2 of the biggest stars in the electronic music scene Afrojack and Steve Aoki celebrates 11th Birthday for their iconic track “No Beef” featuring Miss Palmer
The first remix package for “No Beef” by Afrojack and Steve Aoki is out now, featuring a mesmerizing version by Grammy-nominated duo Goodboys, adding touching vocals, warm melodics, and a sturdy deep house drop. Also present on this celebratory release are fresh remixes by LUM!X, as well as Riot Ten & Crankdat.
It’s a furious blast from the past, underlining the everlasting impact of this timeless festival anthem, scored by a star-studded line-up of contemporary dance producers. Catch it now on Afrojack’s Wall Recordings & Dim Mak Records, and stay tuned for The Remixes Part 2, coming soon.
Initially released in summer 2011, and added as a bonus track on Steve Aoki’s 2012 debut album ‘Wonderland,’ the track featured Miss Palmer on fierce vocal duty, while a killer music video, featuring cameos from Lil Jon, Flo Rida, playmate Holly Madison and Ultimate Fighter Champion Chuck Liddell, unequivocally portrayed the modern DJ life – it set the tone for the rest of the festival dominated decade.
Both Afrojack and Steve Aoki were riding this wave with a series of global hit productions, and their collab single “No Beef” quickly turned into a powerful anthem for the emerging dance music culture.
Since then, the ‘Afroki’ collab has remained an iconic tune in dance music history. Still a record to raise the roof at any rave, its 11th anniversary deserves a worthy celebration, as it is honored by an impressive series of artists, spread over two remix packages.
Known for their Grammy-nominated Meduza collab “Piece Of Your Heart,” Goodboys has added sweet layers of vocal deep house across the original rave anthem. The inventive melodics of “No Beef” are still there, but enhanced by emotionally driven male vocals, sweet piano licks, and an overall contemporary house vibe, ready to conquer a fresh audience all over again.
Of course, Steve Aoki himself is also part of the celebration. The US dance music superstar drops a blistering “11 Years Later Remix,” breaking up the original’s electro vibe with a deep, progressive tinged, invigorating atmosphere.
LUM!X plunging the song into his trademark sound, featuring triplet-styled beats and a huge, hands-in-the-air 2022 rave chorus. Closing off this first remix package is the action-packed version from Riot Ten & Crankdat, who blow the record sky high with pumped-up beats and raw, brutal dubstep sounds.
