DJ-record producer Steve Aoki dropped a new Linkin Park track in the memory of the band’s vocalist Chester Bennington.

Bennington, 41, died after hanging himself at a private residence in Palo Verdes Estates on July 20.

Aoki worked with Linkin Park on Darker than blood and “A light that never comes” and has released a mash-up of the two tracks, titled “Darker than the light that never bleeds” (Chester Forever Steve Aoki Remix)’.

The DJ shared a note on Instagram where he paid his tributes to Bennington, announcing the new song.

Calling the In the end singer his all-time favourite singer, Aoki wrote, “I feel so incredibly honoured to not only have worked with him on these two songs but am so deeply touched to have gotten to know him as a friend. I’m still shattered by this tragic loss. It’s hard to realise 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 people’s lives… I will never forget our conversations and moments shared together in the studio, on the stage, and in life…”

In the caption of the photo, he wrote the net proceeds of the remix will go to Music For Relief’s One More Light Fund in Bennington’s name.
