Aoki spits the truth!

August 8, 2014 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, News Tags: , , ,

When I perform, I don’t think about the haters, the Internet trolls, or anyone else. I care about giving the person in front of me something they won’t forget. And that’s why I bring the cake and raft out.

Where do I begin?

I haven’t had a chance to really to speak about all the controversy around my on-stage entertaining: DJing vs. The Cake (which includes the cake, the raft, the champagne, the stage dives…the entertainment part of the show). The haters and the trolls have always used me as an excuse to make fun of something that is out of the ordinary, something that doesn’t necessarily make sense to them. For whatever reason, I have always been a target that people love to attack. From not being American enough as a kid growing up in an all-white neighborhood, to not being indie enough for the die-hard hipsters in my 20s and now today, not being a “real DJ” for the electronic music purists…

Behind The Scenes: Wild Out Music Video Shoot w/ Borgore, Waka Flocka Flame and more

June 6, 2014 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, News, Video Tags: , , , , ,

When you put Borgore, Waka Flocka Flame, and Steve Aoki together, you know you’re in for a good time. While the video for “Wild Out” features an epic party as well as some forays into a psychedelic world, the making of the video was a party itself. Go behind the green screen and see what the guys get up to when the cameras aren’t rolling. While it might be disappointing to realize that there aren’t ACTUALLY pizzas flying through space, the on set antics might be entertaining enough to let that fact slide.

“Mementos” Steve Aoki Fan Art Opening in L.A.

March 12, 2014 Dim Mak Lifestyle, News Tags: , , , ,
Memento: an object kept as a souvenir or reminder of a person or event.

Steve Aoki hosted a fan art opening last night at the Scion AV Installation in Los Angeles. The opening, titled “Mementos”, displayed 8 remarkable pieces of fan art created by a handful of his kick ass fans from all over the world. The pieces are representative souvenirs from Aoki’s successful career in music. They are reminders of the people that matter the most to that career: the coolest fans on the planet.

In addition to the 8 pieces of fan art, all created on various mediums, the exhibit features an original piece by Dev N Gosha inspired by none other than Steve Aoki.  Outside of the exhibit, a Scion car Aoki helped design sat on display.

The line was out the door as guests were eager to get inside to meet Steve and see what he had in store for them. Unlike some of their other interactions with Steve, this time, fans in attendance wouldn’t be met with a cake to the face. Just some pretty cool and inspiring fan art.

The exhibit will be open from March 12 to March 30, 2014. Viewing hours are from 12-7pm Tuesday through Sunday.
