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. A white label of their track "Lazerslab" was first broadcast by the influential BBC Radio 1 DJ Annie Nightingale.

In 2006 they released two well-received singles ("Lazerslab" and "Bedroom Dust") and a full length self-titled album in 2007 on 100m Records. The covers for these releases were shot by Diana Scheunemann. Notably, they gained early support from DJs Mary Anne Hobbs, James Zabiela and Nick Luscombe.

In 2008 tKatKa released their second full-length album, "TerrorKnowledgeAction". The album included the single "Grief Hijackers" which was an extensive remix of the original song by Tom Hickox.
