Aoki spoke about working with grandson and Jasiah in a press release. “‘KULT’ is the first taste from my upcoming album and showcases some of the new and old sounds that have recently inspired me,” he says. “grandson and Jasiah have both been killing it recently, so I was excited to get them together on a track. The energy and lyrics capture a certain kind of feeling that will shake you to your core and possibly even persuade you to join the KULT.”
“I’m a huge fan of both Steve and grandson‘s music, so being able to work with both of them on this has been amazing,” Jasiah adds.
grandson also gave some insight into the meaning behind the track. “‘KULT’ is about what happens when the imaginary world becomes more attractive than the real world we inhabit,” he explains. “It’s about the cognitive disassociation with reality in a dystopian hellscape, but set at a Steve Aoki concert. Working with Steve was an awesome experience. I’ve been going to his shows since I was a broke college student, and Jasiah and I have talked about making genre-bending music together for a long time, so this was the perfect opportunity to get the gang together and throw down.”
