Countdown to Ultra Music Festival – Steve Aoki
Steve Aoki is one of the hottest DJ’s out there in the electro and house genres right now. His fast paced and upbeat tunes have become absolutely essential at any local rager. Steve has won many awards including Best Mix Album: Billboard 2008, and has risen to fame with tracks such as “Pursuit of Happiness Remix”, “I’m in the House”, and perhaps most recognizably “Warp 1.9” ft. The Bloody Beat Roots. Most notably, Steve runs Dim Mak Records, which has boosted the careers of acts like Bloc Party, MSTRKRFT, Back in late August of 2010 when I was just a young ripe new freshman I saw Steve Aoki at the Orpheum theater during welcome week for his Steve Aoki Does College Tour. Needless to say it was one of the most incredible shows of my life, which included inflatable pool crowd surfing and Champaign showers. This world-famous DJ will melt your face and leave your ears pulsing for days – if you have a chance to catch him on his Spring 2011 tour I highly recommend it.
For the Ultra crowd, catch Steve “Kid Millionaire” Aoki on Saturday, March 26th at the Carl Cox and Friends stage after techno junkie Yousef and dutch crowd pleaser Afrojack. If you really craving some Aoki, check out the Dim Mark After Party at Cameo Nightclub on Saturday night with special guests Dada Life, Bart B More, Bingo Players and more! You can also catch him Sunday, March 27th on the Live Stage between two of the most anticipated acts of the whole weekend, Fake Blood and MSTRKRFT
