Whether playing stadiums in Australia, getting grimy with college kids in the Midwest, or entertaining bottle serviced VIPs in Vegas, you can count on Dim Mak founder Steve Aoki to put on an energy filled show. Regardless of where you are, you have a chance to crowd surf on a raft, drink Grey Goose poured directly into your mouth from the man himself, or mosh like your at a punk rock concert. Don’t believe me? Check out photos of Steve Aoki’s last trip to Las Vegas’ premier nightclub, XS.

Incredible as ever, Scanners continue to amaze audiences globally.
Enjoy, AllSaints.

90’s Post Hardcore Indie Emo Survival Kit – Dan Sena

Tim Gauthier

“I’m not much for DJ mixtapes, but I always get asked when I’m going to drop one. In the 90’s, Steve Aoki and I we’re consumed by a different musical world, far removed from the dj/dance scene. I thought instead of doing something predictable that shows where I’m at now, why not showcase the hardcore/indie/emo sound of that decade? I decided it would be actually fun compile a mixtape that actually created the impetus for Dim Mak Records. My hope is that these songs resonate with as much intensity for you, as they do for me. After all, music is the movement. Enjoy!” – Dan Sena
