Dada Life Claims Dadaists Copied Them, Not Other Way Around

If dance music were high school, Dada Life would be the two popular, trouble-making best friends, the cool partiers who orchestrate pranks, throw parties when your parents are away, and keep everyone laughing in class.

Their not-so-serious approach to dance music was a breath of fresh air, standing out from the "cool guy" image that so many DJs try too hard to portray.

Since their champagne and banana eruption into mainstream dance music, Swedes Olle Corneer and Stefan Engblom have managed to cause multiple massive riots, have their passports revoked after trying to declare Dada Land its own country (missing Miami Music Week), host their own music festival, and break the Guinness World Record for largest pillow fight.
