A year after “Life” was first introduced to via Tiësto’s Club Life Volume 2, Dahlback provides us with his revamped vocal version, “Diamonds in the Dark,” which spins new energy into the already blissful track. The Swede shows off his home country’s never-ending pool of talent by asking one of Sweden’s biggest pop stars, Agnes Carlsson, to deliver the lush lyrics. The original instrumental was declared Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune, which naturally made it an easily recognizable set favorite across the board, and was even included in our Top 50 Tracks of 2012.
The Big Beat Records release comes with three remixes from the likes of Australian newcomers Feenixpawl, Canadian electro-stars Lazy Rich and fellow Swede’s Lunde Bros. Feenixpawl brings the glitchy rendition, Lazy Rich offers the big room electro house, and Lunde Bros switch things minimal. Dahlback wanted to showcase up-and-coming talent rather than go with the most well-known artists – a fantastic decision on his part judging by the depth of the remixes below.
