Recently, the internet has been abuzz with a scandal involving EDM's favorite bananas in pyjamas, otherwise known as Dada Life. A profile has emerged on both Facebook and Twitter under the name "Dada Death," threatening to release tons of unreleased tracks and content.
Already, they have released two separate tracks, including an "improved" version of "Tonight We're Kids Again," which have since been removed from SoundCloud, although the posts with the inactive links can still be found on their Facebook and Twitter. You can still listen to "Dada Death's" version of "Tonight We're Kids Again" below:
You see, back in December, Dada Life posted about losing a laptop in Stockholm.
Two days ago, "Dada Death" posted a picture of the laptop in question, tagging Dada Life in the post and asking, "Look familiar?"
However, many are accusing Dada Life of concocting the scheme themselves. Coincidentally, the first post made by "Dada Death" happens to be the very same day of the lost bag post, only mere hours beforehand.
This gives rise to suspicion, as it seems unlikely that if their bag was taken, the thief would not only immediately know that the bag belonged to one of the members of Dada Life, but would be so cruel as to intend to blackmail them with their stolen content. Not to mention, MacBooks have an app via Find My iPhone where you can track your devices on a GPS signal. You would think that these electronic artists would be tech-savvy enough to track the stolen laptop, or at least have connections with someone on a team of tech professionals to help them. If it actually is a publicity stunt, it's surely working, as all of the posts on "Dada Death's" profile are quickly flooding with comments, garnering the attention of many. If the scandal is real, then it is undeniably unfortunate that Dada Life is having to deal with this on top of Olle Corneer's recent battle with cancer, and we would hope that their fans would have their support. Dada Life made another post today on their Facebook saying the police are getting involved and are on the hunt for the thief, and chances are if it actually were a publicity stunt, the police would not have been contacted. Regardless, we anticipate to see where the drama leads next!
