Since its release in January, Oliver Nelson and Tobtok’s fresh take on Nena’s iconic “99 Red Balloons” has taken the world by storm while also receiving support from top DJs including Tiesto and Oliver Heldens.
Keeping the party going through the spring, the Swedish team have recruited CID and Mahalo for remix duty. CID’s shuffle-friendly offering adds a splash of funky house under the classic vocal while Mahalo heads straight for the big room with a peak time melody. Oliver Nelson’s productions have amassed 235 million plus streams across platforms such as YouTube, Spotify and Soundcloud while reaching No. 1 on Hype Machine 10 times over.
Career highlights include releasing music on Kistuné and being a resident DJ in Europe for the tastemaker French label in addition to touring around the world, his own Toolroom Records mix compilation (Croatia Poolside 2016), his remix of NEIKED’s “Sexual” (over 12.3 million streams to date and multiple plays on BBC Radio 1) and Ella Henderson’s “Ghost” (17.5 million streams to date), his Polydor single “Found Your Love” and his first ever collaboration with Tropical House king Kygo for the artist’s second album Kids In Love titled “Riding Shotgun.”
The track instantly hit a number of viral charts in Norway and the USA and had over one million streams within a week on Spotify. Oliver recently remixed Kesha and Mystery Skulls and will be touring the US for the second time in March 2018.
