“Life” was officially released on Big Beat Records today. The track was originally named “Song Saved My Life” before Dahlbäck shortened it to just “Life.” This is a huge tune, progressive house magic if you will! The simple, yet catchy synth riffs and massive bassline drop in this song are sure to make it a notable of 2012. And I could not be happier because it is about time John Dahlbäck received some more recognition; he is very underrated. If you dig the track, be sure to support John Dahlbäck by heading over to Beatbort and buying the track.

And as a bonus, here is a snippet of Dahlbäck’s 2011 Tomorrowland set, in which he drops “Life” (formerly known as “Song Saved My Life”) with an a cappella of “Walking On the Moon.”
Earlier today (9:30pm UK time = 4:30pm NY time), Madeon performed a phenomenal set for the BBC Radio 1 show at Hull City Hall. Head over to the BBC site to check out the whole broadcast; it’ll only be up for a limited time though. Madeon’s set starts around 1:04.30. And you can finally peep Madeon’s “Song 2″ Remix, which I talked about here, at 1:17.00.
Dirty South, Thomas Gold, and Kate Elsworth have teamed up again to bring us “Eyes Wide Open,” their second combined effort since “Alive.” The track was recently previewed on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio 1 show and sets the tone for what looks to be a great year for all of them. Originally, Elsworth’s vocals were meant to be added to a bootleg that Dirty South & Thomas Gold were working on. However, the two producers fell so in love with the Elsworth’s vocals that they decided to forgo the bootleg and just make a song around her vocals. The result: “Eyes Wide Open,” a beautiful display of Elsworth’s talents and one of the first of this year’s progressive house anthems.
