To all the loyal John Dahlback fans, he sees you. To unveil his latest single, the Swedish producer took to social media to proclaim “Exclusive preview for you, my fans. You are my gods,” before sending them to check out the preview for the aptly titled “We Were Gods.” Treading a much lighter path than electro, the track nods to the non-house side of Swedish music by calling on the skills and vocals of Stockholm’s indie pop quintet Urban Cone and their young producer pal Lucas Nord. With twinkling piano, earnest vocals, and of course a gritty thunk or two, the tune carries the uplifting feel that is meant to fill the biggest room of all: the festival grounds. Though summer will have shuttered its doors by the time the track hits Beatport on September 13th, we can only hope the TomorrowWorld stage proves up to the task.
