Next from electronic music producer and DJ STEVE AOKI is “Back 2 U” with Boehm and featuring WALK THE MOON. The new studio offering is co-produced by Aoki and emerging producer Boehm, with WALK THE MOON‘s frontman Nicholas Petricca offering a resplendent vocal. Flutes and dance floor beats accent throughout.
The song surfaced yesterday, May 18 courtesy of Zane Lowe via Beats 1 Radio followed by a Billboard exclusive. It’s a unique pairing for STEVE AOKI who is known to align himself with a diverse caliber of artists in the studio. WALK THE MOON had one of the biggest global smashes as of late with “Shut Up & Dance” and Boehm has had a recent string of Hypemachine #1’s and over 25 million online streams of his various productions which blend tropical and future house.
“Back 2 U” is available now to listen and for purchase via Ultra Music here.
Says STEVE AOKI, “I really enjoyed working with both Boehm and WALK THE MOON on ‘Back 2 U.’ We each brought our own musical style to the track to make a song that I am so excited for everyone to hear.”
“Thrilled to be a part of this collaboration and inject some of our wild spirit into Steve’s ever-evolving vision of future-music,” continues WALK THE MOON‘s Nicholas Petricca. “The song opens this unique door between our genres and reveals a really emotional side of all of us involved.”
“I never thought I would have the chance to work with Steve Aoki and Walk The Moon as a growing producer. It was truly an incredible experience,” states Boehm. “The message of the song is so powerful and I think people are going to be able to relate and find their strength in it.”
