Today, Steve Aoki announced the release of his special “Darker Than The Light That Never Bleeds” (Chester Forever Steve Aoki Remix). The song is a mash up of “Darker Than Blood” and “A Light That Never Comes,” two songs he created with Linkin Park. Steve made the mash up as his tribute to his late friend Chester Bennington. The remix is available now with net proceeds from the track being donated in Chester’s name to Music For Relief’s One More Light fund.

“Chester Bennington was my favorite singer of all time. I feel so incredibly honored to not only have worked with him on these two songs, but am so deeply touched to have gotten to know him as a friend. I’m still shattered by this tragic loss. It’s hard to realize that he is not coming back. Chester was such an invaluable human being that bled out the pain and passion through Linkin Park, touching so many people’s lives. He helped so many people that have felt these similar feelings around the world scream out and feel like they are not alone. Life can be incredibly trying and tough. Nothing can bring more consolation than knowing that there are others going through this same pain. Chester was such a beautiful human being. I will never forget our conversations and moments shared together in the studio, on the stage, and in life. We now have Chester in our hearts and minds forever. Keep his inspiration and passion alive and play Linkin Park fucking loud. Scream the lyrics fucking loud. Live in these moments fucking loud. I miss you dear friend. You are in our hearts and minds forever. Chester Forever.” – Steve Aoki
