Behind the Scenes of Steve Aoki's 'Kolony' Music Videos With Album Collaborators DVBBS, 2 Chainz & T-Pain: Exclusive


Have you heard Steve Aoki's Kolony yet? It's a star-studded, traplectro event. It's one of the bangingest things Billboard Dance has heard in a hot minute. Now, he's putting out 10 music videos to go along with each fire tune on the LP. We just got to meet up with Aoki in his Los Angeles home to get the exclusive look at the madness.

Matt Medved caught up with Aoki, plus the album collaborators DVBBS and 2 Chainz (on "Without U") and T-Pain (on "Lit") to get the skinny on the inspirations that influenced Aoki's hard, street-crawling beats.

"I mainly produce out of L.A.,” he says, “but when I went to Atlanta and started working on music out there, that's when I really learned that the hotbed of music, American music, is Atlanta."

Watch the full interview with Aoki and friends below, and look out for more of Aoki's videos in the weeks to come.
