The shared work comes after the two had traded remixes last year. Aoki added some funky flavor to Van Buuren’s “Mr. Navigator,” while Van Buuren turned Aoki’s pop-infused “I Love My Friends,” into a certified rave tune.
Now the pair have demonstrated they can share that same seamless dynamic when working from scratch. “Music Means Love Forever,” is an electro heater fit for any main stage (which makes sense considering that is the only stage either Aoki or Van Buuren would ever play).
Stream “Music Means Love Forever,” below and check out what both artists had to say about the cut:
“I’m so excited to share this new track Armin van Buuren and I collaborated on together, ‘Music Means Love Forever.’ It’s a song celebrating dance music and all of the emotions that come with experiencing it. We played it out live together at Electric Love Festival this summer in a true celebration getting the chance to dance together once again,” says Steve Aoki.
“After remixing each other’s tracks, Steve and I thought it’d be a great idea to join forces in the studio. I am a great admirer of Steve and I’m loving our brand new collaboration. The title is pretty self-explanatory; music is a universal language and a language of love to many people as well. I can’t wait for everyone to make memories to this track!” says Armin Van Buuren.
