The Avant Garde Diaries | Steve Aoki – Spirit Shaped by Music


Steve Aoki’s gigs are over the top and unpredictable, and he can be called one of the most successful DJs and music producers of the present. Through his label DIM MAK Records, Aoki has helped shape the trajectory of electro-house music with artists such as Jidax, Bloody Beetroots, and Atari Teenage Riot. Aoki plays around 250 gigs a year, but he still finds time to release records, do remixes for artists such as Lenny Kravitz, Snoop Dogg, and Bloc Party, collaborate with and Kid Cudi, and even design for his own DIM MAK clothing line.
