Steven Hiroyuki Aoki

Japanese-American electro house legend, record producer, DJ and music executive, Steven Hiroyuki Aoki, is equally renowned for his energy-infused, mesmerizing style as he is for his commercial success. In 2012, Pollstar designated Aoki as the highest grossing dance artist in North America from tours. Even as a young impressario student at the University of California, Santa Barbara, Aoki already had his own record label in his early 20s, named Dim Mak, after his childhood hero, Bruce Lee. In the years since, he has broken numerous records, including but not limited to three in the Guinness Book of World Records – “longest crowd cheer,” “most amount of glow sticks for thirty seconds,” and “most traveled musician in one year,” with 161 shows in 41 countries in 2014. In line with his industrious approach to live tours, Aoki is also the central character of the documentary I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead.
