Not that the song wasn’t already a classic, but Steve Aoki just added a whole other level to Duran Duran’s Hungry Like the Wolf! Unlike most remixes where the DJ has creative license as to the dissection of the song, this was an actual collaboration in which both artists spent studio time together crafting where beats and progressions would go to make it a new classic. Both Duran Duran and Steve Aoki have hit the mark, taking a step in trying to bridge the musical gap between an older audience and those currently being raised in an EDM culture.
Duran Duran has been on a world tour since the beginning of 2012 to promote their new album, All You Need is Now, and show no sign of slowing down playing mostly to sold out arenas and major music festivals.
