We knew Steve Aoki Dabbled in Hip-Hop with the many features he’s had from rappers and the fact that one of his greatest hits is a remix of Kid Cudi. The logical next step for this producer is a full on Hip Hop LP…indeed, this is what Aoki is doing with his next release “Kolony.”. He talked about the dawning of this new project with on a recent press release:
“When I was in the studio working on this project or a song with someone that made it to the album, they brought their own crew, and I’d turn around and be like, ‘this squad is like a colony. We’re like a colony, because it just felt like the energy in the room was more vibrant. It was a lot of energy from people flowing from the studio, and I loved that think tank, that group collaboration, and spirit.”
What do you think of this new direction? Let us know on Twitter @globaldanceelec.
The album will be released on July 21, and is available for pre-order.
