Longtime friends and peers Steve Aoki and Armin van Buuren have finally teamed up together on “Music Means Love Forever.” The anthem is a perfect fusion of both artists’ distinct sounds, working in a mix of Aoki’s big room electro energy and Armin’s signature progressive trance stylings. The sentiment of the track is as wholesome as it gets — “Music Means Love Forever — Move, Unite, Dance, Together!”
Previously in 2020, the EDM titans swapped remixes — Armin and Avian Grays provided a remix for Aoki’s “I Love My Friends” with Icona Pop and Aoki dropped his ‘I Am The Captain Now’ Remix for Armin’s “Mr. Navigator.”
Steve Aoki says of the release:
I’m so excited to share this new track Armin van Buuren & I collaborated on together, Music Means Love Forever. It’s a song celebrating dance music and all of the emotions that come with experiencing it. We played it out live together at Electric Love Festival this summer in a true celebration getting the chance to dance together once again.
Armin van Buuren states:
After remixing each other’s tracks, Steve and I thought it’d be a great idea to join forces in the studio. I am a great admirer of Steve and I’m loving our brand-new collab. The title is pretty self-explanatory; music is a universal language and a language of love to many people as well. I can’t wait for everyone to make memories to this track!
