Steve Aoki has teamed up with bass music quartet Bad Royale to deliver a new remix of his recent single “Back 2 U.” The original version was released earlier in the year and featured Romanian producer Boehm and rock band Walk The Moon.
Steve Aoki and Bad Royale bring some dancehall influence to their “Back 2 U” remix, with reggae infused rhythms and uplfiting vibes throughout the verses. Things take a radical turn during the drops though, as the catchy melodies and jubilant vocals are traded in for pounding tribal percussion and wild elephant-like samples that push the energy to the limit. While the original version featured some tropical house influence and a mainstage friendly sound, the new remix is a pretty sharp contrast with its jungle terror styled drops and Caribbean vibes.
Steve Aoki‘s re-imagining of his own track is a worthy take on the original, bringing plenty of new elements to satisfy fans. The inclusion of Bad Royale on the effort was a wise choice as well, and their signature brand of spastic dance floor work outs take the tune to new heights.
