Steve Aoki Brings the Rave Home on “6OKI – Rave Royale” EP

Steve Aoki pays homage to his club and festival roots with his Dim Mak EP, 6OKI – Rave Royale. The EP includes six hard-hitting collaborations with Timmy Trumpet, k?d, Gammer, Brennan Heart, Ben Nicky, and Hasse de Moor giving each song its own fresh sound. Whether it is “BIB’s” pulsating low-ends, drilling synths on “Like It Like That (feat. Spyro & MYLKI),” eccentric percussion throughout “Incoming,” invigorating wubs on “Mind Control,” explosive melodies via “Close to You (feat. PollyAnna),” or a brassy revamp of Pulp Fiction’s famous guitar riff on “Tarantino (feat. STARX),” Aoki and his collaborators deliver on each track. The sonic diversity and uplifting energy of 6OKI creates a much needed out-of-body experience for listeners, transporting them as close to a Rave Royale as possible.

With live music currently on pause, Aoki brings the rave to fans at home via his latest body of work. While his previous 4OKI EP explored deeper club-focused house music, and 5OKI encompassed big room electro sounds, 6OKI sees Steve go all out with friends across six high-energy hard dance / hardstyle-leaning anthems. Aoki’s Brennan Heart collaboration “Close to You (ft. PollyAnna),” provides a perfect focal point for the EP. The feel-good hardstyle-meets-EDM track takes listeners on a sonic rollercoaster, through a variety of drops and a whole lot of emotion.
