Iconic Swedish Duo Dada Life and Breakout Chinese Producer DEXTER KING Team Up For Future Rave Single “Take Me Into Space” on Monstercat 

Sensational dance duo Dada Life made their Monstercat debut today, joining forces with Chinese electronic prodigy DEXTER KING for their anticipated collaborative single, “Take Me Into Space.” Marking the first release for Dada Life outside of their own imprint since launching in 2021, the record sees DEXTER KING step into uncharted territory beyond his signature melodic soundscapes. Injected with heavy future rave stylings blending adrenaline-pumping buildups and tech-house driven kicks, “Take Me Into Space” shows a darker side to the trio. While Dada Life rarely team up with other artists on their releases, the synergy with DEXTER KING was undeniable, making for a dynamic start to 2023.

Dada Life shares, “The aim with this song was to make something that could shatter the Earth and lift you to the sky like a rocket, because when that happens, you can’t stop smiling.”

DEXTER KING adds, “If life is as short as a song, we shall waste no time on earth.”

Upon launching their label with Revealed Recordings in 2021, Dada Life has released Crash & Smile compilations every month, showcasing rising artists across the scene. In collaborating with DEXTER KING, they continue to highlight their passion for giving a platform to promising acts. Renowned for their humourous and energetic live performances around the globe, fans can look forward to their upcoming set at Miami’s Ultra Musical Festival in 2023. The duo are also lauded for their technical skill sets, developing their own popular plug-ins such as the Sausage Fattener and Endless Smile, used by Axwell, Zedd, Steve Angello, and more.

The last two years have seen DEXTER on a meteoric rise in China’s electronic music scene, earning a spot on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs in 2021. His work with Monstercat has landed him syncs with video games such as Rocket League, Fortnite, and Forza, in addition to his debut on the Chinese singing competition series, E-POP OF CHINA. Up until the lockdown, DEXTER brought his live show across the country, performing at festivals like Waterworld and International Sanya Music Festival.

Dada Life Bio 

Since starting in 2006, the DJ duo Dada Life has only had one aim: to make people smile more. To help them achieve this, they have released music that makes you feel like you’re crashing into a wall, have broken two Guinness World Records (the biggest pillow fight in the world with 5000 pillows!), and toured the world. In the universe they have created – Dada Land – every night feels like a kids’ birthday party spinning out of control.

DEXTER KING Bio 

As one of the first to break into China’s budding EDM culture, DEXTER’s undying commitment to creativity continues to solidify his role as a leading artist in the electronic music landscape in Asia. Having excelled at piano, guitar, saxophone and drums at a very young age, his finely tuned ear for track selection and innate musical ability quickly translated into China-wide performances.

Upon graduating in 2012, DEXTER began residencies at some of the most prominent venues in China, where he opened for high profile acts such as Zedd, Steve Aoki, Diplo, and R3hab to name a few, and soon became known as a pioneer of EDM in the early days of China’s dance music boom. In the following years, his hallmark appearances at major festivals in China and sell-out clubs saw him stun audiences across the country, positioning him as a new-wave tastemaker paving the way at the forefront of China’s music scene. In 2015, DEXTER KING was the first ever Chinese act to tour in The Netherlands. By 2019, he had toured 200+ club shows, 60 festivals, and made history by becoming the 1st Chinese artist signed to Monstercat – a Canadian independent electronic dance music record label based in Vancouver.

DEXTER KING found new inspiration and a surge of creativity to create his latest body of music, trademarked by quintessential pop focused bangers. His influences are vast, from the legacy of Avicii, the distinct house anthems of Daft Punk, to Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli soundtracks, he will go on pushing boundaries with consistency and quality, setting high standards for Chinese dance music and live performances.
