Well shit, if you decide to release a debut album after a hugely successful career already, then this is the way to do it.
After many years of mixing and producing some great dance hits around the world, Steve Aoki has got quite the contact list (enough to make any journalist or high end hooker jealous).
Many of these contacts have lent their skills to Aoki’s first album; the long haired beauty has teamed up with the likes of Rivers Cuomo, Lovefoxx, LMFAO, Wynter Gordon, Zuper Blahq, Travis Barker(Gym Class Heroes) and Kid Cudi but to name a few.
The result is a mix of tracks that seems to cater to a variety of dance fans. For those that enjoy a song that is a little more mainstream charts a la Guetta, there is Aoki’s collaboration with Wynter Gordon, Ladi Dadi; which seems to be a little too radio friendly for hardcore fans. Similarly there is track Come With Me with Polina Goudieva whom sounds scarily like Katy Perry.
For those looking to stray away from the lady vocals, there is Emergency which features Lil John and Chiddy Bang whose smooth rap works incredibly well with the sick beat and of course Lil John antics.
Lastly for the strictly electro fans there is Steve Jobs featuring Angger Dimas, which in a tribute to the man employs video game sounds to accompany the harder dance beat. Basically each of the tracks takes on the flavour of the featured artists so comfort can be found for all.
