John Dahlback feat. Little Boots – Heartbeat (Original Mix)
John Dahlback’s reign over global dance floors scales more than 13 years — a legacy that has seen the Stockholm-based talent remain increasingly relevant courtesy of a chameleon-like stance over the big room sound. His debut single on Tiësto’s Musical Freedom imprint sees the long serving Swede unite with British pop songstress Little Boots. The new collaboration is another coherent stab at coining a vocal dance center-piece following Dahlback’s recent single “You Can Touch” for Doorn Recordings.
A culmination of huge melodic movements and meaty lead work paves the perfect route for Little Boot’s subtle yet notably strong topline: one that is reinforced with just enough of Dahlback’s melodic aptitude to keep “Heartbeat” from becoming a radio-friendly cop-out. We’re seeing a lot of strong offerings on a variety of high-end labels from the Swede in 2014, serving as a definitive reminder that John Dahlback still has an essential corner to hold where the European talent pool is concerned.
