‘Steve Aoki Presents Kolony’ is a wild, rap-heavy ride
Steve Aoki has been teasing his new album Kolony for months now and today, fans finally get to hear the full thing. The ten-track album released on Dim Mak/Ultra Records is Steve Aoki’s first entrance into rap.
“When I was in the studio working on this project or a song with someone that made it to the album, they brought their own crew, and I’d turn around and be like, ‘this squad is like a colony,’” explains Aoki of the album’s title. “We’re like a colony, because it just felt like the energy in the room was more vibrant. It was a lot of energy from people flowing from the studio, and I loved that think tank, that group collaboration, and spirit.”
Aoki has released a few of the tracks already, including “Lit” with Yellow Claw and Gucci Mane and “Without U” with DVBBS and 2 Chainz among others withan extensive number of collaborations with the likes of Bad Royale, Migos, and ILoveMakonnen.
