Exclusive Steve Aoki Interview On Beatport

Steve Aoki, the man known for always being on tour and recent Grammy nominee sat down with Beatport to talk about his latest release, It’s The End Of The World As We Know It. Steve goes in depth about the concept behind the EP’s theme as well as the production process of working with Angger Dimas, Dan Sena, and Rune RK. Not only does the interview touch base on the new EP it also dives into Steve’s upcoming projects for 2013. You can read the full interview and purchase todays release on Beatport.

[hr]

Do you buy into any of the conspiracy theories about doomsday, or is the title of your new EP, It’s the End of the World As We Know It, your way of having fun with it?

I love conspiracy theories. I think they are fun. It’s fun to think of all these crazy things that might happen. It’s part of the adventure—you’re supposed to take it to these wild places. If it’s the end of the world, let’s go out with a bang, you know. That’s the point. We’re only here for so long, so make the most of your life.

And for the album?

Throughout the year, I’ve been touring like crazy, so I haven’t had too much time to sit down in my own studio and come up with a major concept, so that’s why I was like, okay, it’s the end of the world, 2012, let’s put these three songs together. It’s three different collaborations I did with different producers, so I figured we’ll pack it all together. I produced them at different times throughout the year, so there were different influences and sounds in each song.

What was it like collaborating with different people for each track? Can you break down each one for us?

The first song I did with Annger Dimas; I always work together with this guy. He’s one of my really good friends, and we have really great chemistry working together in the studio. I got Kay (of My Name Is Kay) on that record to amp it up a bit more and make it a bit more vocal obviously. I’ve been dropping that record since Ultra. That’s where I debuted the song, and now it’s finally coming out.

As far as “Omega,” we got Dan Sena on it and we got Miss Palmer, who also sang on “No Beef,” and it’s one of the more commercial-sounding records and I’m really happy with that one.

“Transcend” is a record I started with Rune RK actually over a year ago. We were in the studio together, in the UK, and we rented a studio out there to do some work together. The song transformed and transcended into the song it became, so that’s why it’s called “Transcend.”

Singularity – PeaceTreaty’s ‘In Time’ Beatport Play Contest Winner!

December 11, 2012 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , , , , ,

When it came to remixing PeaceTreaty’s “In Time,” the LA-based producer known as Singularity proved to be the best at taking up the task, nabbing the DCAM: Synth Squad and Tremor soft-synths from FXpansion, $500 worth of gear from Ambig, a pair of Sabre sunglasses, a year-long subscription to Future Music and Computer Music magazines, and the Sounds To Sample Elements Library. But, most importantly of all, Singularity’s version of the song is now set to appear on a forthcoming remix collection from Dim Mak.

“I’m just really glad everyone enjoyed the track as much as I enjoyed making it,” says the SoCal producer. Given the response his rework got, it’s safe to say he had a pretty damn good time making this one.

Congrats again to Singularity, and all other the 350+ plus contestants!!! We’re blown away with all the support. You’ve all done an amazing job with this single.

Out Now: Robert Raimon Roy – Le Tigre Blanc

December 11, 2012 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , ,

[lightbox url=”http://itun.es/i6Dz3kV” width=”1000″ height=”600″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox] [lightbox url=”http://btprt.dj/YWJX8u” width=”1000″ height=”600″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox] [lightbox url=”http://spoti.fi/TROtRq” width=”1000″ height=”600″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox] [lightbox url=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/videoseries?list=PLP3NmVJWzd3OxQiHkVsegVaO1guwb1Qt3&hl=en_US” width=”960″ height=”540″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox]

Le Tigre Blanc is an adventurous pop album that deforms and combines several epochs of rap, R&B, jazz, and rock music, from James Brown-esque grunts and screams, to 90’s New Jack Swing, to modern trap, and even gospel hymns; it is a meta-work of the Internet era, a coming-of-age tale for the posthuman.

Not holding back while sticking to the same old formula, StereoHeroes raise the bar even more here, with two tracks that hit you with everything and the kitchen sink. Opening track ‘Crystal’ arched synths and bent out of your shape beats will reign supreme at the peak of night, while it’s close cousin ‘Polaris’ sees StereoHeroes elevate their techno fused electro to a higher level of existence, unparalleled to anything else out there… mental yet ridiculously hypnotic.

Revolvr’s and Lea Luna’s exciting collaborative effort – a three song EP delivers a party-fuelled, high energy, enticing lyrically-vocal filled, bass-heavy EP aimed directly at the big room dance floor; which is exactly where you’ll be hearing it.

The three songs in this collection, each with their own identity, takes listeners on a journey from progressive melodies and Lea Luna’s ethereal vocals to monstrous drops, explosive dubstep basslines and synths, and ends with a four on the floor jackin electro house piece brimming with exuberant bass stabs & funky wobbles that give listeners a blend of dirty beats and a sexy playfulness.
