Soulshock & Karlin

Soulshock & Karlin is a duo of Danish record producers and songwriters, Carsten Schack and Kenneth Karlin. They have produced a large number of successful songs, including Monica's "Before You Walk out of My Life", Whitney Houston's "Heartbreak Hotel", JoJo's "Leave (Get Out)", and Toni Braxton's "I Love Me Some Him". In a reference to a famous commercial, Arena Magazine called the team, "Probably the best R&B producers in the world" (March 2001).

Soulshock & Karlin have written and produced hits for many artists such as Brandy, Usher, Monica, Whitney Houston, Luther Vandross, Craig David and Sting in "Rise and Fall", and 2Pac in "Do For Love", "Me Against The World", "I Wonder If Heaven Got A Ghetto", "Old School", and "Baby Don't Cry." Their remix credits include Usher's "U Got It Bad," and "Brokenhearted" by Brandy and Wanya Morris of Boyz II Men.

The duo took a break from working together in 2010 when Soulshock was asked to become a judge on the Danish version of X-Factor before becoming the in-house producer for the U.S. incarnation of the show. Since reuniting early in 2016 the duo have new songs and productions lining up for release with several major label artists including K Michelle, Marko Penn feat Gucci Mane, Carter Park feat G-Eazy, H.I.M, Luke Christopher, Solo Lucci and several others.
