American electronic house musician Steve Aoki has premiered his new ‘Steve Jobs’ music video in a tribute to the late Apple co-founder.

The track, titled ‘Steve Jobs’, is the eighth track on Aoki’s debut studio album Wonderland and features fellow electronic musician and DJ Angger Dimas.

Citing the decision to devote the track to the Apple icon as “an epiphany”, Aoki believes Jobs’ impact on his career has been “revolutionary”.

“Whether I’m producing music or I’m playing out, whether I’m connecting with my fans through social media, without Steve Job’s creations, it would be a completely different place for me,” Aoki told website Mashable.

“I buy probably four or five laptops a year because I’m DJing and destroying my computers when I’m playing. My first computer was an Apple computer. I have an iPad, an iPhone – I’m an Apple geek. I love Steve Jobs and what he’s done for the future.”

Aoki wrote the track before the death of Jobs’ in October last year, but filmed the music video at a recent concert in New York City’s Roseland Ballroom.
