Tooli

Tobias Lidström aka Tooli has since 2007 been promoting, arranging and playing at parties all over Sweden and abroad.

As a promoter Tobias been involved in several clubs, booked djs and promoted venues on a regular basis. The main project for a very long time was 24:hrs which started as a site to promote new music and then grew to become a record label and finally one of Stockholms premier clubs.
24:hrs was nominated best club in Stockholm and some of the Djs invited to play include Dirty Soundsystem, Tensnake, Tony Lionni, Hercules & Love Affair, House Of House, Gerd Janson (Running Back), San Soda, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Levon Vincent, Prince Language, Black Devil Disco Club and many more.

in 2011 Tooli joined forces with Mad Mats (of Raw Fusion) and they set up Local Talk.
So far the Local Talk & Basic Fingers releases has gained fans in Gilles Peterson, DJ Harvey, Joey Negro, Danny Krivit, Jacques Renault, Hose Meat Disco, Axel Boman, Deetron, Chez Damier, The Revenge, Jimpster and many more. Since the first release in June 2011 they’ve been working hard and released 61 releases, not including the sub-labels 1nce Again, OneOffs and LTX which also is the LT umbrella. Late 2013 they set up Telefonplan, an techno label which focuses on deeper and off-side shades of techno and electronic music.

Since Tooli is a restless person he also decided to start a label of his own in 2014, Omena (that’s apple in Finish) and Omena LTD. So far the labels has managed to put 7 glorious releases.
