Very few people have heard of Bobby Puma, but word is he's one of dance music's hidden gems. Believe it or not, the Bay Area native has been ghost producing for the last 5 years, under the wings of DJ Mag Top 100-worthy artists. Today, however, Puma is officially introducing himself to the world in presenting his very first remix of none other than Dada Life's latest production, "Born To Rage." Although he is fresh onto the scene, the experience Bobby has gained as a DJ behind closed doors are evident in his electro-packed rendition of the original. With a steady percussive buildup leading into deeper, stabbing electro synths, Puma's remix is invigorating and refreshing. Download his remix below, which Puma is giving away to fans for free.
This past Thursday, we took a brief road trip up to Philadelphia only to find ourselves in the Dada Land Compound featuring the one and only, Dada Life. One of the supporting acts included Florida native Henry Fong, and we spoke to him after his set to discuss his new track, "Hot Steppa" (see below), how he got started on his career, and what it's been like traveling the country to perform with Dada Life. We saw a great deal of potential in Henry particularly during his set, and his blazing, electro take on Zedd's "Stay The Night" (see below) further confirms this reality.
Can you tell us a little about your new track, “Hot Steppa”?

As many people look back at Electric Zoo this weekend, the emotions widely vary. Between the heartbreaking reasons behind the disappointing and contentious cancellation of Day 3, and the ongoing debate as to whether or not the right decision was made, it can be easy to look past all the good that happened this weekend. With that being said, we should not ignore what has occurred, but learn from it. Instead of thinking about what we missed out on, let’s remember what we experienced. Day 2 of Electric Zoo brought together thousands of electronic dance music listeners from all over the world to Randall’s Island for a day packed with performances from our favorite artists. Let us reflect on these positive moments that have created beautiful memories that we should not allow to be overshadowed by the negative.
Electric Zoo makes its triumphant return to its original location, NYC's Randall’s Island Park this Labor Day Weekend (August 30-September 1st) for three days of the world's best in electronic music. To celebrate E Zoo’s fifth anniversary there will be two main stages on expanded festival grounds—which can only mean more confetti, more music, and more fun. The two stages, designated Main Stage West and Main Stage East, will have headliners such as Avicii, Knife Party, Dada Life, David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, and Laidback Luke and others yet to be announced. This year there will be a total of five stages in addition to the two main stages for all you zoo animals out there to choose from.
The Fall 2012 phase of Bounce Music Festival is about to get in gear to rock a city near you. Hosting global superstar DJs, this year's festival welcomes headliners Alesso, Martin Solveig, Hardwell, Dada Life, Rusko, and Borgore.
Bounce kicks off on Friday, Oct. 26 in Raleigh, North Carolina with Swedish sensation, Alesso at the Longbranch of Raleigh. A second date on Oct. 26 will feature French producer Martin Solveig, Dutch master Hardwell, Deniz Koyu and Tim Mason at the Mesa Amphitheater in Mesa, Arizona. On Wednesday October 31st, Dada Life will be giving champagne showers at Pic-A-Chic Farms along with Borgore. The UK dubstep leader Rusko will drop the bass at the Limelight in Nashville, Tennessee as the last date of the tour on Nov. 19th.
Our favorite wild and crazy DJ duo, Dada Life, has released the date for their upcoming album, "The Rules Of Dada." Set to be released on October 16 featuring eleven tracks including the already popular "Kick Out The Epic Motherf*cker," and "Rolling Stones T-Shirt," two tracks we can't get enough of as well as their awesome videos.
A mainstay in the global EDM scene for several years now, Dada Life has consistently proved a popular force on tour and at festivals. With their rock n’ roll attitude and their raucous energy, the two Swedes have captivated audiences across the world.
Their newest tour, the Dada Land Fall Tour, will see the duo play clubs and arenas in over 30 major cities in both the United States and Canada; with more dates to be announced soon. The two-month adventure will be Dada Life’s biggest tour to date, particularly given the size of some venues they will be playing. As usual expect lots of Champagne and lots of bananas as Dada Life tears up dance floors across North America with their signature hard hitting electro sound.
