STEVE AOKI SINGLE “HOW ELSE” FEATURING RICH THE KID & iLOVEMAKONNEN OUT NOW ON ULTRA MUSIC

AOKI DESIGNS NEW EPONYMOUS CORUM BUBBLE LIMITED EDITION TIMEPIECE FOR SALE EXCLUSIVELY AT TOURNEAU IN THE U.S. THIS YEAR

At the top of 2016, STEVE AOKI surprised the blogsphere with “How Else,” a fiery collaboration with Rich The Kid and iLoveMakonnen. Taking  a new twist, the track-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.”  Now, just in time for summer parties everywhere, the song is available through Ultra Music, accompanied by a video which made its debut on The FADER earlier today.

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:

The release of “How Else” follows AOKI‘s other current tracks “Back 2 U” with Boehm featuring WALK THE MOON–which is smashing on the streaming front with over a million Spotify plays per week since its release in May and has been added to many Top 40 radio stations including Y100 in Miami-plus“Can’t Go Home” with Felix Jaehn featuring Adam Lambert.
In other AOKI news, the Grammy-nominated producer/DJ and entrepreneur has been tapped by watch maker Corum to design a new eponymous Corum Bubble Limited Edition timepiece.   Presently in design & development phase, the Steve Aoki Corum Bubble Limited Edition will be presented in the course of the summer.  Exclusively retailed in the U.S. at Tourneau, it will be pre sold as of end of July 2016.  Says Davide Traxler, Corum CEO, “We’re giving Steve total creative freedom to develop his own interpretation of our iconic Bubble wristwatch. I’m excited to launch his electrifying vision of the Bubble.”
