The Kolony is growing. Savior of Sound, Steve Aoki’s new hip-hop infused album takes us on a ride with some of his favorite rappers like 2 Chainz, Gucci Mane, Rich The Kid, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yacthy, Migos, Wale and Ma$e. After hearing the initial singles, like “Lit” featuring T-Pain and Gucci Mane, “Without U” featuring 2 Chainz, and “Night Call” with Migos, the full length album with 10 tracks is finally here for your listening pleasure.
The Initial Reviews
“What I found when I set aside my biases was a unique album that had some impressive tracks throughout. Steve Aoki took a massive risk by producing Kolony and I have to say, I really respect him for it. The emerging trend of EDM Rap is one that I have mixed feelings on. Many times the productions feel forced, while other times tracks are actually pretty damn original and interesting.”
In comparison to his prior work, (see: Wonderland, Neon Future I and Neon Future II) Kolony isn’t just made up of infectious electronic productions. It’s a mix of both the latter — and hip hop. It’s safe to say every track of the album features one of rap’s most current shining stars. There are Migos and Lil Yachty on “Night Call”; T-Pain and Gucci Mane on the braggadocious “Lit,” and a new comer from Trinidad named Jimmy October. In it’s entirety, the album’s Southern trap sound influence is more then just present — it’s in the project’s DNA.
