Steve Aoki and will.i.am are in the house

Image for Steve Aoki and will.i.am are in the house

We reported back in June that superstar LA party starter and (and let’s not forget footwear designer!) Steve Aoki had a ridiculously long list of collaborations in the works, including hook ups with the likes of Armand Van Helden, Laidback Luke, Romanthony, Boys Noize, The Bloody Beetroots and D.I.M., all of which will probably smash the guts out of clubs and dancefloors everywhere. Yet one name on that list of collaborators was puzzling us, and that was Aoki’s collaboration with Zuper Blahq who we deduced was will.i.am from Black Eyed Peas in disguise.

Premiering overnight, Aoki’s own Dim Mak Records unveiled the track and subsequent video directed by UK wiz Jam Sutton and, well, opinions are mixed. The visuals are great, blending some decidedly distorted visuals with So-Me style art direction, but will.i.am, err, Zuper Blahq’s boisterous call and response vocals just seem kind of obnoxious. Also, what’s with the mask? Is it just us or does it look like an outtake from a fetish flick? Be the judge in the clip below.

Meanwhile, Aoki’s in preparations to bring his fabled Dim Mak parties down to Australia for a slew of big dates from October 15th to the 25th, so stay tuned to ITM for the full tour dates very very soon.

The shout-outs at the end were awful. I don't think Boys Noize would like being associated with Steve Aoki somehow...

The kiddies will love it...and I'm afraid I like it too XD Although that will probably change after it is played for the 1'000'000th time in every club/commercial radio station

Really hating all these electro and r'n'b collaborations. David Guetta & Akon and examples such as this are pulling down our dance music platform to trashy all time lows

worst lyrics, worst name for an artist, WORSE THEN 'RIVERSIDE' you know an artist is scraping the bottom of the barrel when he's mentioning other "cool right now" artists - not that i'm saying that crookers, bloody beetroots n boys noize are cool just of
