Steve Aoki and Afrojack's "No Beef" became a gateway to discovering dance music for a new generation of listeners. Now, 11 years following its release, Aoki is rekindling the magic through a fresh perspective.

In 2011, the frenetic tune with vocals from Miss Palmer was an instant attention-grabber given the intersection of Aoki's electro house characteristics and Afrojack's influence within the stylistically adjacent Dutch house movement.

Never one to tie himself to any given genre, Aoki didn't hesitate to tweak the winning formula over a decade later. With his new remix, he shakes up the drum arrangement with the kicks, snares, and percussion more consistent with the tech house arrangements dominating the airwaves today.

At heart, however, the new version of "No Beef" maintains the mainstage energy we first fell in love with all those years ago. Aoki soups up the track's lead synth, adding breadth with new layering and oscillators to give it an overall augmented presence.
