MTV reports on the recent ‘Tornado’

Tim Gauthier

It’s been three years in the making, but fans of Steve Aoki are finally getting to hear the first couple of gems off his upcoming Wonderland album. Following debut single “Earthquakey People,” which features Weezer vocalist Rivers Cuomo, the electronic dance music DJ/ producer collaborates with one of the biggest brands in EDM today, or the past decade, for that matter: His latest song, “Tornado,” is co-produced by veteran icon Tiësto.

While the two producers may sound completely different in style, their coming together makes sense. Tiësto has had a sonic renaissance through popular partnering with folks like Diplo, Mark Knight, Kaskade, Hardwell and Marcel Woods, to name a few. And Aoki’s collabos with Nervo, Afrojack, Laidback Luke, the Bloody Beatroots and more have made him one of the most sought after touring DJs around the world. Importantly for each of their respective fanbases, “Tornado” feels equal parts Tiësto, and Aoki: a calculated result executed by two exceptional beat technicians.
