He’s from Sweden and spins house music… but John Dahlback has more than carved out his own place in the Swedish dance music pecking order. Known for his techy yet melodic, sometimes disco-esque basslines; Dahlback rips dance floors apart with a style that everyone can vibe with.
2010 marked the release of his 2xCD ‘Mutants’ album (October) as well a recent remix for Benny Benassi (December). Mutants is also the name of his new label, an imprint on the infamous Defected Records.
He’s from Sweden and spins house music as well… but Albin Meyers is more than carving out his own place in the Swedish dance music pecking order. Hmmm… interesting. After watching his YouTube channel, Club Glow became instance fans of Albin’s music, personality, and yes, the mohawk.
Seeing the two of them together is like watching a magician pull a rabbit from a hat while telling a hilarious joke and hooking you up with backstage passes at the same time. Pretty awesome…
Growing up with a drumming father and singing mother, I’ve always been attracted by different sounds which developed into my own music. I guess rather than going to parties all the time I’d rather use the energy every day to go to the studio early in the morning and leave late afternoon.
Creating a song with lyrics, that don’t always make sense as the hook (!), my career took another step. Take “Blink” which means a lot for me, being as different as I wanted it to be, it made it onto radio, TV and put my name on the list which I’m really grateful for. So where could I go from there I thought, well, I just keep doing what I love and stick to my own sound. The new album which will be out after the summer, which funny enough is my sixth, I’ve done everything on it I’ve always wanted to. Cool beats, unusual melodies and characteristic vocals, I guess summarize me as a person.
Defected has always been one of my favorite labels and working with them is an honor. So now it’s time to finally start releasing music from the album, and on my own new label Mutants, I feel proud that I’ve done it. Hopefully you’ll also enjoy it as much as I do and want to thank you for being there, giving me your feedback and supporting me.
Being brought up in a family with theatre & music as the first and foremost love, it is easy to understand the will and driving force behind Albin Myers’ music. When he teamed up with Swedish label Joia Records in 2008, Albin got the great chance to remix some of the biggest artists and projects in the contemporary Dance Music scene, such as David Guetta & Kelly Rowland, Erick Morillo, Tom Novy, EDX, John Dahlbäck and Greg Cerrone to name a few…
When it comes to Albin Myers DJing, it definitely something you have to see. With the greatest energy behind the decks, using his whole body to express the music, Albin gets his crowds dancing in no time!
As Albin now breaks ground with his own releases such as “Times Like These”,”There 4 You”, “Jump” &” Romani Beats” and with original productions for Serial, Pickadoll and the UK’s own Defected, the future looks even brighter than the recent past for this high-flying artist.
