Steve Aoki f/ Linkin Park “Darker Than Blood”

Steve Aoki & Linkin Park’s collab from earlier this year still reigns as a *Tibs Fav. of 2015 for me. I thought Chester really sounded at home on the futuristic, uptempo production and it carries over to the all-new futuristic (2052, to be exact) visual above.

Aoki and Mike Shinoda try and create a cure for a virus that’s plaguing the globe in 2052 and the video follows that pursuit and test on a young patient. The tech looks the part too and as a result, the video is aesthetically beautiful on top of creating new substance for the song. Needless to say, press play above.

BONUS: Time has a nice write-up on Linkin Park’s newest venture — launching their own venture capital firm: Machine Shop. A quick read and it’s great to see the musicians enter a new field and apply their creativity towards the VC’s focus. Would love to find out even more about Machine Shop.
