It seems there is a new ambassador of Dada Land. The mysterious and even anonymous Andybody is the first signee to Dada Life‘s So Much Dada imprint, and he’s set for his first release this May. Following suit with stamping electro stylings, Andybody takes a melodic route for his inaugural effort, “The First Bass Is The Deepest.” Offering his “First Bass,” the Dada Land ambassador is bound to make his mark on the electro landscape, and Dada Life will come to aid with their own edit of the single to be released on May 27th.
Dancing Astronaut is pleased to treat 5 lucky Northern California readers to a pair of tickets to tomorrow’s Dada Life show with Deniz Koyu, Mat Zo, Pierce Fulton, and Ken Loi at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond, CA.

Coming off the release of their 2013 artist album, Free The Universe, Diplo’s side project is taking on a challenge for their latest production. Known for downtempo and dancehall tunes, Major Lazer counteracts everything familiar about Dada Life‘s “Boing Clash Boom,” restructuring the boisterous track with bouncy reggaeton. The clashs and booms are long gone, and the Rules of Dada offering has gone through a complete transformation to become an unrecognizable party-starter to be released soon via So Much Dada.Posted by

It’s time to Feed the Dada.
Enter the contest after the break.
Though Dada Life, the jubilant Swedish duo of Olle and Stefan, did not bring their champagne and bananas to Ultra this year, their music certainly found its way into many a main stage set. Their remix to the Bingo Players’ ”Out of My Mind” was one such tune that received its fair share of playtime during the festival. Emphasizing the Bingo Players’ easily recognizable melody, Dada Life provide a slamming electro house take on the popular single. With its powerful bassline and stuttered kicks, the remix has a bit of a darker edge in the way of R3hab or Dyro. It may not be their most original work yet, but it certainly inspired havoc on the colossal Ultra speakers last weekend.

After declaring Dada Land a soverign nation with international fan-led rallies, Dada Life is offering another remix from The Rules of Dada. Following Dillon Francis and his chart-topping rendition, Tiësto follows with his take of “So Young So High,” taking the track from fun-loving to big room-shaking. Opting for a percussive oomph, Tijs steers away from his recent melodic trend that has been heard on many of his recent remixes.

I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for any track that remixes Marina and the Diamonds. Like Chuckie and Benny Benassi before them, the Swedish duo, Dada Life, take on Marina and the Diamond’s latest single “How to be a Heartbreaker,” tar and feathering the sound siren’s original in a trough of electro house grime. Dada Life‘s larger than life kick drums and signature high-energy chord progressions are all at work here, complementing Marina’s alt-rock vocal cuts to satisfy the greasy electro appetite in all of us.Posted by
