DJ Steve Aoki is no stranger to collaborating with K-Pop groups to create addictive songs.
Some of the K-Pop artists he’s worked with include A.C.E…
And, of course, BTS.
Steve Aoki has often been vocal about K-Pop artists’ talent, admiring their work ethic and connection to their fans. Like when he showered BTS with praise for their immense skills.

Most recently, Steve Aoki and (G)I-DLE did a collaboration remix of the girl group’s recent hit “NXDE.”
“NXDE” made waves in the K-Pop world as (G)I-DLE used the song to break down “stereotypes” and to promote the acceptance of your authentic self.
Like our previous albums, this one is to beat the stereotypes.
In a recent interview with Distractify, Steve Aoki shared that he “loved” the song when (G)I-DLE first reached out about a possible collaboration.
They hit me up to do a remix of “NXDE.” I heard it and I loved it.
