Miami powerhouse DJ Steve Aoki released a new single this morning (March 23), and Billboard has the exclusive premiere of his new music video.
“Mayhem,” featuring Dutch DJ Quintino, is the first in a series of hard-hitting Big Room collaborations coming out on Dim Mak over the next 5 weeks. The campaign, called “5OKI,” also includes a massive “Dim Mak Miami Party” today, with Carnage, Desiigner, Dada Life, Grandtheft and of course Aoki all scheduled to perform.
The 2-minute music video films as a satirical horror trailer, with Aoki and Quintino stranded in a winter forest, with Aoki wearing nothing but a gown. A mysterious voice calls Aoki as the beat builds. “Sorry, Steve,” the voice says in a deep baritone, “looks like you’re gonna have to miss this one.” The camera pans to Aoki’s face: “I ain’t never missing a show,” he says. What ensues in the remaining minute of the music video is as fast-paced and heart-pumping as the single itself.
