It was only a matter of time before psytrance completely blew up. The undeniable energy of the genre perfect aligns with what fans look for today in their music. The sound is so powerful that many artists like Kayzo and Carnage have started to incorporate the high BPM genre into their production. Vini Vici are undisputed Gods of the psytrance world. After a string of massively successful solo singles, the guys have teamed up with an unlikely collaboration – Steve Aoki.
The new collaboration is called ‘Moshi Moshi'. The tune is a perfect blend of the unique styles each artist represents. The intro is slow and has some deep hip-hop influences. The beginning trap arrangments ultimately only serve as a distraction from what is to come. As soon as ‘Moshi Moshi' drops it goes from trap to pure psytrance in a matter of seconds.
On Spotify, Mama Aoki is featured as a collaborator, so we have to imagine Steve used his own mother for the sample found just before the drop. Which is wholesome as all get out. While ‘Moshi Moshi' is a fun track that will undoubtedly help the psytrance sound reach a broader audience, there is something a bit off about this tune. It seems that while the mixture of styles was initially exciting at the front end of the record, elements end up clashing more than they blend at times. Overall all though it always enjoyable to see an artist stray outside their comfort zone. Check out the track below.
