Steve Aoki & k?d – BIB
A tribute to the old school days of rave, “BIB” is a 170 BPM hardcore anthem with pounding low ends spliced up with hoovers and rolling snares. The track is scheduled to be featured on Aoki’s highly-anticipated six-track rave EP, 6OKI – Rave Royale, due out January 22 via Dim Mak. The track is a follow-up to the artist’s lauded Timmy Trumpet collaboration “Tarantino” featuring STARX which is also set to appear on the EP as well.
“My 6OKI – Rave Royale EP campaign continues with the second single; this one is with k?d and we are calling it ‘BIB.’ I’ve been a fan of k?d for a while, as I really think he is making some of the most exciting hard dance music in the world right now. ‘BIB’ pulsates with so much energy from the jump, that k?d and I were literally jumping up and down over FaceTime while making this track. We hope you all can feel that same energy too as we proceed with our Rave Royale!”Steve Aoki
“Steve and I have been talking about collab’ing for a long time. We did a tour run together in Europe and wanted to make something that would go off live.”k?d
Directed by Roland de Keizer from PitchParrot Studios, the official “BIB” music video sees Aoki and k?d aka “Team 6OKI” battle it out against Colonel Apocalypse in one of the six maps on the Isle of Rave. Featuring obstacles, including a steep waterfall drop, swampy terrain, and flaming coconuts, team 6OKI ultimately overcomes. In closing, the duo has a fitting rave celebration before Aoki takes off to his next battle.
The music video is a part of Aoki’s 6OKI own dynamic animated music video series. Each video tells a story about how Aoki and his collaborators fight villains throughout the “Isle of Rave” with an ultimate goal to reach the 6OKI Rave Arena.
