Hi All – Firstly, thank you all for the kind words and get well wishes.. has been a big help!
I wanted to keep you posted since I haven’t been at the last few shows.. the surgery was completed last week but there have been some complications since then that have needed me to go back to hospital. I’m back on the mend now, but won’t be able to make the shows next weekend in Toronto, Scottsdale and Vegas. Olle will be coming to all shows and performing a full Dada Life set.

I’ll keep everyone posted as things progress.

- Stefan


We’re sad to inform you that unfortunately due to recent decisions made by the Toronto City Council, we have effectively been forced to have to make the decision that the Dada Land Compound event will not go ahead as planed at the Direct Energy Centre. However we are still going to perform in Toronto on Friday April 25.

Finding a suitable replacement venue for the Dada Land Compound show at such short notice, as you can imagine, was an absolute nightmare! We tried, but nothing was up to par. So… a new event will now take place at SOUND ACADEMY with us performing alongside the scheduled support acts: Adventure Club, Tritonal & Henry Fong, but please note the event will not contain the same elements as a Dada Land Compound show.

Why is that? Well to put it simply, we want to play in Toronto… so we are! The Dada Land Compound shows are special. They require weeks of planning, detailed specifics in terms of the venues, logstics and a certain level of production we’re not prepared to compromise on if we’re calling it something extra special. (aka Dada Land Compound)

All tickets for the Direct Energy Centre show will be honored at the new event at Sound Academy on April 25th and will be subject to the following discounts etc:

Tickets that were originally purchased for more than $99.50 will now have the face value of $99.50. The difference will be automatically refunded to you. In addition ALL TICKET HOLDERS including ones at the new $99.50 price will be refunded 15% of the face value for the original ticket, again these refunds will happen automatically.

Anyone not wishing to attend the new event at Sound Academy can obtain a full refund from point of purchase. The option for a full refund is only available until 1pm EST Monday April 21.

We are working to reschedule a Dada Land Compound show for Ontario ASAP and will post more details when we have them.

If you have any questions please email tickets@ink-00.com

Beer and Apples [APRIL FOOLS]

Update: Apples & Beer? Silly citizens, APRIL FOOLS! We’d never imagine abandoning bananas and champagne!

Citizens of Dada Land,

After careful consideration, we have decided to retire our classic bananas and champagne logo for a more updated look. We considered many options and after much deliberation we have decided to rebrand ourselves to apples and beer. We hope you guys enjoy our new logo as much as we do and we look forward to everything 2014 has in store.

Olle and Stefan

Message From Stefan


We wanted to let everyone know that unfortunately Stefan has had to fly back to Sweden to have some urgent abdominal surgery. It has to be done now to prevent more serious conditions in the future, as of right now we don’t know the recovery time but will have a timeline from the doctors in the coming days and will keep you all posted.

For the upcoming shows this weekend in Miami, Las Vegas and Boise please note that Olle will be coming and playing a full Dada Life show.

TORONTO – We asked, we listened, and we have taken action. It is a proud moment to announce that we are bringing the DADA LAND COMPOUND to Canadada for the first time ever on APRIL 25!

TICKETS ARE ONSALE NOW —-> http://bit.ly/Canadada


Well well well… we didn’t expect to get as many as we did in 24hrs. Over 1,500 demos!!! It’s taken us a while to get through as many as we can. Not possible to go through them all so stay tuned for Round 4. Overall the level of production is really good, less dubstep tracks than the last time we did this. We would say the main tip for people is to simplify ideas in the song.. overall too many ideas in one track. Stick with one good one and expand the idea from there!

If your song is mentioned, please feel free to add a link to it in the comments so people can listen, we didn’t want to offer a download of your tracks unless you were ok with it!

Here are the Round 3 Awards

  • Dada Land Citizen Award goes to: Auratic – The Beast
  • Best Surprise Drop Award goes to: Ayin M – Go High
  • Best Melody Award goes to: John Bauman – The Nerve
  • Best Name Award goes to: BalaclavAntelopes
  • Best Overall Best Track Award goes to: Classic Roots – Coconut Kills
  • See if your track made he cut…here’s as many as we could get through!
