Steve Aoki to Release New Album “Neon Future”

Steve Aoki has always been at the forefront of future music. As the founder of Dim Mak Records, his projects have grasped the attention of music enthusiasts worldwide. Given that he’s an avid follower of forward-thinking and evolving technology, it’s only fitting that the new album from Aoki be titled Neon Future. The album will be divided into 2 packages with Neon Future I due out August 12 and Neon Future II to be released in early 2015.

Steve’s Neon Future is a utopian environment that showcases the relationship between humans and technology. It’s is not about flying cars and speaking cyborgs, but more so about efficient and practical enhancements that improve the quality of life as we navigate and interact with an almost exclusively digital landscape. Even the art direction for Neon Future intends to visually represent an idea of the future as a world with extreme technological and scientific innovation.

“When I think of the dance world, I think of how it’s a colorful world.  That, along with my fascination with futurism defined the concept of my new album, Neon Future,” says Aoki. “I see the future in a more of a utopian sense, built through technology, music and color.  These concepts became the driving force for the creation of my first double album.”

Part one of Neon Future features collaborations with the likes of Fall Out Boy, Empire of the Sun,, Flux Pavilion, Bonnie McKee and Machine Gun Kelly. The first single, “Rage The Night Away,” featuring Waka Flocka Flame, is out now.

To celebrate the release of Neon Future I, Aoki will headline Madison Square Garden in NYC on Saturday, August 16.
