Just hours after Steve Aoki and Linkin Park performed their new collaboration, “A Light That Never Comes” on national TV, Vicetone released their version of the new single with a remix on SoundCloud. Only one year after the dutch duo came to fruition, Ruben and Victor are off to an incredible start, with 5 HypeM #1′s, a 6 week sold out North American tour and performances at Electric Zoo and TomorrowWorld under their belt. Garnering a spot on DJ Mag’s Top 100 at #60, Vicetone’s passion for music drives their success, and this remix is just another example of their uncanny ability to enhance any track. Heightening synths and speeding things up a bit, while still preserving Chester Bennington’s vocals, Vicetone’s adaptation of this already feisty cross-genre collab packs a powerful punch.
Release Date: TBA

It was no surprise when dance music’s resident cake-throwing, champagne-spraying DJ Steve Aoki decided to bring two equally wild names on his Aokify America Tour. It seems like Aoki’s explosive electro house tunes have inspired one supporting artist to create his own dance music inspired works. American rapper Waka Flocka Flame announced interest in creating a full electronic dance music album and confirmed in April that his forthcoming project will be titled Flockaveli Psychotics. Though the album is still in the works, Waka Flocka hints several well-respected producers of dance music will be a part of the album, including Flosstradamus, Diplo and Skrillex. Though tour mate Aoki has yet to be linked to Waka Flocka’s upcoming LP, the rapper shares his admiration for the producer. “Steve Aoki is like the electronic Waka Flocka. He just known for turning up. I feel like he’d do everything I do … It’s amazing, I respect him.” He further explains, ”I wanted to go back to like the essence. I ventured off a lot in my whole career … I’ma show you a different Flockaveli this time. Way more turnt up, different crowds now. I’m touching different genres.”

The show is set to take place at The City, a club in Cancun that’s played host to Alesso, Nicky Romero, R3hab, Avicii, Hardwell, and other big acts in electronic music.

Recently, The City Nightclub, a popular live music venue in Cancun, Mexico, has made it seem as if the long-haired DJ plans to celebrate the new year with a whole lot of sand and sunshine. Taking to Twitter, the nightclub revealed Steve Aoki’s presence in the tropical peninsula for the holiday.

2013′s two weeks of Halloween festivities have officially come to a close, and for New York City the spooky celebrations ended with a bang at Pier 94. With the help of the creators of Pacha NYC, RPM Events, one of Manhattan’s greatest concert venues morphed into an eerie electronic music powerhouse right along the Hudson River for Steve Aoki‘s Aokify America tour. Aside from the Dim Mak label head himself, the NYC stop featured Rune RK, Borgore, Waka Flocka Flame and special guest Pharrell Williams for two back-to-back nights of celebration and big room beats.
The Aokify crew performed Friday night at Hammerstein Ballroom, but Saturday’s show had double the space, which meant double the noise, cake, champagne and chaos. Kicking things off at 9 pm, Denmark’s own Rune RK opened the show. During the set Rune and Aoki dropped their brand new collab, “Bring You To Life (Transcend),” which set the tone for a night of insanity. The crowd drove towards the stage in masses, some decked out in head-to-toe body suits, others in neon paint and Halloween attire, and all with the grins of some very excited EDM fans.
Acting as the first single for Flux Pavillion‘s upcoming Freeway EP, “Steve French” is an energetic track that serves as a welcome change for the English dubstep star. Flux tapped American house hero Steve Aoki for assistance on the blood-pressure raising track, which proved wise as their respective sounds intertwine to create an intense-yet-euphonious mix that will certainly be a club-mainstay for the winter months. Releasing on Circus and Big Beat, look for “Steve French” to diversify the Beatport top ten. The Freeway EP releases November 11th, and while we are eager to see if the rest of the Flux’s new material follows suit.
