It's been a busy couple of months for Swedish maestro John Dahlback
. Last month he released his exciting collaboration with Benny Benasssi
on Ultra Music
- a rework of his legendary 'Blink' which propelled him into the limelight at the time it came out. Now he seizes the opportunity to remix the pair's 'Blink Again', and of course he has done so in typically effortless style. Taking elements of the original and making them harsher, this version is a more persistent, driven sound. Dahlback draws on the simplicity of the rhythmical patterns and fuses a Techno-fuelled harshness into the track. Punchy, bold and assertive, it's refreshing that this remix takes on a new path from 'Blink Again.'
