Steve Aoki & k?d bring it back to the old school days of rave on their 170 BPM anthem “BIB.” Pulsating low ends spliced up with hoovers and rolling snares ignite a sonic headrush of pure hardcore madness as Aoki and friends continue on their ‘Rave Royale.’ “BIB” follows Aoki’s acclaimed Timmy Trumpet collaboration “Tarantino (feat. STARX).” Both singles are part of his upcoming six-track rave EP, 6OKI – Rave Royale, out January 22 via Dim Mak.
Steve Aoki says, “My 6OKI – Rave Royale EP campaign continues with the second single; this one is with k?d and we are calling it ‘BIB.’ I’ve been a fan of k?d for a while, as I really think he is making some of the most exciting hard dance music in the world right now. ‘BIB’ pulsates with so much energy from the jump, that k?d and I were literally jumping up and down over FaceTime while making this track. We hope you all can feel that same energy too as we proceed with our Rave Royale!”
k?d adds, “Steve and I have been talking about collabing for a long time. We did a tour run together in Europe and wanted to make something that would go off live.”
Each 6OKI track has its own dynamic animated music video, following Aoki and his collaborators as they fight villains throughout the “Isle of Rave.” Their end goal? To reach the 6OKI Rave Arena in the middle of the island before the doors close forever. Not making it on time means eternal damnation and, even worse, no more raves.
Directed by Roland de Keizer from PitchParrot Studios, the official “BIB” video sees Team 6OKI (Aoki and k?d) face off against Colonel Apocalypse in one of the six maps on the Isle of Rave: the Jungle battlezone. Facing a slew of obstacles, including a steep waterfall drop, swampy terrain, and flaming coconuts, team 6OKI ultimately prevails. The duo has a proper celebratory rave coinciding with the end of the track before a helicopter picks up Aoki to take him to his next battle.
