tKatKa (pronounced 'Te-Kat-Ker') is a Swedish / English electronic music duo based in London, England. The project is a collaboration between artists PJ Norman and Carlsson. The group formed officially in 2004. Their first release was on a compilation for the gLASSsHRIMP show on Resonance FM in early 2005. In late 2005 a white label of their track "Lazerslab" was broadcast by the influential BBC Radio 1 DJ Annie Nightingale. This led to a record deal in 2006 with the independent London label Junkbait Music through which they released two well received singles. In 2007 they released their self-titled debut LP tKatKa on 100m Records, followed in 2008 with their second full-length 'TerrorKnowledgeAction'.

With these releases, tKatKa garnered radio-play from John Kennedy and Nick Luscombe (both XFM); and from Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC Radio 1). They have received international support from the James Zabiela 4 series mix compilation, which featured on various European radio stations, including Kiss FM. They are represented on the European music industry compilation, Radioxclusives, which is serviced to over 300 radio stations worldwide and has so far gained them further radio-play in countries as far afield as Croatia, Scandinavia and Russia.

The duo's critically acclaimed live show includes Dan Foord (of renowned math-metal group SiKth) on drums, Will Alderwick (Far Cries, Clay Machine Gun) on bass, and bespoke visuals provided by the much in demand VJs Triggerset.

Previous live highlights include Bestival on the Isle of Wight curated by BBC Radio 1 DJ Rob Da Bank; the Royal Festival Hall with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment; the Exceptional Records showcase in association with Big Chill; Flomotion with Nick Luscombe; and the Shortwave Film Festival in London.

tKatKa are currently taking selected live bookings worldwide.
