‘So Cold’ was born from a collaboration between two fast rising stars, each boasting an impressive list of plaudits. Los Angeles’ Mahalo has seen support from Tiesto, Mark Knight, Nora En Pure, Blonde and many more for his releases on Bunny Tiger, Enormous, Insomniac’s In/Rotation, Armada and Toolroom. For Toronto-based, DLMT, DJ support has come in from the likes of Oliver Heldens, Tchami, Shaun Frank and Jord, with releases on Virgin/EMI, Confession, Armada and Enhanced Music.
First to remix ‘So Cold’ is Paul Woolford, the red hot UK producer who has turned out some of the biggest tunes of the year, from his vocal house anthem ‘You Already Know’ with Karen Harding (another Perfect Havoc regular) to his remix of Whitney Houston’s ‘Higher Love’ as well as holding down his new BBC Radio 1 Residency. Here he layers up warm chords over deep, 90’s house beats and allows the vocal to soar.
Bass master Cazztek has been making a big impact of late with his floor pumping tunes on the likes of STMPD RCRDS, Confession, Thrive Music and Big Beat. He brings a new perspective to his music and always unites dancers. His remix really jumps out of the speakers; a freaky jam with twisted synths and screwed up bass stabs, warped vocals and mad effects.
Next up is Perfect Havoc’s remix maestro, Kokiri. Everything this young Liverpool producer touches turns to gold. On Perfect Havoc, his remix of Karen Harding’s ‘Picture’ stayed firmly on the airwaves with Mistajam for weeks on end, and via a string a credible releases on Ministry of Sound, Nothing Else Matters and Armada, he counts Annie Mac, Pete Tong, David Guetta, Oliver Heldens and many more as supporters. Here he layers in some turbulent bass that stays down low and makes the track that bit darker.
Long time Perfect Havoc signing, Tobtok a.k.a Tobias Karlsson, is one of the most exciting young producers to emerge from the Swedish scene in recent years, releasing tracks on labels including Kitsune, Toolroom, Astralwerks, Ministry of Sound and more. His remix of ‘So Cold’ will gets hands in the air with big, festival sized chords and an expansive groove that soars to the heavens.
French electronic music duo Raven & Kreyn, played and supported by David Guetta, Don Diablo and Avicii amongst others, offer a version to sing along to with big breakdowns and sunny synths that bring the good times, then finally, up and comers Bruer x Bright Lies up the ante with wild bass stabs, tender vocals and a real energy.
Perfect Havoc have crafted a diverse set of remixes brimming with invention from start to finish. The label has now achieved over 100 million streams on Spotify and Apple with tracks from its roster of breaking talents such as Oliver Nelson, Tobtok, Karen Harding, Kokiri, and Joel Corry who helped the label achieve its first ever Top 10 UK chart hit with ‘Sorry’. With a highly tuned ear for both underground and mainstream hits, Perfect Havoc has licensed to labels including Atlantic Records, Ministry of Sound, Polydor, Toolroom, Thrive and Astralwerks.
