This collab with DJ Steve Aoki, DJ Frank Walker, and AJ Mitchell is everything I never knew I needed in a summer jam. “Imagine” blends Aoki’s electro-pop feel with Walker’s dance flair and Mitchell’s sick vocals for a sweaty, fun banger. It’s an upbeat song that breezily pushes you to think about love and imagine how good it can all be.
“This track with Frank and AJ is something we poured our hearts and souls into, and I’m so excited for it to be out just in time for summer,” Aoki said in a press release. “The lyrics are something everyone can relate to, and the beat is something everyone can dance to. I wish we could bring it to you live in-person, but we have some special plans regardless to bring this to the world.”
Aoki, who is known for his shows with massive crowds that turn into epic dance parties, will no doubt figure out a way to spread this song with the whole world at the first chance he gets. It’s a high-energy song made for late-night dancing — guaranteed to help you make memories. And what’s so good about these lyrics — “I want all the good sh*t / I want all the bad sh*t / I want it with you” — is that they’re universal. Everyone has their own take on the loss of control that comes with love and fun, so no matter what your story is, you feel this song. You can tap into your own sense of euphoric high while the beat washes over you.
“‘Imagine’ feels like such a game-changing song for me personally,” Walker said in a press release. “The three of us were able to come together with our own unique sounds to something truly special on ‘Imagine.’”
There was plenty of love to go around while making this record — all three artists have nothing but respect and admiration for the others. “I’m very excited to be a part of such a fun record as ‘Imagine,’ Mitchell said in a press release. “Steve has been one of my favorite people to work with. He and Frank are both super talented and this is an awesome track you won’t be able to stop dancing to.”
Just try to stop yourself from dancing to this song — or don’t, actually, because this song is meant for movement. Blast it loud all summer and beyond and embrace the beat while you imagine the highs and lows of life and love.
