“At this point in my life I no longer care about things that used to be important to me when I was young: fame, extravagant materialism, self-aggrandizement — for when people are murdered for watching a rock band or drawing a cartoon, those superficialities strike me as Theatre of the Absurd. All that matters to me is my spiritual life, my family, love, my creativity, reframing my narrative, friends, and the end of suffering for all beings.” – DaDa NaDa
Written & produced by DaDa NaDa with Universal Music writer Gabe Lopez and remixed by Gaydio DJ Richard Cutmore (five Billboard #1s), the release features club, radio and instrumental mixes, with additional EDM Deep House mixes by American newcomer Mntna.
