Next from electronic music producer and DJ Steve Aoki is Back 2 U with Boehm and featuring Walk The Moon. The new studio offering is co-produced by Aoki and emerging producer Boehm, with Walk The Moon’s frontman Nicholas Petricca offering a resplendent vocal. Flutes and dance floor beats accent throughout.
The song surfaced courtesy of Zane Lowe via Beats 1 Radio followed by a Billboard exclusive. It’s a unique pairing for Steve Aoki who is known to align himself with a diverse caliber of artists in the studio. Walk The Moon had one of the biggest global smashes as of late with Shut Up & Dance and Boehm has had a recent string of Hypemachine #1’s and over 25 million online streams of his various productions which blend tropical and future house.
Says Steve Aoki, “I really enjoyed working with both Boehm and Walk The Moon on Back 2 U. We each brought our own musical style to the track to make a song that I am so excited for everyone to hear.”
“Thrilled to be a part of this collaboration and inject some of our wild spirit into Steve’s ever-evolving vision of future-music,” continues Walk The Moon’s Nicholas Petricca. “The song opens this unique door between our genres and reveals a really emotional side of all of us involved.”
“I never thought I would have the chance to work with Steve Aoki and Walk The Moon as a growing producer. It was truly an incredible experience,” states Boehm. “The message of the song is so powerful and I think people are going to be able to relate and find their strength in it.”
