Swedish hit producer John De Sohn returns with perhaps his most prestigious single to date. Teaming up with the ever-inspiring NY singer/songwriter Inyang Bassey, the dynamic duo lays out the bittersweet vocal house gem When The World Was Happy.

Born as Björn Johnsson, famed Swedish DJ/producer John De Sohn has been making a steady rise to fame for the last ten years. Rising up from the Stockholm club scene, he started to make waves with a series of hit records that crossed the bridges between progressive house, deep house, pop, and Avicii-styled anthems.

He knows how to write a gripping song, and has been perfecting his craft throughout the years.
