John Dahlback Catches Butterflies

Text by Jonty Skrufff (Skrufff.com)

Swedish uber-producer John Dahlback, whos emerged in the last 12 months as one of the most prolific and talented producers in electro-house, has continued his run of form, on My Mys new single Butterflies & Zebras, out next month on Aus Music.

The 20 year old star has ditched much of the Berlin trios original parts and replaced them with his own electro-tinged synth stabs, delivering a minimal-ish DJ tool style track that will effortlessly cross genres, reflecting his regular production techniques.

I love sitting in a studio and I do it from nine to five every day, just making new tracks and exploring new things. I dont want to be trapped inside a tech house box or a deep house box, I want to mix styles together, Dahlback told Skrufff last November.

I think people who buy my records can be both house DJs and techno DJs, because most of my tracks are like cross over between those styles, he continued, I take the approach that Im doing stuff that I can play when Im DJing; my thought is to make music for the DJs because house music isnt really listening music.

Butterflies & Zebras is out on Aus Music on September 4.
