11 YEARS LATER, STEVE AOKI REMIXES “NO BEEF” FOR A DOSE OF DANCE MUSIC NOSTALGIA
In 2011, the frenetic track, which featured vocals from Miss Palmer, became an instant hit due to the convergence of Aoki’s electro house characteristics with Afrojack’s influence within the stylistically adjacent Dutch house movement.
Aoki, who has never been one to stick to a single genre, didn’t hesitate to tweak the winning formula more than a decade after it was first introduced. The kicks, snares, and percussion in his new remix are more consistent with the tech house arrangements currently dominating the airwaves, and the percussion is more consistent with the drum arrangement in the original.
But at its core, the new version of “No Beef” maintains the same high-octane mainstage energy that we first fell in love with all those years ago. Using new layers and oscillators, Aoki expands the breadth of the track’s lead synth, giving it a more powerful presence in the mix as a whole.
Aoki and Afrojack have opened the doors to innovation by bringing in Grammy-nominated Goodboys, LUM!X, and the combined efforts of dubstep heavyweights Riot Ten and Crankdat to the fold to offer their unique takes on the track. The track is being released as part of the celebration.
The best part is that there will be more to come. Another remix package for “No Beef” will be released in the near future, with a slew of additional producers taking their turn at this timeless classic. In the meantime, you can listen to No Beef (Remixes Pt. 1) here.
