Steve Aoki - How Else (Remixes)
Following his remix of Blink-182’s “Bored To Death,” STEVE AOKI is back with more for dance floors everywhere. Today (September 16), Ultra Music/Dim Mak have made available a three-song remix package of AOKI, Rich The Kid and iLoveMakonnen’s “How Else.” ETOnline premiered world-class producer/DJ David Guetta‘s remix which turns the low-down original into a major dance floor burner, while emerging LA-based producer Kayzo gets wild taking the track deeper across harder styles.
At the top of 2016, STEVE AOKI, Rich The Kid and iLoveMakonnen surprised the blogsphere with “How Else.”Taking a new twist, the original track (released on June 29)-with its catchy ‘Whip It’ hook– struck a chord from the likes of The Fader, HipHopDX,Rap Radar and HotNewHipHop who wrote, “…it makes effective use of Makonnen yelling, ‘How else am I gon’ get it?’ Rich and Makonnen’s snappy trap punchlines go surprisingly well alongside Aoki’s wonky bass drops, and ‘How Else’ should have some crossover appeal come festival season.” Elsewhere, Complex it as”…a mind-bending electronic experience that actually sounds great with Makonnen and Rich’s verses.”
Check out the video featuring AOKI, Rich The Kid and iLoveMakonnen performing and partying during the Dim Mak 20th Anniversary party at this past spring’s Miami Music Week here:
