Steve Aoki and his label, Dim Mak, are gearing up for a huge Electric Zoo weekend in New York, and the DJ-producer is getting his mind right with this wild "Electric Zoo 2013" mix. Aoki keeps hard-hitting drops a priority, but offers dancers a chance to catch their breath with a set of varied dynamics and tempo changes. Aoki's pummeling remix of Dirtyphonics' "No Stopping Us" rolls into the shifty, disorienting piano samples of Proxy's "9000." Later, Showtek's titanic elastic bounce on "Slow Down" transforms into the echoing claps and glimmering synth chimes on Etienne De Crecy's remix of Yolanda Be Cool's "Sweat Naked." Aoki makes sure the fun comes in all shapes and sizes.

Song Stories

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
