FANS VOTE AOKI FOR DJ TIMES’ ‘AMERICA’S BEST DJ 2015’
Over the last year, international DJ and music producer STEVE AOKI has been releasing a steady stream of music, remixes and videos as part of his NEON FUTURE I and II double-album. Now, AOKI is amassing both albums into a special deluxe package. NEON FUTURE ODYSSEY will be released October 2 via Dim Mak/Ultra Music. Along with the albums, it will include six bonus tracks–collaborations with Headhunterz, Borgore and Marnik, a brand new song “Titanic” (infamously debuted at Tomorrowland this past July), his popular single “Cake Face” and a brand new version of his song with Moxie “I Love It When You Cry” entitled the Steve Aoki Es Vedra remix.
In anticipation of his NEON FUTURE ODYSSEY release, AOKI has debuted the new single with Headhunterz “The Power of Now.” The hard-slinging track-titled after Eckhart Tolle‘s popular book “The Power Of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment” in keeping with the project’s futuristic theme–fuses together the distinctive studio prowess of these two artists for a heavy dance floor banger.
