On My Way - Tobtok
I (weirdly) don't talk about EDM on the Daily Song Drop a lot, considering my background, but today to wrap up this week, I thought we could enjoy the latest release by Swedish DJ Tobias Karlsson AKA Tobtok called "On My Way", which you can check out below:
"On My Way" is an expertly constructed combination of house and nu-disco elements, combined with a light tropical flair to give the track an upbeat, summery vibe perfect to help shake off the dead-of-winter blues. The vocals are the best kind of catchy (I'm singing along pretty much every time I hear the track at this point), and this track has party anthem written all over it.
I know I say it a lot when I talk about tracks like "On My Way", but it would be a high rotation party track for me, were I still spinning. The vibe Tobtok coaxes out of this song (thanks in part to the aforementioned tropical additions) is exactly what I always look for when it comes to feel-good, often summer, party tracks.
I hope this track explodes, because Tobtok really deserves to get recognition for a production this good.
For the first time ever on theguysfrom.com, here is the December Apple Music Playlist, and the December '17 Spotify Playlist! I decided that, rather than making myself crazy with a hybrid list between the two months (and thanks to the fact that I did a feature-full month) I would put this one together, which just means that the January playlist will be a tad shorter than most thanks to the TGF Top 50 Songs of 2017 (with the in countdown order Apple Music TGF Top 50 Songs of 2017 as Well as the Spotify TGF Top 50 Songs of 2017 playlists).
And as always, you can check out the December Spotify List here:
ICYMI (somehow) here are the November Apple Music Playlist October 2017 Apple Music Playlist, September 2017 Apple Music Playlist August 2017 DSD Playlist July 2017 DSD Playlist, June 2017 DSD Playlist, May 2017 DSD Playlist DSD Playlist - Apr 17, DSD Playlist - Mar 17 , and there's also one kicking around for DSD Playlist - Feb 17 too!
Not to mention the fact that we totally also have a June '17 Spotify List, a July '17 Spotify List, an August '17 Spotify List, the September 2017 Spotify Playlist, October '17 Spotify Playlist, and November Spotify Playlist too!
If you're looking for me to add these lists somewhere beyond Apple Music and Spotify (or you want some of the old lists on Spotify), you're going to have to convince me (hard) by chatting with me here, or on Twitter
If you're looking for more great music, are late to the party, or just want more theguysfrom.com in your day, here are the Apple Music playlists for:
