Steve Aoki has just released what many have been waiting for: his new album. He is full of energy and good vibes to dance all night long with the rhythms of the DJ. In addition, this new release has great collaborations such as Kane Brown, Goody Grace, Bryce Vine or Lil Xan, who have managed, together with the author, to make it a unique and very special album for the artist’s followers.
“This is a fun record that takes you back to when you were a kid in high school and full of aspirations,” explains Aoki. “It’s something a lot of kids can relate to. Both MOD SUN and Global Dan also have those personalities, which makes it a delirium”, he ends by defining.
On this record, Steve taps into the angst, anxiety, and pent-up energy he felt during the pandemic and delivers a dynamic soundtrack to what the new normal has become. The songs are based on the author’s history with alternative rock bands and adopt contemporary musical trends such as Latin pop, but always with his distinctive and characteristic EDM aesthetic.
“Music is a fabric that connects this universe that I’m creating,” explains Aoki. “This album tells a fantastic story, but it’s also about breaking free from restrictions. I went straight back to my roots: that raw rock energy that became the foundation. From there, I started exploring everything and it sprouted into so many different genres.”
Throughout the themes five chapters are comprised, each detailing a different mythological faction. The album opens the door for fans to enter a world that mixes music with a collectible trading card game co-created with MetaZoo Games, which Steve co-founded and released in March 2021.
To celebrate the release, the artist has shared a new single, ‘Movie Star’ with MOD SUN and Global Dan. The single is accompanied by a music video where the trio transforms a normal afternoon at a California high school into an impromptu party. Now we just have to enjoy all the releases that Steve Aoki has made so that we start the weekend with more enthusiasm than ever.
