John Dahlbäck Celebrates Toolroom Knights Release at Amnesia Miami Beach

​We don't know what the hell Sweden's putting in its drinking water. But the quiet Scandinavian country appears to be spawning a superior race of DJ megastars intent on world domination!

The Swedish House Mafia dudes have already positioned themselves as the prime EDM ambassadors to this decade's mainstream masses. And then there's Swedish wunderkind John Dahlbäck who's been dropping bombs on international dance floors since the age of 15!

Besides being an accomplished producer and globetrotting DJ, Dahlbäck, now 26 years old, is also a formidable A&R magnate, serving as head honcho of the esteemed Pickadoll and Mutants labels.

But it's as the star acquisition of Mark Knight's Toolroom Records that the talented young Swede is making the biggest waves at the crack of this new year. His current compilation, Toolroom Knights, showcases total command of hard-hitting and anthemic big-room beats across 38 tracks and two mixes.

Pick up a copy on February 5, then go catch the prodigy himself live on February 18 at Amnesia Miami Beach.

John Dahlbäck. Saturday, February 18. Amnesia Miami Beach, 136 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. The party starts at 11 p.m. and tickets cost $30 plus fees via Call 305-538-2424 or visit
