Tobtok Feat. Alex Mills – Shelter (Original Mix)
Tobtok has played an increasingly important part in giving the indie dance circuit a sense of universal songwriting otherwise lacking within the genre. Though the Swedish indie dance talent has been noticeably focused on remix credentials for 2015, the Kitsune-approved producer’s original material seldom falls under the radar. Following up on 2014’s Savannah EP, Alex Mills assists Tobtok’s latest soulful exploration of the vocal dance space for Good Soldier Records.
Opting for emotive impact over obvious genre hallmarks, ‘Shelter’ is a classy club tune masquerading as a romantic European pop song. Expertly balanced instrumentation keeps the track for copping out where club play is concerned, but the fine honing of warm piano riffs and Mill’s standout vocal performance collect together to form a one-up effort from Tobias Karlsson and his original output. There’s unlikely to be a stronger example of indie dance inviting the mainstream crowds to come party on the genre’s own terms, making Tobtok’s latest an essential piece of an emerging bigger picture for artist and genre alike.
