Steve Aoki is a must. It doesn’t matter what kind of music, venues, people, whatever that you like. He puts on one of the best live shows of any musician across any genre in the world. Straight up.
Steve Aoki’s first performance at Glow last November was possibly the most crowded Glow at Fur has ever been. The crowd was insane, the music was rocking something serious and Steve was a maniac! It was like nothing we had ever experienced. From the bouncers to the bartenders; the crowd and the entire Glow crew were speechless as Steve repeatedly jumped on top of the decks, microphone in hand, going ape sh*t, spraying champagne and diving into the crowd multiple times. Nowhere else can you find a DJ putting on a rock show like that!
Steve Aoki. The man behind Dim Mak Records who founded artists from Bloc Party, The Kills, The Gossip, Klaxons and many more also is the same man behind the production moniker Weird Science that has remixed Peaches, Snoop Dogg and Bloc Party. Under his own name, Aoki has remixed everyone from the Jackson 5 to The Killers, Tiga and Bloc Party as well as produced original tracks both solo and in collaboration with internationally renowned producers like Armand van Helden, Laidback Luke Junkie XL and The Bloody Beetroots.
Hailing from Los Angeles you can check most of his antics up on his partner in crime’s website www.TheCobrasnake.com and read his infamous blog on dimmak.com. Not to mention he’s got his own clothing line to boot.
