On the back of a highly successful compilation for Toolroom Records and the momentous Big Beat outing ‘Life’, illustrious Swedish House maestro John Dahlback emerges from a brief touring hiatus to unleash his next contender for 2012. Calling upon a far funkier sound scope than his more commonly associated Progressive House cuts, Dahlback is all about the groove for his return to Spinnin Records.
Wrapping an infectious top line of mechanically tuned male vocals into his assorted canvas of scattered lead play, the Swede heavyweight pulls off a surprisingly powerful yet inherently unexpected offering. Still packing a solid backbone of driving House stylings, the familiar energy and nostalgic charm more commonly associated with his earlier works are certainly a match made in heaven, establishing ‘Start Lovin You’ as one of his more divergent efforts to date.
