Steve Aoki takes on "Bored To Death" with some seriously BANGING results.
Pop punk comeback kings Blink 182 have dropped a new version of hit single "Bored To Death" and it has an unexpected EDM twist.
The remix by dance maestro Steve Aoki adds some serious beats to the perky guitar track with a MASSIVE breakdown section towards the climax.
The DJ has spoken with Rolling Stone about his love for the band and how the collab came about:
Their songs become undeniable sing-a-longs with the most relatable lyrics. They are extremely cool dudes in general, and I love working in the studio with people so dedicated to their craft. ..Once I heard they were back together working on this album I had to get in Feldmann's studio with them and chop it up. The first thing I could get my hands on was the stems to 'Bored to Death,' so I went to work immediately on this remix. The thing is, I love every song on the new album and I’d probably remix all of them because I'm that much of a fan boy...I play this remix in every DJ set around the world, and I always stop the music to let the crowd know that Blink-182 is one of my favorite bands in the world – because they are.Steve Aoki
An unexpected but welcome team-up then!
