Screen Shot 2013-08-23 at 10.46.10 AMQulinez are having the time of their lives. Childhood pals Alexander Lager and Johannes Gustafsson were discovered by Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello, who picked up his fellow Swedes for his label Size Records. Now, Qulinez have linked up with another big name name in electronic music – Steve Aoki and his label, Dim Mak – for their single “Drop It,” and they’re serving up a relentlessly intense mix around their new track. Sounds from the Bloody Beetroots, Carnage and Borgore, and Marin Solveig fly by, but the focus remains on “Drop It” and its interplay with a little bit of Daft Punk.

“Their sound is hard and heavy, just how we like it!” Aoki tells Rolling Stone. “This mix hits just as strongly as their live sets. When I listen to it, I feel like I’m right there with them.”

Sneaky Steve Aoki and Linkin Park had a surprise up their sleeve for Tokyo’s Summer Sonic Festival with a reveal of their latest collaboration “A Light That Never Comes”. The artists had been hinting about a mysterious collab in interviews and via twitter but left it up to the fan’s imaginations. Linkin Park had played earlier during the day but front man and rapper Mike Shinoda encouraged fans to stick around for Steve Aoki’s set (as if they weren’t going to already) for a special second appearance.

The two day festival is geared more towards baseball and rock bands but let Steve Aoki get the crowd hyped up as the first act of the “Midnight Sonic” program.  Aoki was successful in getting the crowd back on the dance floor and ready to rave with hits like “Warp 1.9” and “Turbulence”.  Fresh off a sugar high from all the cake throwing the audience was shocked to see Linkin Park frontmen Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington join Steve Aoki towards the end of his set.  The sound was a total blend of the LP’s vocals and Aoki’s beats that is sure to a hit for fans of both genres.  Aoki later tweeted, “Debuting a brand new song I wrote with Linkin Park was beyond Epic! Arigato Japan!”  It turns out LP and Steve have been huge fans of each other and have been working together for over a year.  More Aoki/Linkin Park collaborations will be released with the new LP video game titled “Recharge”.
