SONG OF THE DAY: John Dahlback ft Agnes – “Life (Diamonds in the Dark)”

Who knew multiple personalities could be so much fun? Swedish producer John Dahlback manages to bounce effortlessly between epic banging tracks (“The Trip”) and gorgeous big room vocals (“Every Breath”). Back in vocal mode, he enlists fellow Swede Agnes to sing his new single “Life (Diamonds in the Dark).” You could easily describe it as the female version of “Don’t You Worry Child” – anthemic stadium house with the big breakdown building up with a dramatic handclap and electro crescendoing to a hands-in-the-air climax.? While still sounding polished and perfect, Agnes’ voice has a passionate rasp to it that adds emotion and passion to the chorus that is repeated for emphasis.? The remixes take the track in a more electro direction, with added touches of stadium (Feenixpawl), glitch (Lazy Rich), and speed garage bassline (Lunde Bros) while managing to keep the vocals completely intact.? One minor quibble on the track is the seemingly uneven mixdown of the original, with Agnes unfortunately buried during the middle section.? Even with that in mind, “Life” is another wonderful release from Dahlback, keeping us anxiously to hear what his next release will sound like.
