It was fleeting like a hot hand at the blackjack table, and just like that we were back home in Los Angeles wondering how a hectic weekend in the desert went by so fast. It was Thursday, and I had the grandiose idea of starting the weekend off by catching Richie Hawtin at Drai’s, a dark club in the underbelly of the Las Vegas Strip that played host to some of the biggest names in Techno over the weekend. Word was he wasn’t starting until 4AM, so that left some time for a quick pitstop at Benny Benassi at the Cosmopolitan Hotel’s Marquee Nightclub. Marquee is what Vegas is all about. Scantily glad girls and even more scantily clad employees, and enough energy in the air to get everyone through till morning even without however many Redbull vodkas they may have in their system.

Homemade studio videos from the Dada Life boys have to be some of the most entertaining assets that come through our inbox, and the latest episode from the Swedes takes a bit of a different direction that what we’ve previously seen from them. The guys have been hard at work in their studio, where Ollé has told us they get started early every morning rather than doing late night sessions like many other producers. Their new album is coming along, and they’ve asked their fans to chime in regarding whether or not to add vocals to the new production they’ve put together. Have a watch/listen to the video above, and comment below with what you think they should do with this new jam.
Super Viral Brothers are the creative project between Dada Life‘s Olle Cornéer and power vocalist Anthony Mills. The Swedish duo made a lot of noise in 2010/2011 with the singles “Hot Chocolate + Polar Bear Rug” and “Captain Cessna”, as well as the two part “Flu Shot” and “Swine Flu Shot” mixtapes. In accordance with their mission to make pop music interesting again Super Viral Brothers now release their debut album Wires In Love! The duo have given us the green light to giveaway the single ‘Needlessly’ – a baby making groove machine that takes the Dada on the lighter side. Grab the tune below, and be sure to grab Super Viral Brothers full album Wires In Love on Spotify!
The new single from the album is the beautiful – and epic, in the classic sense – song “Needlessly”.
Everyones favorite swedish duo gets you ready for a massive March as we look forward to WMC/Ultra and Coachella around the corner. Curated with their favorite tunes right now (not even one of their own!), jam this while you break your piggy bank to cover your initial festival season expenses. Or in the Dada Life way, GO BANANAS.

In the lifting spirit of the festival season, our boys Dada Life have sent us their new Guerilla Fart #14 to give to you dirty dancers. This time, the crazy Swedes have taken the classic “Drop The Pressure” by Mylo and sent it straight through the grinds of the sausage fattener. Presto.DADA.
Amidst a rampant touring schedule, our boys Olle + Stefan of Dada Life still make time to procure a mix once a month as a giveaway for their fans. On the 31st day of this month, the guys were able to cook 11 tracks served Dada-style to us all — featuring signature Big Room Electro sound with tracks from Tommy Trash, Quintino, Hardwell, and more.
To kick things off for my residency @ the infamous Dim Mak Studios (aka Dim Mak Tuesdays) in 2012, I have created a new mixtape to get you all hyped for the year to come. I’ve packed it with several of the artists that DMS has hosted and some of the upcoming talent, as well as some of my own forthcoming releases and friends too! So grab ahold of the new year with this boomer, and I hope to see you all on Tuesdays @ Dim Mak Studios.
From the moment I heard all the details about Insomniac’s latest party, White Wonderland, I knew it was something I had to check out for myself. Up until the moment I actually stepped foot into the Anaheim Convention Center, I was not really sure what to expect. I did not actually believe that Insomniac could pull off a 21+, white party, in Orange County of all places. I am pleased to report back they proved me wrong on all fronts.
