This Thursday, we’re bringing in a whole lineup of fresh talent to The Central in Santa Monica. Headlining the night will be a duo and a trio from right here in Los Angeles: Religion and Beach Life Kings. Each of these acts are rising names in Electro here in the city of angels, and we’re excited to get back to our roots this week by showcasing their talent to some new ears. Also on the bill will be Will Eastman, coming all the way from DC and representing 1/3 of Volta Bureau.
October 8th marks a monumental event with some of the absolute biggest names in electronic music descending upon Southern California all in the same day. The Club Life College Invasion tour featuring Tiesto, Diplo (just added), Dada Life, & Porter Robinson is coming to the Home Depot Center. A mix of thoroughly established veterans and impressive young talent makes this a must-see show. There are discount tickets for students (w/ ID), so for all of you young ones, there really is no excuse not to go. Regardless, I’d grab a ticket now before it’s too late!
ALAS!Just when you thought it was “too Top 40,” our favorite Swedes Dada Life have taken Guetta‘s ‘Little Bad Girl’ (sorry Freddie) and given it the Sausage Fattener treatment. I know it’s tough playing out those cheesy radio house tunes these days, so thankfully we have the crazy Swedes to give us some crunch for the club. We present this next one to you for FREE, as part of the exclusive Dada Life Guerilla Fart series. Here’s what the boys had to say about it:
“We took David Guetta and put him in our special meat grinder. This is the result. Serve with shitloads of hot sauce.”
Who better to collaborate than two of the leading progressive house producers in 2011, Hardwell & Nicky Romero. I had the pleasure of seeing Hardwell spin immediately following an epic Dada Life set at CONTROL back in June, but I have yet to see Nicky Romero. As I can tell from the preview, the world-class power duo’s new track, “Beta,” grows from a groovy and melodic beginning into a big room monster with an extra electro grind to facilitate your dirty dancing. Mark your calendars, it’s out on September 26th via Spinnin’ Records.
If you have been festival bound this summer then chances are you’ve seen our boys Dada Life destroying stages with the high energy DJ sets they’re known for. They have been on a massive US tour for the past few months and haven’t stopped for anything (example: they literally played 4 different gigs in 3 cities in 24 hours). One of the best things about seeing the Dada live is the surprises they always have in their infamous bootlegs, the GUERILLA FART series. Now, if you’ve done your homework and have paid attention to the new tunes they’ve been dropping in their sets, you would notice some new versions they’ve beefed up and squeezed out (Sausage Fattener, anyone?) with that infamous Dada noise. Today, they’ve given us the exclusive release of their newest ‘Guerilla Fart #12,’ a festival bootleg of Laidback Luke & Steve Aoki’s ‘Turbulence’ smashed with the silly classic Rednex anthem ‘Cotton-Eyed Joe.’ This has been a huge party break track in their sets and went off huge at this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. Enjoy it now for your own sets or just for that party playlist!

The hard-hitting Swedish Electro fiends known as Dada Life have just ended their most recent tour and are back in the Scandinavian homeland for 2 months to put the finishing touches on their album, which they say will have “10-12 bangers” on it. To tide us over until then, Olle and Stefan have worked with Samsung to release a little minimix featuring 6 tracks that are on their heavy rotation. We love the Dada!

Check out this interview of the guys at Tomorrowland chatting about the Sausage Fattener, previewing their new album, and repping some GDD™ gear!
French duo, Mustard Pimp, will be releasing their new single, ZHM, on Dim Mak Records on July 5th, with a gang of top tier remixes being released two weeks later on the 19th. With remixes coming from the likes of Dada Life, Tom Staar, Geht’s Noch?, The Subs, and Cyberpunkers, I’m sure this track will get a whole lot of attention this summer. Check out previews of my favorite few below.
So as you can tell from the past few weeks, we’re beginning to transform The Dirt into a weekly artist guest post, with two fantastic entries from our pals PeaceTreaty and Dave Nada already in the books. This week, I was lucky enough to get in touch with our friend Olle from the ever-popular Swedish duo, DADA LIFE, and he sent over some great new choons as well as a couple classics that he and Stefan will always have a soft spot for. Here’s what the guys had to say about their selection…
“We serve you: a slab of red meat mixed with alcohol, bananas and white noise. Eat it up. And then shake it off in your living room.”
So enjoy, dirty dancers, and be on the lookout for some more great artist Dirts in the future. Most of the tracks below are 192kbps samples, so make sure you support these artists and buy the 320s on Beatport.
