Dada Life Donates Bananas to Los Angeles Food Pantry, Attempts New Guinness World Record
Bananas and champagne have long been associated with Swedish producer duo, Dada Life. Maybe it's because their high-energy DJ sets often leave people in need of some potassium and a glass of bubbly. From the start, bananas have been part of Olle Cornéer and Stefan Engbloom’s vision for Dada Life, as the yellow fruit is on their logo, an integral part of their sets, and plays a role in a number of their tracks. Now, Cornéer and Engbloom are using their banana brand to give back to the community. The duo surprised the Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles’ SOVA Community Food and Resource Program food pantry with 2,500 bananas on May 19th.
In an unexpected, but welcome, act of charity, Cornéer and Engbloom took to Los Angeles to give back to the community, ahead of their show, “Dada Land: The Voyage,” at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino. Dada Life introduced “The Voyage” in 2014, creating a carnival-like experience for concert-goers with camping, fun activities, a hot air balloon arrival, and performances by Madeon, Mercer, Oliver Heldens and more, sandwiched between two performances by Dada Life themselves.
In the second edition of “The Voyage,” Dada Life returns with a new goal: To set the Guinness World Record for largest amount of people dressed in a banana suit. While this may seem like a tall task for dance music producers, Cornéer and Engbloom are well-versed in setting world records, as they are broke the Guinness World Record for world’s largest pillow fight with over 3,500 participants at their Dada Life Compound show in Chicago in 2013.
