Dim Mak Records head honcho Steve Aoki will be dropping three new releases over three consecutive weeks this January. The 3Oki campaign will be full of unreleased material and profile a wide spectrum of genres. To kick things off a remix EP of Aoki and Linkin Park’s “A Light That Never Comes,” will be released January 21st, followed by a collaboration with Coone entitled “Can’t Stop The Swag” on January 28th, and finally Steve Aoki & Autoerotique Vs. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike with “Feedback” on February 7th.
From the official press release:
On the A LIGHT THAT NEVER COMES (Remixes) EP, Aoki and Linkin Park enlist a diverse pool of producers, featuring renditions from legendary producer Rick Rubin, Vicetone, Angger Dimas, Coone, as well as Aoki’s personal favorite remix from twoloud. The EP takes the original electro/rock hybrid and flips it into the worlds of dubstep, house, hardstyle, and beyond. The package also includes a remix from producer Brian Yates, the grand prize winner of a recent “A Light That Never Comes” remix contest from Indaba Music and Microsoft Surface.
Aoki then teams up with Coone, Dim Mak’s first-ever hardstyle artist, to unleash their new collaboration “Can’t Stop The Swag.” The single is Aoki’s first foray into the burgeoning hardstyle movement and along with celebrated hardstyle producer Coone, the track mixes Aoki’s house production with Coone’s hardstyle kicks and aggressiveness. “Can’t Stop The Swag” underlines Aoki’s and Dim Mak’s takeover of the hardstyle scene.
Closing out 3OKI, new track “Feedback” brings together the supergroup of Aoki, Autoerotique, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, who are dominating the Beatport charts with their Tomorrowland Remix with Ummet Ozcan of Fatboy Slim’s “Eat Sleep Rave Repeat” and topped the charts with “Ocarina (The TomorrowWorld Anthem) feat. Wolfpack” and “Chattahoochee (The Tomorrowland Anthem).”“Feedback”—debuted in the official Tomorrowland after movie—masterfully combines the production prowess of each individual artist into one bass-heavy anthem: Aoki pumping the electro house intensity, Autoerotique blaring the bass, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike bringing the big room house sound.
