AWAKENING with John Dahlback
Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 9:00 PM (PST)
San Francisco, CA
Label owner, producer, remixer and DJ: there isn’t much John Dahlback hasn’t done during his decade-young career. Now, at just 28, he sits atop the global dance scene with a forthcoming album on one of the world’s leading (and largest) electronic labels Ultra and a diary that defines the term transatlantic as he jets back and forth between America, Ibiza and beyond. Rewind just on eleven years and we find John at the start of his professional journey, signing his first releases at the tender age of 17, which even by the youthfully dominated standards of the world of dance, is remarkable.
And, just in case there was any further doubt regarding his mission statement, John’s summer highlight of 2013 is the first in a label artist led ‘Mutants Presents’ compilation series, which he personally mixed and describes as “... (a) merger of Mutant’s past, present and future... a testament to the skill and talent of the producers we’ve featured and, in some cases, discovered.” So, keep a close watch on this space, there’s no doubt John’s devotion to Mutants will continue to help cement it’s position as one of the planet’s most exciting independent dance brands, although by hid own admission it is keeping him on his toes,
“It’s a good job the process of A&Ring the label is a by-product of my DJing,” he expands,”I’m not sure where I’d find the time otherwise!” This is no understatement; John Dahlback the DJ IS a very busy boy! In recent years his diary has bloomed and taken him around the world. Repeatedly.
Most recently it has paid the ultimate acknowledgment as he secured a residency in the fast emerging clubbing Mecca of Las Vegas at the Wynn XS, which puts him in the rarified company of a handful of notable A-listers who’ve also turned to the city as a residing base.
“I’m honoured and delighted to be one of the few who get to play in America so often,” says John with glee, “Whether it’s Vegas or beyond the crowd’s are always amazing and enthusiastic.” When not acquainting himself with one of the fifty states, John’s equally happy touring the globe, establishing himself at seminal venues and festivals such as Pacha & Ushuia Ibiza; MoS, London; Mansion & Liv, Miami; Tomorrowlands Belgium, Tomorrow World Altanta, Dance Valley, Holland; Green Valley Brazil, EMPO Mexico, Stereosonic Australia and so the list goes on...
Despite the fact John can only play one city in one country a night, he keeps his global fanbase happy (over 200k Facebook likes and counting) with his weekly Mutants Radio Podcast. Whilst John thinks being in front of a microphone ‘feels weird’, he’s fully embraced the importance of digital and social media and uses it as way to interact with his fans as much as possible as he explains,
“Feedback’s really important to me. It helps shape my output and decide on future endeavours. I know it’s been said before, but I wouldn’t be where I am without my fans so their voice is crucial. They’re the future really.” Wise and fitting words indeed: John Dahlback and the future are two things that undoubtedly go hand in hand.
