Steve Aoki & Armin van Buuren - Music Means Love Forever

September 23, 2021

The two titans of dance music are joining forces for the first time.
Dance idol Armin van Buuren is collaborating with two-time Grammy nominee artist Steve Aoki on his new single "Music Means Love Forever".

This is a perfect combination of the style of the two artists. "Music Means Love Forever" is characterized by a lively mix of Armin van Buuren's characteristic progressive trance palette and Steve Aoki's big room electro sound.

It is worth noting that this is the first song co-produced by the two successful DJs and music producers, which is associated with a long-standing friendship.

The two dance music titans have already been on the same stage in their appearances around the world and Armin van Buuren has created his own remix for Aoki 's collaboration with Icona Pop on the song "I Love My Friends", while Aoki remixed the single "Mr. Navigator ”by van Buuren and Tempo Giusto.

After several weeks of preparing the ground for the arrival of the collaboration during their sets this summer, Armin van Buuren and Steve Aoki surprised the audience at the "Electric Love Festival" in Austria when they met on stage to present live for for the first time "Music Means Love Forever".

The monumental moment was recorded in two different music videos that were released together with the single.

One video shows the presentation of "Music Means Love Forever" through the eyes of Armin van Buuren, while the other video captures the experience of the festival through the lens of Steve Aoki.

"After remixing each other's songs, Steve and I thought it would be a good idea to join forces in the studio," explains Armin van Buuren.

"I'm a big fan of Steve and I love our brand new collaboration. The title is quite obvious - music is a universal language and a language of love for many people as well. "I can't wait for everyone to have their own memories with this song!", He continues.

"I'm so excited to share this new song I did with Armin van Buuren," says Steve Aoki.

"It is a song that praises dance music and all the emotions that accompany its experience. "We played it live together at the Electric Love Festival this summer in a real celebration of the fact that we were able to dance together again."
