Aoki was one of the earlier DJs in the scene who helped bring EDM to a larger American audience in the late ’00s (does anyone else remember blog house?), and with It’s The End Of The World As We Know It, he aims to remind us what was so invigorating about his style the first time around.Play On Soundcloud
Steve recently suggested in an interview that he wasn’t much interested in putting together full-length albums, but thankfully he has no problem with EPs to tide us over between live sets. Steve’s lengthy world tour wraps up in Chicago on Saturday, Dec 15th, after which he’ll have a couple weeks to chill with his dog before taking off again for some New Year’s events.Play On Soundcloud
In other news, Aoki’s guilty-pleasure “Aokify” app just released a holiday-themed update – and best of all, it’s free!

The DJZ/10 is a collection of ten DJs that we think you should know about now. Some of them are already familiar to you, others you may have never heard of. The list is not based on (1) a secret computer algorithm, (2) social media popularity, or (3) payola. Every month or so we get together to decide if somebody from the broader A…Z directory is about to break out and should be included in the DJZ/10, or if somebody already on the list, for that matter, is “phoning it in” and deserved to be replaced by another DJ who is more worthy.×
