Thanksgiving 2013 may be officially over, but artists from all over the world spent all of yesterday tweeting what they were thankful for this year. Yes, even those who aren’t American and don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in their home countries, such as Chuckie, Dada Life, and Cedric Gervais. Below is a collection of Thanksgiving-themed tweets for an extra dose of turkey-induced candidness.
Swedish duo Dada Life has never feared authority, constantly pushing boundaries for larger, wilder shows and staying true to their party-hard slogan tunes like “Born to Rage.” Earlier this week at Dada Life’s Dada Land tour stop in Miami, attendees were greeted and halted at the door by a police force, dressed in full riot gear. As supporting artist Tritonal finished their set, Dada Life began to reach out to fans, seemingly as confused as the crowd was.
“Apparently Fire Marshall locked the gates since it’s pretty much chaos here in Dada Land … Did they shut us down?” Soon after, the duo explained, “Riot squad is here in Dada Land … They are shutting us down. It’s out of our hands! So sad we can’t play.”
Though details regarding the shut down have been simply explained as “logistical issues” by management, the duo ensures all ticket buyers are able to receive a full refund for the cancelled event or attend Dada Life’s rescheduled ‘make-up’ show on December 28th in South Florida.

Dada Land is going global. As Dada Life return with their first original production since dropping a full-length album over one year ago, their newest solo work makes up for the 365 day absence. The aptly titled “Born To Rage” brings forth the over-the-top energy they deliver from festival stages… and then some. Provoking rage from listeners through production, the vocal does the same — and the duo have released 39 versions, each tailored to countries around the world.

It’s no secret that things have been quiet in the so-called sovereign nation of Dada Land. This time last year the animated Swedish duo of Dada Life had dance music fans drowning in champagne and bananas as one of the hottest main stage commodities with a handful of hits amidst a full-length album. Since laying down The Rules Of Dada, however, they’ve kept further original pieces under wraps while checking in with the occasional remix.
Well, Dada Life have broken that silence and are finally letting “Born To Rage” loose, their newest track that’s been circulating their festival sets and providing their strongest punch. Extra-heavy electro (per usual), sneaky melodies upon an improved sausage fattener build, and a drop that will leave no Dada faithful disappointed. “Born To Rage” comes as a wink to those who counted the duo down and out — a return that will be certified with an official full-length release on October 28th.
Editors’ Note: Tomorrow, October 16th, marks the one-year anniversary of The Rules of Dada, making the imminent release “Born To Rage” their first original track in over one year.Posted by

Tickets for the event, held at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom, are available here. Buy yours today and come out swinging!

Shortly after it was released, Major Lazer’s “Bubble Butt” inspired a twerk revolution and Dada Life plan to fan the flames with their high octane, sausage fattened remix. Adding their signature grit, Olle and Stefan take “Bubble Butt” out of its cheeky comfort zone and turn the track into something sinister. The Hyde to Major Lazer’s Jekyll, Dada Life’s “Bubble Butt” is anything but bubbly, turning the tracks namesake into a maniacal growl. While it still may inspire impromptu ass-shaking the results are prompted to be much more extreme.Posted by
Last weekend in Toronto, a jam-packed roster of electronic talent took to Veld Music Festival for 48 hours of Canada’s premier summer dance energy. Dancing Astronaut was on site to capture the greatest and most entertainment moments from the DJ booth to the grounds. From the memorable drops to the laughs and fun-loving festival feel, we presents the best of Veld Music Festival 2013 through our photo diary comic strip.
It’s that time of year again; the polls for the DJ Mag‘s 2013 edition of their Top 100 DJs ranking have opened. Hailed often as a popularity contest, the chart is indirectly correlated with talent but aligned with the mindset of dance music’s fan base. While my ballot (which I will reveal later in this piece) is still unfinished, I’ve found it a priority led by intuition to predict the fate of the 2013 DJ Mag rankings.
I’ve observed the prestigious top 10 spots, artists who have yet to break the top 100, DJ Mag sophomores, projected winners and losers, and even how the former Swedish House Mafia will affect the polls. Each day, week, and moment of the past twelve months have carried weight in the dance music community; here is how I foresee a changing of the guard amongst the industries revered Top 100 DJ rankings.
Along with the opening of Vegas’s third Electric Daisy Carnival tomorrow, Dada Life will be adding its own game for their fans. The rules of the game are simple: find a flag, gain entry to the Consulate for yourself and a guest. Locations of these flags will be posted starting tomorrow morning. Read the full instructions below and get your banana suits on!
