Review - Dada Life - The Rules of Dada
It seems like 99.9999999999% of the good music has been flying out of Sweden, lately.
Dada Life’s latest album “The Rules of Dada” took the renowned electronic band’s signature electro genre to a whole new level. The DJ duo takes that hard synth and distorts it into oblivion before throwing in a house thrashing drum line to pull it altogether.
It makes you want to run around, grind, jump, and seize all at the same time, especially on the album’s first track “Kick Out the Epic Motherfucker.” Throughout the whole album, the group sticks to their signature harmonized buzz-synth and stutter vocals but throw in a few trance factors like reverb’d pianos and that fun clap sound Cascada uses.
“Happy Violence,” which was released a year or so ago, makes an appearance in the middle of the album. Dada Life ventures a little into vocal house with “Rolling Stones T-Shirt.” The vocals over a good pair of headphones will please any true audiophile while blasting “So Young So High” will send any listener into youth-powered euphoria.
The album ends on a strong note the trance-based “Don’t Stop” and looking back at the whole album you’re not gonna want to.
