EDM producer Steve Aoki tapped into the massive BTS Army’s fanbase late last year when he collaborated with the Korean pop group, dropping the “Mic Drop (Remix)” featuring Desiigner, and this year’s heartfelt piano ballad “The Truth Untold” by the boy band’s third studio album Love Yourself: Tear. On Friday, Aoki closed down the main stage at Tomorrowland and surprised fans when he unveiled a new remix for the group’s song “The Truth Untold” during his live performance.
The song is a down-tempo ballad that reflects the sorrow and inner struggles of upholding a public image, originally performed by BTS’ four vocalists-Jin, V, Jungkook, and Jimin. But of course the electro house producer put his own spin on the Tomorrowland stage, treating the crowd with an alternate EDM version of “The Truth Untold” filled with intense beats that got the crowd dancing and raging to the feel-good party vibe remix.
Aoki debuted the EDM version on Tomorrowland’s live stream, later trending on Twitter with 182K tweets and for #TheTruthUntoldRemix with over 365K tweets.
