In a statement to the Daily Star newspaper's Wired column, Steve Aoki reportedly stated that he is working on new music under an entirely new alias. 

The statement read in part, "I've been creating a new alter ego, a new artist name, and I am making a whole different sound."

At this point in time Aoki did not let any further details slip and seems to generally be keeping his plans under wraps for now. However, we do know the artist has been spending quite a bit of time in the studio as of late. Just last week, Aoki's massive album Neon Future IV dropped featuring a slew of featured artists from Icona Pop to Slushii.
