Australia’s leading EDM festival, Stereosonic has just concluded for 2014, following an epic journey of sold out events in Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane. The line up read like an EDM roll of honor; where Skrillex, Alesso and Dash Berlin rubbed shoulders with Calvin Harris, Disclosure and Steve Aoki.
Steve Aoki is a EDM DJ who scored high at number 10 in the Top 100 DJs this year. Steve will be playing on Saturday the 7th of Febuary. The Dim Mak label boss and Grammy nominated DJ/Producer is back and bringing with him his unique energetic circus vibe. As one of America’s biggest touring artists, 2014 has proved to be his busiest yet, combined with the release of Part 1 of his 2nd studio album ‘Neon Future’, with Part 2 scheduled for release early 2015.
Typically when you think “Dim Mak,” you associate it with Steve Aoki’s imprint and its extensive roster of artists. An impressive piece of the Dim Mak puzzle is the unique, creative approach to merchandise. The label offers styles – beyond tees and hats – in exclusive capsules that are designed with the Dim Mak artist in mind. Tiernan Cowling, Creative Director of Dim Mak apparel and merchandise, attributes music as the muse behind the custom designs.

Over the past few years, what started off in illegal warehouses has blossomed into a multi billion dollar, worldwide phenomenon. However, it's no secret that with main stream success, an onslaught of underground hatred tends to follow. But is this hatred needed, or is this hatred even well founded, more over is hatred ever well founded? I would say "no," it's nothing more than petty elitism.
Manchester-born stadium destroyer D.O.D is all about the drop. Layering baile funk techno beats into screeching EDM bangers and building samples, hooks and breakdowns to rupturing effect, you can watch his impressively worked hour-long live DJ set on DJ Mag TV.
