Amid the hustle and bustle of declaring Dada Land a sovereign nation, Dada Life take some time out from the politics to unveil their new remix for the latest Bingo Players single, ‘Out Of My Mind’, as premiered on Hysteria Radio.

Showcasing the Swedish duo’s signature meat grinder sound alongside the instantly recognizable melodies of the original version, Dada Life’s Hysteria Radio-premiered remix drives a considerably heavier undertone into ‘Out Of My Mind’.

Out on April 1st.

As officially premiered on last night’s episode of Diplo and Friends on BBC Radio 1, genre-defying American producer Diplo links up with Swedish masters of the fuzz Dada Life for ‘Hit Me’.

Teeming with pitch-defying leads and burly low-end riffage, Diplo and Dada Life mark their return with an unorthodox shot of hope for the prevalent genre. Far from your typical club cut, the Swedish-American trio’s bleep-happy get up breaths new and unexpected life into the genre now on everyone’s agenda for the upcoming Miami season.

More info on the release as we get it.

Dada Life are back on remix duty for their first release of the New Year. Landing their hands on Marina And The Diamonds’ next single ‘How To Be A Heartbreaker’, the band’s somewhat bland attempts to infuse the realms of urban music with an essential club minded injection are resurrected by a duo who certainly know a thing or two about hands in the air moments.

Leading with the party-hard Electro stylings that we have come to associate and love with the Swedish duo, Dada Life lay down a hard-hitting remix of a song that is likely to otherwise have passed over the heads of Dada Life’s increasingly loyal multitude of fans.

A low-quality radio version of the remix is available to download for free via Samsung Mobile USA. More info on the full release as we get it.

Swedish Electro outfit Dada Life up the ante for the release of their second studio album ‘The Rules Of Dada’. Following up on 2009’s ‘Just Do The Dada’, ‘The Rules Of Dada’ acts testament to how the duo’s sound have progressed over the past three years. But with four tracks already released, the burden fell upon the seven unreleased tracks to show the duos Electro stylings in a fresh and positive light.

First heard in late 2010 and showcasing a somewhat fresh melodic stance on the duos sound, ‘Arrive Beautiful Leave Ugly’ starts the album off with bleep-happy stamina. As ‘You Will Do What We Will Do’ emphasizes the simple dotted melodies that Dada Life have come to specialize in, ‘Everything Is Free’ and ‘Boing Clash Boom’ extend the duos sound to a more playful and party-hard height.

But in the aggressive grinding of ‘Bass Don’t Cry’ – by far the more inventive of the albums tracks – as well as soft spoken Progressive finale ‘Don’t Stop’, we see a more sophisticated sense of development in the Swedes’ overall sound – an ironic aural statement given their rule book. But for a collective that suggests ‘If you’re stuck, there’s only one solution: go harder’, Rules Of Dada poses a considerable problem: the album remains glued to a sound no harder than its predecessor. Likely to balance mixed enthusiasm from their global following, to dismiss this hotly tipped record would be unjust given the considerable quality maintained throughout. Without rocking the boat too severely, ‘The Rules of Dada’ captures the essence of Dada Life’s well-developed sound with a few surprises along the way, including a relaxing grand finale.

Further setting the tone ahead of Monday’s release of ”The Rules Of Dada”, Dada Life are back to unveil by far the most inventive track off the album, entitled ‘Bass Don’t Cry’.

First previewed in May earlier this year and extending the duos sound to a more playful and party-hard height, the Rules of Dada inspired ‘Bass Don’t Cry’ emerges as a suitably energetic offering from an act who suggests ‘If you’re stuck, there’s only one solution: go harder.’ But in it’s aggressive yet inventive grinding, the album’s eighth track acts testament to a sophisticated sense of development in Dada Life’s overall approach.

Release date is set for October 15th.

In the wake of the official preview of ‘Boing Clash Boom’, episode 44 of Steve Aoki’s ‘Aoki’s House’ radio show saw the premiere of the second unreleased single from Dada Life’s upcoming album, ‘The Rules of Dada‘.

Rather than deviating from their coarse yet sugary comfort zone, the Swedish duo bring us ‘So Young So High’ in an attempt to perfect the theme that has sent them to such tangible industry heights. Flexing their chart-savvy top lines to daring yet inoffensive dimensions, ‘So Young So High’ marks a considerably safe yet triumphant production for the wackiest duo to bless Swedish Dance music and the global festival circuit alike.

Out October 15th.

As far as whacky Electro House is concerned, Dada Life could hardly be rivalled on today’s bill. But with their latest single still sitting comfortably in Beatport’s top 10, the Swedish Dada Land ambassadors and masters of the fuzz follow up ‘Feed The Dada’ with the long-anticipated release of their remix of Kaskade’s ‘Llove’.

Taking an unexpected turn from their grinding signature sound, the duo ditch Kaskade’s piano-laden instrumental for a mixture of fist-pumping highs and soothing lows. Packing a vital punch of thick drums and jangling overtones, Olle and Stefan match the divine voice of Haley with heavy-stepping beat work and invigorating energy throughout.
