“No Beef is an absolute classic track that Afrojack & I collaborated on 11 years ago. When we realized we were coming up on the anniversary of the release, we just had to bring the track back with a set of brand new remixes including one I made myself. I’m so excited for you guys to hear these new takes on one of my old favorites.” – Steve Aoki
“11 years later and the crowd always goes wild whenever I play No Beef! Steve and I had to celebrate the anniversary by giving it some fresh life with new remixes from some of our favorite artists. Hope you enjoy!” – Afrojack
Eleven years ago, electro house and EDM were going through an impressive rise to fame, quickly becoming the most dominant music genres in the world. Both Afrojack and Steve Aoki were riding this wave with a series of global hit productions, and their collab single “No Beef” quickly turned into a powerful anthem for the emerging dance music culture.
Initially released in summer 2011, and added as a bonus track on Steve Aoki’s 2012 debut album Wonderland, the track featured Miss Palmer on fierce vocal duty, while a killer music video, featuring cameos from Lil Jon, Flo Rida, playmate Holly Madison and Ultimate Fighter Champion Chuck Liddell, unequivocally portrayed the modern DJ life – it set the tone for the rest of the festival dominated decade.
Since then, the ‘Afroki’ collab has remained an iconic tune in dance music history. Still a record to raise the roof at any rave, its 11th anniversary is worthy of a celebration honored by an impressive series of artists, spread over two luscious remix packages.
