Las Vegas, Surrender Your Chips to Steve Aoki!

Tim Gauthier

Las Vegas Review-Journal talks on Steve Aoki’s residency at Surrender, include his Vegas side-hobby; Poker.

DJ-producer Steve Aoki describes himself as “a poker nut” who mingles with the pros, winning as much as $20,000 and losing as big as $5,000.
Aoki — performing tonight at Encore’s Surrender — says the adrenaline surge he gets from winning is the same rush he gets from recording a song.

“When I finish a track that’s an absolute banger,” he says, “you get that same feeling as when you go all-in on a hand, someone follows suit, and you know you’ve beat them.”

Bruce Lee+Malcolm X+Music = Dim Mak’s Revolutionary ‘Wonderland’

Tim Gauthier

Buzzine.com got with the boss-man Steve Aoki to discuss the recent (unexpected) success of “Wonderland”; the remarkable new full-length album to reach a height of Number 9 on the iTunes Top 10 Albums.

“Ever since his college days at UC Santa Barbara, Steve Aoki has been something of a modern-day renaissance man. Party Promoter, Producer, DJ, Label Owner, Activist, Designer, and Manager are all titles that all could be reasonably added to his Dim Mak business card, if he so desired, but when Buzzine’s Stefan Goldby headed into the Hollywood Hills to visit with Steve at his Wonderland Studios, the stated topic was something new: Aoki’s brand new debut artist album of all-original tracks.
Pulling together contributions from musicians as wide-ranging as Travis Barker, Lil Jon, Rivers Cuomo (Weezer), Kid Cudi, The Exploited, and Lovefoxxx (CSS), Wonderland serves as both notice of the arrival of a major new component of an already successful career, and a peek into the world of its creator. Just hours after the album was released digitally, and fresh off a plane from Vegas, Steve Aoki shared the details of his journey so far, beginning with music and spinning out into his thoughts on the music industry in 2012; the past, present, and future of Dim Mak’s world; and the philosophy and inspiration that his independent entertainment empire is founded upon.”

Purchase your copy of Wonderland today, available on both Beatport and iTunes.

‘Listen With Friends’ Facebook’s Newest Music App

Tim Gauthier

Facebook on Thursday began rolling out a new feature aimed at ramping up the social experience of listening to music online.

The feature, called “Listen With Friends”—lets users listen along with any friend that playing music.
“You can listen to the same song, at the exact same time—so when your favorite vocal part comes in you can experience it together, just like when you’re jamming out at a performance or dance club,” Alexandre Roche, product designer at Facebook, wrote in a blog post Thursday.

When a Facebook user is listening to a song, a music note will appear next to their name in the chat sidebar and the real-time news ticker. To listen in, users can simply hover over that friend’s name, then click the “Listen With” button.

Both Spotify and Rdio are (currently) the only two digital music service providers to support this new branch of Facebook-encorporated social media. However a recent report from ZDnet has confirmed that more will soon follow, making music-discovery a more ‘friendly’ experience.
