Renowned DJ and producer Steve Aoki has unveiled the release date and tracklist (see below) for his latest project. Steve Aoki Presents Kolony is a synthesis between dance party tracks and club bangers, with the Grammy-nominated EDM producer gravitating more toward the hip-hop realm. The album features guest appearances by some of rap’s hottest names including Migos, Lil Yachty, 2 Chainz, Lil Uzi Vert, Gucci Mane and more. Steve Aoki Presents Kolony is due out July 21 via his own Dim Mak Records (pre-order Kolony here).
Aoki spoke about the collaborative spirit of the record in a statement:
“When I was in the studio working on this project or a song with someone that made it to the album, they brought their own crew and I'd turn around and be like, ‘this squad is like a colony,’" explains Aoki of the title. “We're like a colony because it just felt like the energy in the room was more vibrant. It was a lot of energy from people flowing from the studio and I loved that think tank; that group collaboration and spirit.”
Aoki recently debuted Kolony standout track “Night Call” in front of 25,000 people at the JMBLYA festival in Austin, Texas. “Night Call” officially dropped on Friday, June 15. The track features the boys from Migos along with Lil Yachty and was recorded at Migos' studio in Atlanta. You can listen to "Night Call" below.
