811 466 Tim Gauthier

There is no such thing as ordinary in the world of Steve Aoki, especially when it comes time to interview Dim Mak Artists. This fact rings especially true for the 22nd episode of AOKI FILES Miami Edition where Steve talks to Felix Cartal and AutoErotique and tries to get a word in edgewise.

The two Canadian producers, who recently collaborated on the completely insane track “The Alarm”, discuss what it would be like if they did a country-wide tour together (it involves a small hatchback) and who deserves the credit for making the phenomenal “The Alarm” (Felix is pretty sure he deserves all the credit). Felix and Keith both drop some fresh-out-the-oven information about new tracks coming up as, well as upcoming collaborations with other huge names in the game. One thing is for sure, when these two mega-producers get together with an extremely excited Aoki, the outcome is sure to make you do some ball grabbing of your own.

847 463 Tim Gauthier

What happens when you pair the chief of Dim Mak Records with one half of Dirtyphonics during Ultra Music Festival? The most recent episode of AOKI FILES, of course! Taking time out of pool parties, stage diving, and epic sets during Ultra, Steve took Charly and Pitchin poolside to talk about their latest release, IRREVERENCE, and the massive Irreverence Tour that kicked off March 27th.

As if the recent release of the game changing album IRREVERENCE wasn’t mind blowing enough, the French quartet kicks off a three month bus tour spanning the United States and Canada, including stops at both weekends of Coachella. Not only will they make it raver-rain with the sensational tracks from IRREVERENCE, they are also revealing brand spankin’ new stage production that is sure to accentuate their already striking, unforgettable sounds.

If you’re looking to have your ear drums blasted and your mind electrified this summer, the IRREVERENCE TOUR is a damn good place to start. Find your city below and prepare in advance to call in to work or school too #dirty to function.

When a song that mentions a “bowtie” makes you feel like some sort of fancy badass, you know that there has to be a musical mastermind (and his friends) behind it. Such is the case with Steve Aoki’s “Ooh” featuring Rob Roy off of the 2012 release of “Wonderland”.

This year, that unforgettable track has been given a fresh breath of life with remixes from Deorro, Gigi Barocco, Mustard Pimp, Lazerdisk Party Sex, and Dzeko & Torres. Each remixer brings their own taste and stylings to “Ooh” in ways that are instantly recognizable and just as infectious as the original track. Just when you thought it was perfect to begin with, these remixes highlight different aspects of the song while throwing individual flare into the mix. And the result is truly refreshing.

To top off all of the remixes, Steve released the music video for “Ooh” on March 22nd, which includes hot girls in straightjackets, a no-nonsense tough ass little kid, a sneak peek of the SoLRepublic x Aoki headphone collab, and uber creepy face painting.

So put on your bowtie, get yo’ head some screws, and join us in feeling real good about “Ooh” in all its various forms.
