Steve Aoki & DVBBS – Without U feat. 2 Chainz (Original Mix)
2 Chainz‘ occasional forays into dance music have actually landed with some notable success, like when the former Playaz Circle proponent previously paired with the likes of Jack Ü, Cashmere Cat, and Major Lazer on a handful of various productions. His latest step into the electronic space comes by way of a Steve Aoki collaboration, first debuted in March, live at Ultra. The final product has now officially arrived, with additional firepower added by DVBBS on the new trap-leaning joint effort titled “Without U.”
2 Chainz provides his signature wordsmithing while Aoki and the Canadian producer brothers lay down a punching trap beat as the groundwork. “Without U” then breaks into a barrage of pitched-up sirens, tight hi-hat flurried and knocking snare hits. Equally suited for both headphones and main stage monitors, 2 Chainz assists on another EDM-pop piece that could rope in some solid summer airplay.
