Steve Aoki has reportedly used a yet-to-be-titled collaboration with Hardwell as an intro track during recent live dates. First recorded during Aoki’s 11th February performance in Philadelphia, PA, few of the single’s details have been confirmed by either team.
“This is my new track with Hardwell!” exclaimed the polarizing dance music figure at the 2:10 mark of the live recording. Lacking further dialogue from the DJ/producer and any significant track vocal, the single’s title remains unknown.
Secret Solstice has released its first wave of acts including Steve Aoki, Charlotte de Witte, Skream and more, with the festival set to kick off from 21st to 24th June in Reykjavik, Iceland.
Now in its fifth year, the festival will feature local and international artists including Fools Gold boss A-trak, Romanian minimal techno trio [a:rpia:r] (Petre Inspirescu, Raresh, Rhadoo) and legendary UK selector Artwork to name a few.
Steve Aoki is set to be immortalised in wax next month, when the famous EDM DJ/producer’s likeness is added to Madame Tussauds’ Las Vegas museum.
“This whole process has been super exciting so far, Madame Tussauds and I are both fun, outlandish, and all about delivering an unforgettable experience,” Aoki said.
“I can’t wait to see fans get behind the decks and have some fun with my first ever wax figure.”
Steve Aoki used to play in hardcore punk bands, and now he’s one of the biggest names in international dance music. The EDM star gradually rose to prominence throughout the noughties, having started his now legendary record label and event series Dim Mak in 1996.
Steve Aoki used some recent interview time to promote more inclusiveness across clubland and the festival landscape. The Dim Mak label founder called on male DJs to “step aside to make room for women DJs and women producers on festivals.”
