We met up with Steve Aoki at EDC! He tells us it’s been five years since he’s played at Edc. We also discuss what makes this festival a special one to him, the Aoki Playhouse, and his next album! One of the fathers of modern EDM, Steve Aoki has paved the way for what it means to be an electronic DJ. Born in 1977, Steve Aoki is a Japanese-American EDM guru born in Miami, but found his love for house music in California. In 2009, Aoki began topping charts with hit remixes to all stars like Drake, Will.I.Am and Michael Jackson, which helped put his name on the map. Aoki did not stop there, releasing albums that would top the charts and make Aoki a common household name. Now a days he has been working on other business endeavours, and has even been seen opening his own pizza restaurant conveniently called “PizzAoki.” Steve Aoki has worked with almost every big name in Hollywood, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.
