John Dahlbäck Plays Mansion on Saturday, September 19

​Swedish electronic dance music has, for the most part, become synonymous with the hopelessly über-commercial and stale sound of big room players like Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sebastian Ingrosso. Stockholm's John Dahlbäck, however, may very well be an exception, not just in his own work as an internationally-acclaimed DJ/producer, but as owner of Pickadoll Records, a continuously fresh and forward-thinking imprint that has brought us releases by such cutting-edge techno luminaries as Style of Eye, Ida Engberg, and Florian Meindl.

Young prodigy Dahlbäck was born only in 1985, if you can believe it, and released his first track on the Route 33 label at age 15 -- the auspicious beginning to a promising career that has already garnered him worldwide accolades under his own name and as Hugg & Pepp with his cousin Jesper. Join the talented Mr. Dahlbäck for a night of dirty Swedish tech house

at Mansion on Saturday, September 19, along with resident

DJ Chicco Secci.

John Dahlbäck at Mansion Saturday, September 19. 1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Doors open at 11 p.m., tickets cost $15 in advance from Ages 21+ with ID. 305-531-5535.
