One thing you shouldn’t expect from your favorite producer is one hell of a throwing arm. Unless, of course, your favorite producer is STEVE AOKI-the chief of Dim Mak Records and the chief of “holy crap did you see that?!” Just three days ago at VELD FEST, Steve performed one of his high energy, no holds barred shows for thousands of fans, and probably every person in that crowd wanted their cake and wanted to eat it too! One fan, wheelchair bound, was raised up high over the crowd when time came for Steve to pick the lucky cake recipient. The thing is….the guy was impossibly far away from where Steve stood on his sound table. The other thing is that there is no such thing as “impossible” when it comes to Steve Aoki, and he hurled the cake with stunning accuracy; the cake spiraled perfectly and KERPOW! Smashed the happiest fan alive right in the kisser. This is a must-see video. Instead of choosing someone closer, Steve adhered to the wishes of a fan who had no doubt had his own trouble even getting there; giving us yet another stunning example of the love and lengths Steve goes through for his fans, who love him right back.
What do you get when you put DJ Carnage and Steve Aoki in a room together? In the words of Aoki, “You know what they say about the black and the yellow.”
Pittsburgh Steelers reference? All we know is two of the biggest players in the game right now are sitting in a room together giving us an insider’s perspective on Carnage‘s recent, already chart-topping collab with Tony Junior, “Michael Jordan.”
To quote Carnage, the record is “just super…old school, like hardstyle, like dutchy like just really f*cking…obnoxious.” With DJ support from Borgore, A-Trak, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Avicii, Diplo, Krewella, Nicky Romera, and Porter Robinson, as well as an explosive debut at Tomorrowland 2013 with heavy hitters such as Martin Solveig, Laidback Luke, and Steve Aoki dropping it in their sets, “Michael Jordan” will undoubtedly be one of the hottest festival anthems of 2013.

Travis Barker and Yelawolf Get an EDM Overhaul in ‘Push Em’ (Steve Aoki and Travis Barker Remix) – Song Premiere
Ubiquitous drummer Travis Barker and electro master Steve Aoki have joined forces on a remix of “Push ‘Em”, a track from Barker and rapper Yelawolf’s 2012 EP Psycho White.
“Travis Barker is hands down my favorite musician to work with,” Dim Mak label founder and veteran remixer Aoki tells Rolling Stone. “Whether it’s original material like we did on ‘Misfits’ or ‘Cudi the Kid,’ or doing this remix for his group. . . [Barker] has the best vocal samples to use for a stomping club record.”

In this final installment of our 3 part series, the Dim Mak crew takes a day off (from our oh so hard lives) to enjoy a second day on the yacht where we got a visit from Xtreme Fly Board. They were nice enough to let us steal one of their jet-skis as well as let us try to fly around the bay. After a nice day, we ended our long week at Ultra Music Festival. We followed Steve to UMF for his second weekend performance at the festival…
The party never stops when the Dim Mak crew is on scene. If you thought day 1 in Miami was wild then days 2 and 3 of WMC 2013 were nothing less than savage.
Things got wet and, well, weird as we hosted our highly anticipated Dim Mak Records Pool Party on Day 2. The Raleigh Hotel pool was full of babes in bikinis and dudes ready to dance their faces off. With rousing performances by Steve Aoki, Dzeko & Torres, Dirtyphonics, Laidback Luke, Keys N Krates, Yolanda Be Cool, Borgore & Carnage, Clockwork, and Benny Benassi, just to name a few, the day turned into night and back to day before anyone even realized it happened.
The insanity continued on day 3 as we made our way to the OWSLA Party at Red Bull House where we undoubtedly had our share of fun.
Make sure you stay tuned for “Dim Mak Invades Miami – Part 3” to catch us at Ultra Music Festival.
Dim Mak head honcho Steve Aoki has done it again with a brilliant collaboration featuring Southern Cali’s Dan Sena and vocal vixen Miss Palmer. The smashing single “Omega” is embellished with a punchy bassline, captivating vocals, and what about that drop!? This masterpiece of a track brings you all the hypnotizing musical elements that force you off your feet and gravitate you towards the dance floor.
