Steve Aoki wants to collab with Little Mix and introduce them to EDM
The DJ says the girls are on the top of his list of collabs because he reckons it’s about time they followed in Justin Bieber’s footsteps and featured on a great dance track.
Steve told me: “I prefer to work with artists that don’t live in the EDM world because I want to do something new.
“I what to challenge myself, I what to push myself and find a new script. The new album Neon Future 3 is entirely collaborations, there’s a lot of surprises and a lot of genres I’ve not tapped into yet.
“Little Mix are great, they are someone I would love to work with”
“Little Mix are great, they are someone I would love to work with. They are incredible singers and I love all their songs, I know all the words. They’ve shown diversity working with Stormzy, and that track is amazing, I 100% want to see them on one of my songs.”
The girls performed their only UK festival show at Fusion Festival on Saturday, and are about to start working on their fifth album as the Glory Days tour comes to and end, so Steve could be in luck.
He added: “You never know, maybe I have been in contact…”
One of Aoki’s most talked about collabs to date is Just Hold On with Louis Tomlison, as it was Louis’ debut single and came shortly after the death of his mother.
And Steve says he couldn’t work with any of the other 1D boys because they have such a deep bond.

And I’m guessing she borrowed his coat too…
