Stefan and Olle have a bone to pick with their manager. “We have the hardest boss ever. We've been locked up in the studio for the last two or three weeks,” Olle says. It's just as well, though - they've got singles and remixes they're working on and stuff to be done, so he's clearly on the right track, cracking the whip over this hilarious duo. Their return to the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas this year confirmed that they're on the right track with their cabaret-esque, quirky and larger-than-life performances. “We had a 35-piece marching band come out onto the stage playing our 'White Noise Red Meat',” explained Olle. “That was a fun moment to see people's reactions!” Famous for rocking up on stage with huge inflatable bananas and champagne bottles, their take on a DJ set is to give something different and unexpected back to the crowds. Dada Life wouldn't be drawn on their future antics; they tend to be aloof about pre-planning, although their schedule does include the release of a few singles and remixes that they've given their unique twist to. Their ability to see the fun side in everything is an enviable one, although Olle disagrees. “We fight a lot, stuff that a lot of people would think is stupid. It could just be about a little space between two notes. We could discuss that forever.
