Last Friday we jumped on twitter to do a quick pre-show chat with John Dahlback! Easily regarded as on of the most prolific and diverse producers in the game, we got the low-down on his newest release, “Life (Diamonds in the Dark)” feat. Agnes on Big Beat Records, his North American tour and what we can expect for 2013 (it’s gonna be a big year!) Catch the action after the jump!

• John Dahlbäck launches his North American tour this weekend and readies new single “Life (Diamonds in the Dark)”
We’ve always been aware of the multifaceted talent of Swedish producer, John Dahlbäck, and today he’s cemented his versatility even further as he is giving away a full album under his side project, Demure, which features 13 original downtempo tracks made for easy listening. When juxtaposed to his throbbing club tracks, you almost wouldn’t believe that Dahlbäck was behind this, but his description explains it all — “This album is something I first started doing for my iPod. Something beautiful I could listen to on the plane, bus or wherever I was. I’m now sharing this with you. This is not EDM and not for the clubs. This is purely just for listening.” Amen to that Mr. Dahlbäck, Amen. Download the entire album for free below. √+ Continue Reading
The surreptitious act from London known as letthemusicplay has yet to reveal its true identity. We’ve been guessing at it for months now to no avail, but we can’t complain when they keep releasing quality House tracks to the masses. Most recently, the phantom act has had London-based producer, John Dahlback, take a whack at ‘Don’t Weigh Me Down’ — one of two of ltmp’s latest productions featuring vocals from UTRB. This remix from John is a must have. It lifts the relatively soft original to another level; readying it for the main stage. Get it below. √+ Continue Reading
In praise of the madness about to ensue in the desert for the next 2 weekends, I have created a celebration to the structure that will serve as a haven to much of the music that has built GDD™ to what it is today. I present to you the BONES SAHARA 2012 MIX, built on some of the biggest tracks in dance music as of current, along with a few surprises from the future. Coachella Music Festival gathers the spirit of music as a whole, but I know what you dirty dancers need to get that festival blood pumping as you voyage out to the desert lands of Indio… IN SAHARA WE TRUST.

Following his successful remix for iSquare’s massive Hey Sexy Lady EP, LA’s own Whiiite (formerly DJ Mr. White) brings two more monsters to the table. The Atari Teenage Riot remix has just been released on Dim Mak records, and recent collaboration with bass brilliant Flinch made the cut for Skylar Grey’s Invisible EP (alongside huge remixes by Kaskade, Dirty South, John Dahlback, and Fred Falke). Check out the video preview and download links below, and grab our exclusive bootleg he made for Laidback Luke’s ‘Till Tonight.’
Ladies and Gentlemen, John Dahlback is back (no, not doback) and his new EP Winter is fire! Full of progressive house tunes that are guaranteed to give you that coveted warm feeling in your chest. This two song EP is beautifully constructed and both songs carry a groove that is nothing short of exceptional.
Don’t sleep on this one folks, this EP is the perfect treat to get you through the rest of your winter.
My take on the tracks:
‘Winter’ – This tune builds you up and drops you into that dark beat undertone that is so rare these days.
‘Pour Te’ – This track is a gem. Dahlback’s synth lines are well produced, sustained and complex.
