Record producer, DJ and music executive Steve Aoki launches his new track “Without U” off his forthcoming album. The latest single, collaboration with DJ/producer duo DVBBS and featuring 2 Chainz, was recorded in early 2016 after Aoki spoke with the Atlanta rapper for years about a potential collab, resulting in a co-produced banger that Tity Boi recorded separately in his studio.
In his continuing quest to bridge genres, Aoki is set to perform at JMBLYA fest on May 5 & 6 alongside Chance the Rapper, Gucci Mane, Migos, Lil Uzi Vert, 6lack and others. This is all coming off of the back of his pop driven single last December, Aoki‘s uplifting collab with One Direction member Louis Tomlinson“Just Hold On”, which debuted at #1 in 43 countries and has since achieved Gold or Platinum status in 18 countries. Aoki also earned his second Grammy nomination this past year for the Best Music Film category for his Netflix original documentary “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead”, which chronicles his fast-paced life as a DJ/producer by offering a firsthand look into his world. The film debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival last spring to a sold-out audience.

Nina’s writing style is clever and surprising, which makes working on songs exciting and fun. She’s got the best sense of humor and a fun outlook on the world, and I think our song captures that perfectly.” – R3HAB
“I’m so excited to collaborate with R3HAB for the second time after previously hearing him remix my song ‘Somebody Special.’ I wrote ‘Family Values’ on a day off last festival season while sitting on a trampoline with a guitar, and it’s amazing to see where R3HAB has taken it and how it’s transformed since then.” – Nina NesbittSTREAM/DOWNLOAD

Yellow Claw Celebrate Barong Family’s 200th Release With 7-Track EP ‘BF200’
Yellow Claw‘s Barong Family celebrates 6 years and 200 releases with an EP compilation appropriately titled ‘BF200’ which features seven brand new tracks from the brightest names on the label, such as Yellow Claw themselves, Wiwek, Crisis Era, RayRay, GHOSTER, Nonsens, Psycho Boys Club, and more. The Amsterdam-based imprint has become known for its wide range of musical influences and high-tempo BPMs, and “BF200” follows the same vein. Spanning sounds from three continents and even a reworked ’90s classic, “BF200” also has a unique and fantastical backstory. Ever the creative crew, the EP’s accompanying artwork, and bonus audiobook see Barong Family travels across space and time to save their home planet Mother Earth. Head honchos Yellow Claw describe the impetus behind the EP below:
“It has been a wild ride since when we had put out our first release on Barong Family back in 2014. During the past 6 years, we have met many talented artists who wanted to take part in this adventure with us and joined the family. Moksi, RayRay, Wiwek, and more all saw the transition from Barong Family – a music label to Barong Family – a worldwide brand with its own merch lines, writing camps in Asia, documentaries, sold-out tours in North America, own stages at the world’s biggest festivals. 200 releases seem like a big number, and 6 years feel like a very long time, but for us, thanks to what we do and whom we are fortunate to work with, it feels like we are just starting, as our excitement never faded away.” – Yellow Claw
As for the sonic journey of “BF200,” it begins with “I Want It” from Yellow Claw and Wiwek, who deliver epic hip-hop beats to set the tone of the EP. Next up is Canadian duo Crisis Era’s “Funky Pills” for all the old school ravers out there, while DJ Soda and RayRay’s “Obsession” serves up a sneaky dose of hard-hitting bass. Yellow Claw themselves reworked the Tokyo Ghetto Pussy’s 1995 hit “Kiss Your Lips” for the EP, giving the classic a modern dance facelift. GHOSTER employs Nanami’s breathy vocals to deliver a solid mission statement in “Belong,” before Danish threesome Nonsens put the pedal to the metal with “Teaze,” speeding up proceedings with immense 4/4 energy. Finally, all systems go on Psycho Boys Club’s “Break.” Did anyone expect Barong Family to ever take it easy?
