John Dahlback and Nadia Ali Do the Uhntz-Uhntz at Mansion on April 28

Sweden gets a lot of things right.

Everyone knows Swedes are gorgeous. They also make awesome meatballs. And when it comes to inexpensive, DIY furniture, IKEA's got the entire house on lock.

Of course, we gotta add awesome house producers to this list of Swedish shit we love. And on Saturday, April 28, Mansion is bringing one of the Scandinavian country's finest exports, John Dahlbäck, to the decks.

Having signed his first record deal at 15, Dahlbäck has been deep in the game for a decade now. These days, he lives in jolly-old London, managing his labels, Pickadoll and Mutants.

But beyond being a record exec, this Swede describes himself as a "slave to the studio," still spending most of his time making smooth and sexy electro, tech, and house tracks for fist-pumping fans everywhere.

At Mansion, he'll be joined by Grammy-nominated dance vocalist Nadia Ali, representing Queens, New York City. She had her big break back in 2001 with hit single "Rapture," later working with big-time boys like Armin Van Buuren.

With these two at the helm, it's guaranteed to be an extremely steamy night of uhntz-uhntz.

John Dahlbäck with special guest Nadia Ali. Saturday, April 28. Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave., Miami. The party starts at 11 p.m. and tickets cost $30 plus fees via Ages 21 and up. Call 305-695-8411 or visit
