STEVE AOKI is scheduled to perform together with ADVENTURE CLUB @ LIFE IN COLOR, TACOMA DOME, TACOMA, WA- MAY 17TH
LIFE IN COLOR is a ridiculous fun EDM event where its audience get spray painted, not just with Aoki’s famous cakes, but also with paint. It’s the modern day rock show and everyone is expected to go batshit crazy in an environment of pure hedonism and joy!
STEVE AOKI has always been at the forefront of future music. As the founder of Dim Mak Records and a Grammy-nominated electronic musician, his projects have grasped the attention of influencers and 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 titledNEON FUTURE. The album will be divided into two packages with Neon Future I due out August 12 and Neon Future II to be released in early 2015 on Dim Mak/Ultra Music.
STEVE AOKI’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 AOKI’s 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 STEVE 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.”
One of the hottest acts in electronic music right now, Montreal, Canada’s ADVENTURE CLUB has been a tireless source of banging remixes, uplifting summertime anthems, infectious DJ mixes, and explosive live shows since the duo’s musical trip took off in 2010. In 2013, ADVENTURE CLUB was the #9 most played artist on SoundCloud. Now, Adventure Club’s Christian Srigley and Leighton James are currently on tour in support of their debut EP Calling All Heroes (BMG) which hit #1 on iTunes Dance Album chart in the U.S. and Canada plus it ranked over 10 HypeM #1 hits. On the EP, the emotional vocal heft of quirky Malaysian songstress Yuna soars over hands-in-the-air bass beats on its lead single “Gold.” Moving through the EP, the duo applies their dark, haunting low-end with heart-wrenching melodies, and an anthemic electro-house rhythm with“Thunderclap.” The EP also includes “Wonder” that has the pair teaming up with Australian producer The Kite String Tangle – watch the brand-new music video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?
