Swedish maestro John Dahlback has taken me hostage with yet another banging release, and I think this time I’ve got Stockholm Syndrome. Out this week on Dim Mak is the double-sided single Uh Oh!, a pair of club-ready singles poised to annihilate any dancefloor that gets in the way.
The explosive title track is signature Dahlback–melodic and hard-hitting without becoming a caricature–and it features a unique chord progression that serves as a nice breath of fresh air in the crowded electro scene. The B-side is the vocally driven Walls Come Down, a piece of powerhouse electro that could easily have been the lead single. Rumor has it that Dahlback went through over a hundred versions of the song before deciding on a final version. Call the man crazy, but I have a feeling this is why he’s one of the best producers in the game today. Grab the double-sided single now on iTunes here.
