Steve Aoki and Armin van Buuren have collaborated on a new single.

Marking the first collaborative single the long-time friends have created together, ‘Music Means Love Forever’ comes a year on from van Buuren remixing Aoki’s Icona Pop collaboration ‘I Love My Friends’, and Aoki reworking van Buuren and Tempo Giusto’s ‘Mr. Navigator’. 

“After remixing each other’s tracks, Steve and I thought it’d be a great idea to join forces in the studio,” revealed Armin van Buuren. “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!”

“I’m so excited to share this new track Armin van Buuren and I collaborated on together”, added Aoki. “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 of getting to dance together once again.”

To celebrate the release, SiriusXM’s BPM channel hosted van Buuren and Aoki takeovers on 18th and 19th September.

Earlier this year, van Buuren hosted the “biggest trance pub quiz ever“.
