2x-GRAMMY-nominated artist and producer Steve Aoki and Swedish producer KAAZE team up to soundtrack festival season with their latest collaboration “Won’t Forget This Time,” featuring anthemic vocals sung by John Martin (the voice behind Swedish House Mafia’s hit singles “Save the World” and “Don’t You Worry Child.”) Aoki dropped the big progressive house track during his recent MainStage headline performance at Tomorrowland 2023, where he was joined by KAAZE and John Martin. “Won’t Forget This Time” continues to be a highlight of Aoki’s summer sets as he makes his way across the European festival circuit.
Steve Aoki on the collaboration: “‘Won’t Forget This Time’ is a powerful fusion of emotions and melodies, crafted to ignite the dancefloor and leave a lasting impression on festival-goers. Teaming up once again with KAAZE and John Martin, we aimed to create a track that resonates with the spirit of festival season, taking listeners on a memorable musical journey.”
KAAZE shares: “I wanted to find that emotional touch for ‘Won’t Forget This Time.’ Steve and I had the exact same vision for the song when we started working on it. It’s like you could dance and cry at the same time. And John Martin really outdid himself this time.”
John Martin adds: “This is a song reminding us to be grateful for the precious moments in life. Stay present and keep your heart open for the magic.”
“Won’t Forget This Time” marks the second time Aoki, KAAZE and Martin have collaborated on a track together. Last year, all three artists linked up on “Whole Again,” a euphoric soul-searching anthem featured on Aoki’s HiROQUEST: Genesis album. One of the defining moments of the album, “Whole Again” captured the multitudes of feelings that many of us have experienced over the past few years. On “Won’t Forget This Time,” Aoki, KAAZE and Martin pick up where they left off, gifting fans another emotion-fueled dancefloor classic.
