"If 2010 was a pizza with all different kinds of yummy stuff, 2011 will be the year when it explodes and hits people in the face. We're more than ready for that," says the statement we received from Dada Life when we got in touch. Hopefully the news that they've been included in the Top 100 will be like the little black olive slap bang in the middle, surrounded by all the other yummy stuff they've been enjoying this year, namely touring with Tiësto, playing show-stealing sets at Nocturnal festival and Electric Daisy Carnival and giving their trademark sound to remixes of artists as diverse as Martin Solveig, Dan Black, Alex Gopher and Kylie Minogue. These self-styled purveyors of electro-house-pop and fans of bananas and champagne have brought a bit of childish glee to the sometimes po-faced world of electro this year. Who else, for instance, would ignore some of the more illicit pleasures offered them backstage in favour of bigging up the free chocolate bars available? It's an attitude personified as much in the cheeky vibe of their massively successful single 'Just Bleep Me' as the funny faces they pull in their publicity shots. Stefan and Olle were ensconced in the studio in Sweden when we caught up with them, and although they seem delighted about what 2010 has brought them, they're promising us 2011 will be even better - "the year of the Dada", they reckon.
