Steve Aoki, a Grammy nominated DJ, record producer, and music executive unveils his latest upcoming project Steve Aoki Presents Kolony, which is slick mash-up of EDM and Rap music featuring many of the prominent lyricists we know today.
Kolony is a 10-track album chock-full of A-list appearances from the rap world. ILOVEMAKONNEN, Gucci Mane, T-Pain, 2 Chainz, Lil Uzi Vert, Wale, Ma$e and more make appearances on what’s sure to be some truly lit production.
There’s also a ton of collaboration on the production side, with assists from Yellow Claw, DVBBS, Bad Royale and Ricky Remedy.
“When I was in the studio working on this project or a song with someone that made it to the album, they brought their own crew, and I’d turn around and be like, ‘this squad is like a colony’ ” Aoki explains. “We’re like a colony, because it just felt like the energy in the room was more vibrant. It was a lot of energy from people flowing from the studio, and I love that think tank, that group collaboration, and spirit.”
The project is due for release July 21st through the culmination of Dim Mak Records and Ultra Records, making this project Steve Aoki’s first turn to Hip Hop rap music after his prominent career in EDM or dance music.
