Steve Aoki Announces New Album
‘Kolony’ set to feature host of US rap stars
Major American electronic music artist Steve Aoki has announced the release of his new album, ‘Kolony’, set to hit stores later this year.
The 10 track album features a number of big names from the US rap scene, including Migos, 2Chainz, Lil Yachty, Gucci Mane and Ma$e, as well as help on the production side from Yellow Claw, DVBBS, Bad Royale and Ricky Remedy.
Ahead of the full album launch Aoki, who headlined the Vietnam Electronic Music Weekend in March last year, has released a new single: ‘Nightcall” featuring Lil Yachty and Migos.
Underlining Aoki’s musical evolution away from his former house-based sound, ‘Nightcall’ is a pure trap track, featuring bassy breaks and heavy autotuning on Yachty’s lyrics.
On his website the DJ says pre-orders of Kolony will get Nightcall automatically, as well as ‘Without You’ featuring 2Chainz, which was released back in April.
