Who Wants Some Cake?
Ranked Best DJ in America by DJ Times in 2015, Aoki is renowned for his pandemonium-inducing sets and whiplash-inspiring travel schedule, averaging more than 250 tour dates per year including headliner slots at summer music festivals throughout the world as well as prestigious residencies at mega-clubs in Las Vegas and Ibiza. As a recording artist, Aoki’s 2014 studio album Neon Future I—which soared to No. 1 on the Dance/Electronic Album chart—features the Gold-certified single “Delirious (Boneless)” with Chris Lake and Tujamo featuring Kid Ink.
A nose-to-the-grindstone DIY work ethic that has propelled Aoki as an entrepreneur and performer, ultimately placing him in the top five on Forbes’ Top DJ Money Earner list for three years running, and winning the respect of his superstar DJ peers who favor terms such as “force of nature” and “machine” to describe Aoki’s relentless drive.
