Steve Aoki Presents Kolony is the superstar EDM DJ's headlong dive into trap. The album is packed with big-name guest rappers -- Gucci Mane, T-Pain, 2 Chainz, Lil Yachty, and Migos all contribute verses. iLoveMakonnen appears twice, on opener "Kolony Anthem" (also featuring Bok Nero) and "How Else" (with Rich the Kid), and other guests range from Wale to '90s pop-rapper Mase. A few tracks feature co-production by big names in the EDM festival world, including Yellow Claw, DVBBS, and Big Gigantic. The album wastes no time, packing an entire party into 30 minutes.
