One of the biggest achievements for up and coming producers is to be signed to a label and snag a chance to record and perform with your label boss. Well, this trophy was successfully snagged by MiR favorites DVBBS, who collaborate with EDM legend Steve Aoki for the latest single on Aoki’s upcoming album. Aoki has been riding high for months, with the success of his most recent single “Just Hold on” and his Grammy-nominated documentary I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead. “Without U” is a major step in the careers of all producers involved and is going to only open even more doors than what are already open.
As for the track itself, “Without U” has received a mixed reception from the community. While fans praise the beat and drops that make the song danceable, the rapping from Grammy-nominated rapper 2 Chainz has been called clunky and awkward. “Without U” is the latest attempt to cross bridges and blend genres from rock/rap into EDM, but would you say that Aoki succeeded? Or is “Without U” just an electronic disaster?
Make sure you give “Without U” a full listen below:
