Steve Aoki Recruits will.i.am, Rivers Cuomo, Travis Barker for Album

By STEVE BALTIN
SEPTEMBER 12, 2011 2:25 PM ET

For his new album Wonderland (out around Christmas), Steve Aoki enlisted the help of a few of his close friends – including will.i.am, Travis Barker, LMFAO and Rivers Cuomo, who came out to perform their new song “Earthquakey People” at Aoki’s IDentity Festival show at the Hollywood Palladium last Sunday.

“Rivers is a friend and I wrote the record specifically for him in mind,” Aoki says of the collaboration, which will be released as a single in October.

Aoki has worked with several of the artists previously, including will.i.am and Barker. The will.i.am track, “Danger,” is a followup of sorts to their previous collaboration, “I’m In The House.” “He’s like the king of pop as far as producing, he’s amazing,” says Aoki. “For example, ‘I’m In The House’ was just a straight dance record and he turned it into a pop song by creating repetition, harmony and great vocals. For this one I gave him a pretty harder edged record, but he made it friendlier for the radio. I love working with Will.”

Like most of his DJ peers, Aoki drops singles regularly and is able to tour for months at a time on his club hits, but releasing this album was important to him. “I want an album out, and the way I’m pushing this album is it’s almost like a singles compilation of my records that I’ve just written,” he says.

Est. 1996, Los Angeles, CA – Dim Mak surfaced as an independent record label, blossomed from a studio of record pressings to an international distributor of music and media, events production company, and fashion line; all encompassing Steve Aoki’s idea of a ‘lifestyle of sound.’ Since its inception, Dim Mak has served as an advantageous forefront to an array of genres, breaking global icons such as Bloc Party, MSTRKRFT, The Bloody Beetroots and many more. After 15 years, Dim Mak has pulled its roots and shown them to the world, with four weekly events in California, including branded stages at festivals around the world, turning its foundation into a movement of millions.

To celebrate this milestone, we are calling out to the streets of Los Angeles to reintroduce Dim Mak in it’s biggest form yet. This event will take place at Dim Mak studios, live with over 7 acts including- Steve Aoki, Felix Cartal, Autoerotique, Villains, Alvin Risk, and many more!

Villains
LA’s Villains are making a lot of noise in the electro scene and spreading their music to the underground and mainstream alike. The production duo consisting of Mad V and Koncept met back in 2002. After years of working on solo projects in the LA Drum and Bass scene, they started working in the studio together. It took only a few months of turning out flawless bootleg remixes and dance floor filling original productions before the offers to DJ all over the world began pouring in. Villains have come a long way in a very short period of time.
