Steve Aoki

The rise of American electronic dance music (EDM) owes a lot to Steve Aoki. Born in Miami in 1977, Steve Aoki has become a living legend to young electronic musicians all over the world through his work as an electro house artist, producer, and the founder of the LA based record label Dim Mak Records.

After founding Dim Mak Records in 1996, Aoki became an icon in the electronic music industry, releasing music by headlining artists like MSTRKRFT, Klaxons, and The Bloody Beetroots. Aside from his work with Dim Mak, Aoki is both a DJ and an active club promoter. In collaboration with Blake Miller from Moving Units, Aoki remixes popular songs under the name Weird Science.

Steve Aoki released his debut mix album Pillowface and His Airplane Chronicles in January 2008 featuring artists like Justice, Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand, Santogold, Uffie, and Mickey Avalon. Pillowface and His Airplane Chronicles made Aoki an instant star as a solo artist and debuted on the Billboard Electronic Chart at number 15. The 2010 single “I’m in the House” with will.i.am continued Aoki’s international rise and made it to number 29 on the UK Singles Chart during its debut week.

Aoki released his solo album Wonderland in 2012 with guest appearances by a wide range of artists including LMFAO, Travis Barker, Rivers Cuomo of Weezer, and even Big John Duncon of the hardcore punk band The Exploited. The album became a global club hit and Aoki has continued his big name collaborations through projects with electronic giants Afrojack and Tiësto.

Steve Aoki is a favorite at nightclubs around the world and especially on college campuses. Aoki is one of the hardest working artists in the business and tours for an average of 250 shows a year. Tickets to see Steve Aoki live in concert sell out fast and his energetic show tends to pack out clubs with thousands of dancing EDM fans. Aoki continues to make big waves in the electronic music scene and he was even featured as a celebrity player in the video game NBA 2K9.

Steve Aoki DEFINITELY knows how to put on a performance!!!! I love him so much I've seen him live 5 times and he NEVER gets old! His signature champagne popping always makes the crowd go wild and on several occasions I’ve had the honor of getting splashed in the face, he once even poured it straight to my mouth. He often jumps off stage and crowd surfs but let’s not forget about the music. His mixes are so great always full of bass and upbeat they always, always, always make the crowd get down and get really dirty. There’s no way not to get soaking wet. You leave one of his shows as if you jumped into a pool with all your clothes on. If Steve Aoki is ever in town make sure to go to one of his shows! Its definitely an experience you can’t miss out on.

I recently attended the Sunset Music Festival and absolutely loved his set. It was probably the best act of the day which included antics, like popping champagne & throwing a cake into the crowd and getting chicks to crowd surf on inflatable beds. The crowd jumped and fist-pumped during his set and was easily the most enthusiastic for any act there. I hope to see him in an EDM festival soon. One two ..... woop woop!

Woah woah woah what a performance from the man at the Sunset Strip Music Festival! I was not one of his biggest fans prior to this show but after the crazy set by him, I have to say I am a convert. His tracks "Warp" and "Turbulence" certainly go to the top of my list as the performance by him was absolutely electrifying, even though it was helped by a raucous and crazy crowd at the Strip. Next on my list is to go out and see him in Las Vegas if he happens to play there as it will certainly be a night to remember. You can count me in as an "Aokian" if that's even what they call his fans.

Steve Aoki is a filler DJ: he's good to see at a festival when no one else is on. Otherwise, none of his stuff is very good and he is not that entertaining. I remember at ID festival in San Diego Afrojack was running late, so they put on Steve Aoki - and he was ok but I would never go out of my way to see him. Some people make good remixes of his song "Earthquakey People," but other than that I would pass on him.
