Now that the dust of Austin, TX has settled, the editorials recapping the month-long SxSW event have started to appear. Jay-Z’s “Life + Times” had managed to get ahold of Steve during his SxSW performance, to touch a little more on the January-release of “Wonderland”
It’s a Friday night in Austin, Texas and the air is abuzz with people from every corner of the globe looking to get a bite of SXSW’s musical offerings. Steve Aoki, one of electronic dance music’s biggest DJs, producer and founder of Dim Mak Records, closes out the mtvU Woodie Awards with a high intensity set and unexpected drop-in from Lil’ Jon to perform “Turbulence.” After the performance, Aoki, clad in graffiti jeans and a loose Dim Mak tank, looks more like he just walked off a plane from Los Angeles instead of a humid, hot Texas stage after an energetic DJ set. Here, Aoki sits with Life + Times to talk about everything from the future of dance music to his fashion collection.

Electronic music, mega-legends Infected Mushroom are best known for being the sonic innovators of the Psy Trance genre.

Infected Mushroom brings us back into their personal studio space, showing an inside look at how their next single, Nation Of Wusses came into completion.
Starting March 31st, Felix Cartal is off with his official 2012 North American tour, supporting his latest full-length release Different Faces. As more dates come into light, Cartal will be performing at 24 individual locations across the US and Canada. Clockwork will be joining the tour for select dates, including many others to come!
‘I want people to remember it,’ EDM up-and-comer tells MTV News of just-released album.
Though Miami Music Week is over, the spirit of Dim Mak’s presence is still standing. With Felix fresh off the beach and straight into his 2+ month “Different Faces Tour”, there isn’t much that can stop him from taking this industry hostage. MTV met up with Cartal during Dim Mak’s WMC kick-off party at Mansion (with Steve Aoki, Joachim Garraud, and others) to see what really went into the making of his 2nd full-length album:
“It’s been the last year of my life kind of putting this thing together,” Cartal said. “The record’s basically all that’s going on in my life. I want people to remember it, and hopefully it means something to them.”
MTV News was able to catch some of Cartal’s set at the National Hotel during Miami Music Week, and it was obvious that “Don’t Turn on the Lights,” featuring Polina, has become a certifiable breakthrough hit. But what was most surprising was how many of Cartal’s fans could be seen singing so many of his songs throughout the set.
“I play all the singles every set, and everyone was singing along today,” Cartal said. “I don’t think you can ever get tired of that feeling.”
He may not have to, because his new album is loaded with potential smashes, already finding tracks trickling into some sets of the biggest DJs in the world…

“Too many DJs. No, really, way too many DJs.”
… I think the right amount was applied here. Miami really jumped off in a big way for Dim Mak. After the first official party hosted at Mansion, with guest performers including the boss-man Steve Aoki, Datsik, Joachim Garraud, Felix Cartal, Dirtyphonics, and many many many more, we decided to drag out the night into an all-day pool party, hosted at Dream Hotel.
Sidney Samson, R3hab, Joachim Garraud, Felix Cartal, Alvin Risk, and others joined Steve Aoki while he literally turned a swanky pool-club into a mini Ultra Fest-
“We popped by the Dim Mak party at the Dream South Beach’s Highbar just in time to randomly run into XS co-owner Jesse Waits, who was holding court with DJs including R3hab and Steve Aoki. XS is part of Steve Wynn’s collection of Las Vegas nightclubs, and Wynn made a monster announcement earlier in the week about 34 exclusive DJ residencies, including Tiesto, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Skrillex and Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso. Wynn, no doubt, is one of the largest forces financing the DJ craze in America. Vegas, in general, is responsible for keeping so many of the biggest international DJs well-fed. Both Wynn and the group behind Vegas clubs Marquee, Tao and Lavo (which ran the VIP tables at the Ultra Music Festival) flew huge banners above the beach to remind visitors of that.
Aoki jumped into the DJ booth and was soon joined by Lil Jon. Aoki took off his shirt, climbed into an inflatable raft, got thrown in the pool and jumped back into the booth, soaked. S.S. Aoki fans were delighted. Not long after, Afrojack (who brought girlfriend Paris Hilton) joined Aoki in the booth.”
