2x Grammy-nominated producer/DJ Steve Aoki creates electronic Mayhem alongside Quintino on their latest collaborative single, premiered today on Billboard. Big room kicks, electric synths and heavy bass collide into a turbulent earthquake of sound, spawning an energetic main stage staple. Mayhem is the first single from Aoki’s ‘5OKI’ campaign, which consists of five collaborative single releases and accompanying music videos, coming out over five consecutive weeks on Dim Mak. Each single in the 5OKI campaign marks a return to the big room, electro house sound that established Aoki as an international festival force.
5 SINGLES • 5 WEEKS • 5OKI
Leading with an illustration designed by pop-surrealist Nicky Barkla, the cover art for all the singles mirror movie posters, keeping in the same vein as the theatrically-inspired music videos. The official Mayhem music video is shot in the style of a movie trailer, starring Steve Aoki and Quintino. With the concert scenes filmed live at The Armory in Minneapolis when Quintino joined Aoki’s Kolony US Tour, the visual tells the story of two touring musicians whose tour bus breaks down, leaving them stranded in the snow. As a mysterious, shapeshifting figure stalks in the shadows, the video progresses with both Aoki and Quintino fighting for their lives in an attempt to make it to their gig.
