Steve Aoki Breaks Down What He Does for Hot 97

Interviews like this always crack me up; with EDM expanding into so many different realms, I love hearing DJs from “our world” breaking down what they do for, say, the hip-hop realm, where the role of a DJ has a different meaning (and history) than it might for today’s EDM stars. During his recent New York press tour (which included announcements about his forthcoming album and MSG show), Steve Aoki hit the Hot 97 Morning Show with Waka Flocka to break down a number of points about his career and performance, from linking with Flocka and what an EDM DJ does to his biggest remixes, his father, and the origins of “caking” and “rafting.”
