STEVE AOKI and world-renowned drummer Travis Barker of blink-182 fame have today released a special remix of the Travis Barker & Yelawolf track “Push ‘Em” on Dim Mak Records. Officially dubbed Travis Barker & Yelawolf – “Push ‘Em” (Steve Aoki & Travis Barker Remix), the reworked version highlights Barker’s raw and rapid-fire drums and combines AOKI’s next-level production skills to create a monster electro head banger built equally for EDM and punk shows alike. The original version of “Push ‘Em” was featured on the Travis Barker & Yelawolf 2012 collaborative EP Psycho White
The accompanying video remix of the new track, which premiered on RollingStone.com, mashes footage from the original “Push ‘Em” visuals featuring Travis Barker and Yelawolf in full-on concert mode interspersed with live performance footage of STEVE AOKI during his 2012 North American Deadmeat Tour as well as his main stage performance at the Sunset Strip Music Festival in Hollywood, CA.

In conjunction with the release of the new single and video, STEVE AOKI’s Dim Mak apparel line and Travis Barker’s Famous Stars and Straps clothing brand are releasing a collaborative special edition T-shirt.

About STEVE AOKI:
Grammy-nominated international EDM star STEVE AOKI broke bands such as Bloc Party, The Bloody Beetroots, Klaxons and The Gossip through deftly marketed single and full-length releases on his Dim Mak label, which he began in 1996 and now has nearly 500 releases to date. Those releases often dovetailed into performances at his weekly Dim Mak nights including Dim Mak Studios (still going strong every Tuesday night in the heart of Hollywood). As a label owner and shrewd curator of talent from around the world, those club nights have hosted the debut U.S. performances of hundreds of acts over the last decade from Lady Gaga to Ed Banger Records & Justice, Ke$ha, Skrillex, Kid Cudi, Kaiser Chiefs, No Age to Boys Noize. AOKI’s become a force of nature who has helped turn underground house, electro and harder-edged EDM with rap and rock leanings into the phenomena it is today: regularly pulling in 150,000+ fans at events such as Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival, the debut of the IDentity national electronic touring festival and his Deadmeat co-headlining tour with Datsik. AOKI’s punk roots go back to the art of the house party, when he was just a student at UCSB and was already booking bands such as The Rapture, !!!, Jimmy Eat World, Hot Water Music and At the Drive-In at his Pickle Patch bash and forging relationships with big names that would end up serving him well in the future (he met Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo at a secret show in college). In 2012, AOKI was in the next level of his incredible music career with Wonderland as his first proper full-length release, followed by Wonderland Remix and his Deadmeat: Live at Roseland Ballroom DVD, all which bring a lifetime’s worth of passion for bands, DJs, and artists of all stripes he has met and/or worked with over the past two decades to the forefront.
