Grammy-nominated DJ/producer, Steve Aoki, is getting ready to launch his upcoming album, Kolony, on July 21. As he performs around the world, the king of caking has been teasing fans with sneak peeks with tracks from his new project.
Aoki recently make a stop in Miami at club Story on June 30 and he had the crowd going with tracks from his upcoming album such as “Without You,” and his recently released single, “LIT,” with Yellow Claw featuring Gucci Mane and T-Pain. The chorus for “LIT” features T-Pain invoking Queen’s “We Are The Champions” and Gucci Mane rounds it out with a verse.
Story, which is located in South Beach, was packed from the front to the back with fans jumping and singing along to the lyrics of Aoki’s tracks such as “Just Hold On” featuring Louis Tomlinson and “Turbulence.”
It wouldn’t be a Steve Aoki party without a lot of cake! The DJ smacked six lucky fans in the face with a large sheet of vanilla cake while his popular track, “Cake Face” played.
Aoki released his first single “Without U” with DVBBS featuring 2 Chainz from his upcoming album. Another track called “Night Call” captured the audience’s attention with rap’s hottest trio Migos featuring Lil Yachty, which is also featured on Kolony. The album is an amalgamation of party-cranking tracks that stretch across the boundaries between EDM and rap music, landing on something in between and adding supplemental flavor.
This project marks Aoki’s first full turn into rap music, with nearly 10 years of hip-hop collaborations, which he describes as “bridging the gap” between genres.
