Global DJ and producerSteve Aokijoin forces with Canadian/American alternative artist grandson featuring up and coming artist Jasiah on a new epic track ‘KULT’ featured along with an official music video
The new single “KULT” by Steve Aoki and grandson featuring Jasiah, lyrically approaches the cynicism and pressure of having the world on your back; cracking under the weight and looking for a way out.
Steve Aoki says about the new single, “KULT is the first taste from my upcoming album and showcases some of the new and old sounds that have recently inspired me,” Aoki states. “grandson and Jasiah have both been killing it recently, so I was excited to get them together on a track. The energy and lyrics capture a certain kind of feeling that will shake you to your core and possibly even persuade you to join the KULT.”
About Steve Aoki & grandson – KULT (ft. Jasiah):
The song bursts into action with “breakout rocker” (Variety) grandson singing, “I’ve got the weight of the world on my back / It made me slip right through the cracks / It caused a chain reaction…” over Aoki’s foreboding guitar-driven soundscape.
The cathartic chorus kicks in with earworm-inducing lyrics, before dropping into a second verse sung by Jasiah, a Dayton, Ohio native known for his piercing cross-genre collaborations with the likes of Travis Barker, Yung Bans and 6ix9ine.
grandson shares, “KULT is about what happens when the imaginary world becomes more attractive than the real world we inhabit,” grandson explains. “It’s about the cognitive disassociation with reality in a dystopian hellscape, but set at a Steve Aoki concert. Working with Steve was an awesome experience, I’ve been going to his shows since I was a broke college student, and Jasiah and I have talked about making genre-bending music together for a long time so this was the perfect opportunity to get the gang together and throw down.”
Through a gritty clandestine lens, the camera follows Aoki, grandson, and Jasiah along as they slowly become the interests of a bizarre underworld cult.
Jasiah adds, “I’m a huge fan of both Steve and grandson’s music so being able to work with both of them on this has been amazing.”
