Having hammered the digital market with his eclectic studio spoils throughout the past few years, longserving Swedish producer John Dahlback drops yet another resilient original release in the form of ‘Don’t Stop’ for his own Mutants Records. From a rising array of melodic play to gritty leads and rasping low-end bass surges without the addition of overused Electro hallmarks, the two-sided release of ‘Don’t Stop’ furthers the widespread belief that Dahlback is an eclectic and consistent force amid European dance music with an ante-upping release for 2013.

Canadian Electro-stomper Richard Billis, better known to the world as Lazy Rich, returns to Rising Music following last year’s ‘Damage Control’ with a new original release featuring Gita Lake, the wife of Gita Lake and vocalist of ‘Sundown’ and ‘Stand Up’ fame.

While the original leaps from subtle piano play and Gita’s discordant yet infectious vocal line to pulsing low-end drops, the accompanying remix sees John Dahlback on hand to chop ‘Insomnia’ into a bleep-happy formula.

Brotherly Stockholm duo and widely supported House enthusiasts Lunde Bros are back to take on remix duties for the vocal mix of John Dahlback’s ‘Life’, featuring Swedish pop princess Agnes, for their first release of 2013.

Still boasting the exceptionally varied properties now associated with the John Dahlback approved maestros, the duo provides a solid contender for the soundtrack to one of Dance music’s most important yearly outings, better known as Miami Music Week.

Laced with haunting synth play, coarse leads and his characteristically chunky Electro House, this gritty peak time track proves once again that the hands of time and fashion are yet to deter Dahlback from laying down standard-setting tracks as well-produced as they are powerful.

Given a surge of delicate melodic builds and fuzzing Electro leads, Musical Freedom’s own Mikael Weermets matches his Swedish peer John Dahlback’s offering with a bold display sharp keys and ferocious synth work, leaving Italian duo Master Mood to bring typically low-end Electro hallmarks and dotted samples to the original. Leaning towards the realms of peak time club fuel that has characterized the summer clubbing season throughout, this Swede heavy package successfully shows the more heavyset potential behind Kay’s unmistakable vocal stylings.

Just when it seemed like John Dahlback’s quality-over-quantity approach had been rightly subscribed, 2012 would prove a year of no half measures for the longserving Swedish House producer. Hot on the heels from his latest release for Toolroom Records, ‘Sing That‘, Dahlback continues his onslaught of eclectic club fuel with his debut release for Laidback Luke’s Mixmash Records, ‘Get Wild’.

As highlighted in his collection of exclusive previews set to drop throughout 2012 and premiered in his guest mix duties for ImanoS’ Decked Out mix series, the filthy and Electro-filled instrumentals that make up ‘Get Wild’ alongside a display of cranked samples are yet another indicator of the fact that Dahlback has never been much for sticking to one solitary sound.

Update: Full sample added.

Joined by New York-based Greg Cerrone, Swedish heavyweight John Dahlback is back at the forefront of bass-heavy club music for a third release on Big Beat Records, following up on his ‘Panic‘ EP for Rising Music. Comfortably building a repertoire of disjointed Electro House around Janice Robinson’s top line, formerly known as the vocals for ‘Life‘, ‘Every Breath’ marks a strong return to collaborative efforts for Dahlback. But where the original is well and truly a low-end affair at its strongest moments, the B-Side of the package sees Vancouver producer Lucky Date round off the two-track release with a remix of blistering Electro.
