Throwing cakes at fans with one hand and donating money to charity with the other, Steve Aoki values his philanthropic work just as much as he does his music. Throughout his entire musical career, Steve Aoki has been involved with a number of charities and non-profit organization, continuously finding ways to give back and volunteer as best he can. Recently, in an effort to combine his two passions, the Dim Mak label head decided to donate $1 of every ticket sold during his Aokify America North American Tour to the health and research organization with the most votes from fans on his Facebook page.
Valentine's Day, or Single Awareness Day, can be amped up to the next level with your homeboy, Steve Aoki. He'll be playing at HQ nightclub located within the Revel hotel in Atlantic City to 'Aokify' your soul on February 14th, 2014. What does being Aokified entail? A cool, big room set with all the sickest tracks, possibly crowd surfing (a huge possibly, considering it's within a club venue) and someone lucky gets to go home with the credibility to say that he or she have been caked by Steve Aoki, himself.
No matter how predictable a Steve Aoki show might be, you just never know. As the head honcho behind Dim Mak Records, Steve Aoki's explosive style will have you forget your worries for the night. Come in your dopest club attire to celebrate Valentine's Day with Steve Aoki and your loved ones.
One might assume that combining the crazy, electro house intensity of Steve Aoki with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike's big room bravado and Autoerotique's uncontainable bass would result in the ear-piercing sound of incoherent madness, but you'd be wrong. The sound you hear isn't painful feedback but instead, a perfectly blended aural anthem of mind-and-speaker-blowing proportions.
Billboard had the chance to sit down with the Austrailian twin sisters, Mim and Liv, for a quick interview which revealed their future plans and their upcoming album. Always personable and super adorable, the sisters seemed excited to be present at Sundance 2014. Nervo was one of the featured musicians that performed at Park City Live, along with their colleague, Steve Aoki.
They revealed their monthly radio show with BBC Radio 1, Nervo Nation, where they can introduce their new tracks during the segment allowing for a more interactive show. Additionally, their new album is in its finishing touches and the sisters showed some apprehension on submitting their final edition of the album. Lastly, another collaboration with Steve Aoki is in the works for his album, so stay tuned for that. They've previously worked on a collaboration before with Afrojack on the track, 'We're All No One.'
You can watch the full interview below to view Nervo's bubbly personality:
Although Dim Mak Records is synonymous with producing cutting edge electronic music today, they had their origins in releasing SoCal style hardcore, punk rock bands when it was first launched by Steve Aoki in 1996. Now more than a decade later, Dim Mak Records is celebrating their 500th release with the 'King Babies' EP from experimental art punkers, The Death Set.
This EP features 4 tracks of entirely new music from NYC-based Austrailian thrashers, The Death Set, exemplifying a cross mix of genres from punk, noise, grunge, and beyond. They epitomize the spirit of Dim Mak of punk, electro and hardcore. You can stream the preview of the 'King Babies' EP below, but the full release will be out on January 21.
Dim Mak's latest signee, Coone, and the head honcho of the label, Steve Aoki, have come together to create this ridiculously tough track titled "Can't Stop The Swag". Slowly but surely, Aoki will bring hardstyle to the forefront of American EDM, and this track might be the one to finally take it there. It's got the word 'swag' in its title, so I'm sure the youngin's will love this one. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
Steve Aoki, the ever-jumping, cake-throwing, crowd-surfing DJ/producer behind Dim Mak Records has wasted no time kicking it into high gear for 2014 and shows no sign of slowing down. In keeping with the high energy hype people have come to expect from him, Aoki has announced a three week series of releases through his label, cleverly titled 3OKI.
Included in the schedule of releases are a seven track remix EP for Aoki's collaboration with Linkin Park, 'A Light That Never Comes,' and two new singles. The first is a collaboration with Dim Mak's first hardstyle artist, Coone, and the second features the combined efforts of long time label artist Autoerotique and the dynamic duo that is Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike.
On January 30th, Steve Aoki's Dim Mak label and AC Slater, the mastermind behind Party Like Us Records, will host the launch of Night Bass at Sound Nightclub in Los Angeles. Recognized as the king of bass heavy house, AC Slater himself will be at the forefront of the madness on opening night alongside Dirtybird producer, Christian Martin. Featuring support from Astronomar, Petey Clicks, and Bones for the opening event, Night Bass will solidify itself as a must-see, major showcasing of late night, bass-crazy talent from all around the world.
DJ & Producer Garmiani (pronounced with a heavy 'G'), is making some serious airwaves in a short span of time. After releasing his first single, 'The City Is Mine,' with Salvatore Ganacci in 2013, he's gained support from fellow artists like Avicii and the track was featured on the Marquee Compilation Album. Steadily gaining momentum, Garmiani continued releasing singles under Dim Mak records like 'Rumble' and 'Dance Motherfucker' which quickly became festival-favorite tracks.
