We first saw a resurgence of house music in the United States—and now techno is not far behind. We’re seeing more and more DJs dive into the raw, underground sounds of the genre, and the latest to venture into the dark is none other than superstar Steve Aoki. He has a new techno side project called Ninja Attack, and he recently delivered the first single.
The debut Ninja Attack release is titled “Aurora” and is nothing short of a banger. A driving, constant kick is the main focus of the tune, with dark, mysterious sound design and other spine-tingling elements. This first Ninja Attack drop comes via both Aoki’s Dim Mak and MDLEBEAST, which is the Saudi label behind the music festival SOUNDSTORM.
You can stream the first-ever Ninja Attack release below. Enjoy!
