Steve Aoki Releases ‘Darker Than the Light That Never Bleeds’ Chester Bennington Tribute Remix
The loss of Chester Bennington continues to be felt and artists have found a number of ways to show their respect. One of the most recent tributes comes from acclaimed DJ and producer Steve Aoki, who created a special remix of the two tracks he previously worked on with Bennington and Linkin Park, now combined under the moniker, "Darker Than the Light That Never Bleeds." You can hear the remix in full above.
Aoki also posted a tribute on social media to Bennington that reads as follows: "Chester Bennington was my favorite singer of all time. I feel so incredibly honored to not only have worked with him on these two songs but am so deeply touched that I have gotten to know him as a friend. I'm still shattered by this tragic loss. It's hard to realize that he is not coming back. Chester was such an invaluable human being that bled out the pain and passion through Linkin Park, touching so many peoples lives. He helped so many people that felt similar feelings around the world scream out and feel like they are not alone. Life can be incredibly trying and tough. Nothing can bring more consolation than knowing there are others going through this same pain. Chester was such a beautiful human being. I will never forget our conversations and moments shared together in the studio, on the stage and in life. We now have Chester in our hearts and minds forever. Keep his inspiration and passion alive and play Linkin Park f--king loud. Scream the lyrics f--king loud. Live these moments f--king loud. I miss you dear friend. You are in our hearts and minds forever."
The remix combines the songs "Darker Than Blood" and "The Light That Never Comes." It's currently available to purchase via a number of platforms that you can access here. Net proceeds from sales of the remix will go to Music For Relief's One More Light Fund in Bennington's name.
Speaking with TMZ, Aoki stated, "They are an incredible organization and do impressive work, so I fully support what Linkin Park's doing with Music for Relief." Aoki has been playing his remix at recent shows and he says, "I'm seeing a great response. I love seeing the crowd sing along to Chester's lyrics and voice."
