Alok and Steve Aoki have surprised fans by not only joining to re-work The Chemical Brothers‘ “Do It Again,” but also in selecting a piece of music that’s a far cry from what their respective followers might expect from such a collaboration. Both Aoki and Alok have a tendency to float between high BPM main stage electronic tracks and commercial-leaning hits. For Alok, his commercial side features poppy vocals and catchy note progressions, while Aoki has experimented with everything from rap to most recently rock.
The crossover artists’ iteration of the release keeps almost the same introduction, but the two adapt the original smoothly into their signature big room house sounds and highly emphasized low-end. “Do It Again” is out now via Dim Mak.
It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.
Russian producer Arty kicks off New Music Friday in fine fashion with a gorgeous new single called “Avalanche,” and Kygo and Rita Ora are a dream team on their new collaboration, “Carry On.” Spencer Brown and Raito deliver a dark and powerful mau5trap release, “Star Allies,” and R3HAB crafts a dreamy remix of Sofi Tukker‘s “Fantasy.” Rusko brings a classic dubstep feel to GRiZ and Boogie T‘s “Supa Fly,” and Dustycloud takes listeners deep into a shadowy nightclub on “The Way.” Peggy Gou has released her Moment EP, featuring songs like “Starry Night,” and David Guetta takes on Bebe Rexha‘s “Last Hurrah.” Two Friends hit the drive thru on “Dollar Menu,” and Sam Void brings groovy house beats to Nicky Romero and David Guetta’s “Ring the Alarm.” Culture Shock debuts a drum ‘n’ bass heater, “Renaissance,” and Steve Aoki and Alok “Do It Again” on their new collaboration. Blanke remixes Illenium and Kameron Alexander’s “Pray,” and Young Bombs release a four-track remix pack for “Starry Eyes.”
As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.
Steve Aoki has always been known for pushing boundaries. From his early work which helped bridge EDM with the mainstream to his more previous efforts to merge electronic music with rap, Steve has never been afraid to try something new. While his latest collaboration with Alok might not be as groundbreaking as some of his
Steve Aoki is a man that seems to NEVER stop. If he’s not touring the world or headlining a festival, he’s doing his radio show, handling his label Dim Mak, being a fashion icon, or even partying with Dan Bilzerian! Now, we get to see from the man himself how he does it all in his
Steve Aoki and Alan Walker have teamed up for new release “Are You Lonely” featuring ISÀK. The track brings together one of electronic music’s more formidable combinations, and the bouncy release is what listeners would expect sonically from the two artists.
The instrumental and lyrical melody of the song are based on the original “Lonely” release that came out at the end of 2018 on Alan Walker’s album, now re-imagined with new lyrics, arrangement and performance. Walker spoke about the track’s re-envisioning in an official release, saying,”I’m super excited to get this one out there with my good friend Steve. We already released a version called “Lonely” on my album, and it’s been a fan favourite during my shows. So it’s cool to get this new version out there as well!”

They have managed to perpetually place music lovers on their toes thanks to a wide spectrum of genre-spanning releases, including country music, pop, and dubstep collaborations, in addition to their feel-good electronic crossover releases.
