Steve Aoki dropped his first-ever Spanish song in early February and it's something straight out of our EDM Dreams. Azukita, as the song has been blessed, counts with the brilliant collaboration of Despacito's very own and urban artist Daddy Yankee, iconic merengue singer Elvis Crespo, and Argentinean/Venezuelan DJs Play-N-Skillz.
It's been a massive success since it was first unleashed on February 2nd, but how exactly did Aoki get this dream collab to happen? We talked to Crespo in Miami, who told us the crazy backstory.
"I got the call from Play-N-Skillz at night after I got back to the hotel from a media tour in Los Angeles," Crespo told VIX. "They told me they had something dope to tell me and needed me to head to the studio. When we were in the lobby talking about the project, I see Daddy Yankee walk in, he had just come from performing Despacito on national TV and had such a great and contagious vibe and we just started recording out parts," he added.
Aoki, in case you were wondering, is a sucker for Latin music and said the timing could not have been any better. "I wanted it to feel and sound like a collab between Latin music and EDM," he said. "We're all really proud of this song. It's about bringing everyone together, especially in this time and day."
In the midst of celebrating Azukita's success, Crespo, who's an iconic merengue singer (don't even pretend you don't know!), is also making the rounds with his new album Diomedizao, a tropical tribute to the legendary vallenato singer from Colombia Diomedes Diaz.
