In a recent interview with ET, Steve Aoki spoke about his forthcoming album, Neon Future, which is expected to release on Ultra Music this summer.
Fans can expect to see collaborations with the likes of will.i.am, Snoop Dogg, Machine Gun Kelly, Mac Miller, Waka Flocka, and Linkin Park — a strong effort on Aoki’s part to further blur the line between electronic and opposing genres such as rap and rock.
“Whenever I work with different artists I expand as a song writer, as a producer, and I always want to try and find that bridge between my world and their world. And that’s what we did with the Linkin Park collaboration, “A Light That Never Comes.” Find that place between the Linkin Park world and the EDM world,” the Dim Mak head honcho explains.
He continues on to pledge that Neon Future will continue to “break down genres.” Although a daring statement that creates tremendous expectations, Aoki has already given fans a preview of his vision for the future of dance music. Having recently completed his Aokify America Tour with Waka Flocka, Borgore and Pharrell Williams, it’s not too shocking that we will be seeing at least one of these names on Steve’s sophomore album.
