All posts related to DJ Steve Aoki on Guest of a Guest for DJ Steve Aoki.
As long as the era of the superstar electronic dance music DJ remains in full swing, so too will the debate over what, exactly, these guys do during a live show. While we'd never question the talent involved in producing a hit single, even Deadmau5 has admitted recently that most big-name EDM DJ's just "press play" and then spend a whole live show fiddling with their laptops. But don't fear, there's still one DJ out there who will make sure you're getting your money's worth. His name is Steve Aoki, and he played Surrender in Vegas this weekend. Let's see what he does different than most DJs. More»

I always knew that St. Patrick's Day meant different things to different people, but I just kind of figured that meant that some people liked Jameson more than Bushmills, or maybe that you stuck to beer in the early afternoon if you had some place to go at night. I didn't really figure it meant attending a massive rave in San Bernardino and seeing Steve Aoki do a show with a special appearance by Travis Barker. But as you can see in these awesome Cobrasnake photos of Beyond Wonderland, that's exactly how it went down this past weekend. More»
If all the party-minded teenagers disappeared from your town and/or city over the last 4 days, it's probably because world-famous DJ/producer/Dim Mak label head Steve Aoki just kicked off the "Deadmeat" tour, where Aoki and Datsik will spend the next few months selling out historic theaters and concert arenas around the country. Now, as far as the various ways children rebel, attending the odd electro rave or two isn't as bad as, say, joining the Young Republicans club or something: sure, they're bound to experiment a little bit, but that's going to happen anyway, and at least they're partying under the guidance of a master DJ.

[Photos via] While we've been mourning the end of summer by taking vacations, visiting family and proving that you can fit an entire bottle of wine into the new size cup at Starbucks, The Cobra Snake has been following his good buddy DJ Steve Aoki around the country as he headlines his very own Dim Mak stage at Identity Festival. But like all good SoCal boys, they know when it's time to come home, and over the weekend the Festival returned to blow the doors off of the Hollywood Palladium.
via hamptons.guestofaguest: The Hamptons club scene is limited for a couple reasons. Not everyone out here is totally into it and plus, they are only open a few months out of the year. Most are constantly going under name changes and not all of them can stand the test of time. Those who do survive each have their own personalities, crowds and their own quirks.

The club selection in the Hamptons is quite limited for a couple reasons. Not everyone out here is totally into the club scene and plus, they are only open a few months out of the year. Most are constantly going under name changes thanks to changes in ownership, and not all of them can stand the test of time. But among the ones who do survive, which are few, they each have developed their own personalities, their own crowds and their own quirks. The clubs in the Hamptons are kind of like their own high school clique and that is why I have given them superlatives, to better explain each club's niche.
Unlike most experiences where you get groped by a gigantic group of strangers, crowd surfing doesn't usually leave you depressed, hostile and in need of extensive therapy. In fact, quite the opposite: crowd surfing expresses a deep connection between an audience that's completely grooving on the show, and the performers who want to immerse themselves in that love. Only, like monogamy or The Strokes, crowd surfing has become a little too stale and boring lately. Or at least, it had before Steve Aoki and friends played the Palladium last weekend. More»
Happy St. Patrick's Day, Irish people! I have a secret to confess: I got a head-start to observing the holiday with some Jameson last night. And I wasn't the only one! You see, while we merely tolerate the drunkenness of the Irish for the vast majority of the calendar year, this is the time where we actively appease them, hoping they'll go away until year. But that never works so we must confront the countless examples of people getting into the Irish spirit (read: tanked) before the high holiday itself! Shameful? Absolutely. Worth documenting in photos? Absolutely. More»

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
