Steve Aoki Releases Statement After Attacks Against Him For Remixing An Anti-Facist WWII Italian

Steve Aoki found himself in a bit of hot water over the weekend. The artist debuted a new remix with Italian duo Marnik of a classical Italian work ‘Bella Ciao'. The classical piece is instantly recognizable. It has been featured in many TV shows and movies over the years. Most recently it was in Money Hiest. While most of the reactions to the music were positive some took issue with remixing the track.

‘Bella Ciao' was an ode to those in Italy who during WWII fought against the Nazi regime and fascist government. Therefore, for many people, the track holds a deeper meaning. It would be the equivalent of someone remixing a church hymn (although let's be real, that has happened and it usually slaps). Aoki wanted to clear up his intentions regarding the remix and make sure his fans know that he deeply respects the origins of the song.

Check out the full statement below, as well as a brief clip of him playing out the remix live alongside Marnik.
