NO MORE BANANAS? DADA LIFE USE GUINNESS WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT TO HIGHLIGHT LOOMING FRUIT CRISIS

bananas_dada_life

Bananas make up over half of all fresh produce bought in America – but if a deadly virus currently raging through Asia and now in parts of Africa makes its way over to South and Central America, everyone’s favourite yellow fruit could be in real danger.

“We use bananas for everything, seriously,” says Olle Corneer, one half of world famous Swedish electro superstars Dada Life. “They’re on our rider, our fans come to gigs dressed as them, they’ve even on our logo. Imagine if we can’t get hold of them any more, it’s a crazy thought.”

Bananas will be the overriding theme of the Swedes’ second official GUINNESS WORLD RECORD attempt when they host their own festival, The Voyage, at the San Manuel Amphitheatre in San Bernadino, California, on July 18TH. Looking to break the record for Most People Dressed As Fruit – obviously bananas – Dada Life hope that behind all the fun, there will be a more serious message.

BUY TICKETS TO THE VOYAGE 2015

“Looking after banana farmers is one way that we can help them protect their crops against the disease,” Olle’s partner Stefan Engblom continued. “At the moment they don’t get much money, which means that they can’t properly fight the spread of the Tropical Race 4 disease.

“We decided to partner with Fair Trade USA because they make sure that farmers get more money to invest in their crops and in their communities. All the bananas we use at our shows – and it’s a lot for two guys – they’ll all have to carry the Fair Trade Certified sticker. We want to spread the word as well, get our fans involved, make sure that they start looking out for Fair Trade bananas too.”

“The Fair Trade Certified logo signifies that your banana was grown according to strict social and environmental standards, and that farmers earned additional money for their hard work,” said Jenna Larson, spokeswoman for Fair Trade USA, the leading certifer of Fair Trade products in North America. “We’re honored to work with Dada Life to educate fans about the power of their purchase, and the Fair Trade farmers behind the peel.”

Banana Facts:

Bananas make up over 50% of America’s fresh fruit consumption
The annual global banana industry is worth $44.1 billion
Bananas are the most traded fruit worldwide, and the fifth most traded agricultural product
The US imports approximately 31% of all bananas traded internationally, with the EU importing another 28% – well over half of all worldwide imports
Bananas are a key food staple for over 400 million people on the planet
70% of the world’s bananas are grown in South and Central America
Bananas are currently under threat from the deadly Tropical Race 4 disease which has ravaged farms in Asia and more recently in Africa – qz.com/164029/tropical-race-4-global-banana-industry-is-killing-the-worlds-favorite-fruit/

Dada Life – One Last Night On Earth

With their festival The Voyage now just weeks away, Swedish maestros Dada Life kick the anticipation up a gear with the release of their brand new single ‘One Last Night On Earth’.

A battle cry to dance floor action from the two Swedes, ‘One Last Night On Earth’ sees Olle Corneer and Stefan Engblom traverse brilliantly between the track’s ethereal, ‘hands in the air’ moments and the more fist-pumping, adrenalin-inducing sections. The pair gradually crank the tension up, giving the vocal line and full-bodied piano chords enough breathing room to lay the foundation for an increase in momentum, before exploding through into the break down in typical Dada Life fashion.

Accompanying the single comes the official video. Viewers are drawn into the dramatic end of planet Earth, a massive asteroid looming ominously on the horizon just hours from destroying everything we’ve ever known. While adults lose it or sit defeated in front of the TV news reels, it’s clear that Citizens of Dada Land will only ever go out with a defiant bang, seizing those last precious moments, living it the only way they know how, on their last night on earth.

Night Gestalt releases exquisite debut album ‘One’ – out now

Better known to millions of EDM fans around the world as one half of pioneering Swedish electronic act Dada Life, Olle Cornéer today embarks on a separate, very different voyage of musical discovery as his darker alter ego, Night Gestalt.

A far cry from the thundering beeps and bleeps of traditional Dada Life production work, Night Gestalt long player ‘One’ is instead a highly personal journey that plunges deep into the experimental depths of sound.

Unapologetically conceptual, Cornéer’s lyrics outline the story of a doomed spaceship called ‘One’, sent out from earth with 7000 souls on board to find an alternative planet to our dying one.

Losing control of the central computer and plummeting straight into the void, the album deals with the desperate rise of religious sects, the split between those who invest their energy in the hope of salvation and those who accept that there is none, and finally the overriding decision of ‘SHE’, the ship’s computer, that this is the end.

“I wrote these songs in a small country house on an island in Sweden in the summer a few years ago,” Cornéer explains. “It was a really creative period; all of them were finished in the span of a few days. Then I basically left them on the computer for a year or two – not really knowing what to do with them.”

Lying relatively untouched, it wasn’t until last year when Cornéer received the news he had been diagnosed with cancer that ‘One’ once again saw the light of day. “(That was when) I really felt the urge to start to release other music than Dada Life. Music has mattered my whole life, but being sick was really a wake up call on how much it still matters. Somehow the darkness of the Night Gestalt songs resonated with how I felt. Without sounding too dramatic, it was like I was staring at the end, and then realizing I’ve written a whole album about the same thing.”

Working solely within the realms of arpeggios and vocals, ‘One’ is heavily influenced by contemporary composers like Arvo Pärt, John Luther Adams and Steve Reich. “I wanted to do something really clear and simple,” Cornéer goes on. “A lot of music is trying to do everything. It’s loud, it’s soft, it’s fast, it’s slow. With this music I just wanted to do one thing. Arvo Pärt’s music is all about clarity and union and that’s what I wanted to do too. I love the arpeggio because it’s so simple – it’s only one note at a time, but the resulting pattern of notes creates melodies, rhythm and structure, all from those simple notes. The sum is bigger than the parts.”

Also prevalent in Cornéer’s soundscape are works by electronic artists such as Aphex Twin and Black Dog. “Making this music was a way for me to go back to that music,” said Cornéer, “not creating 90’s music but rather try to get the same feelings I got when I was young and lying in my dark room listening to Black Dog in my headphones.”

Certainly a return to his earlier influences but without a doubt pushing the future boundaries of his own sound, ‘One’ is out now for worldwide release, including a limited edition press of only 100 vinyl albums and an extremely exclusive run of ten numbered hardback books including an MP3/WAV version of the album.
