Steve Aoki + Special Guests – October 24th – The Metro, Sydney

Written by Daniel Clarke on October 8, 2009

Lock up your daughters Sydney!! Oct 24th, hipster hero, globetrotting superstar DJ, label owner, fashion designer and all round LA party muse Steve Aoki is bringing his riotous DIM MAK party to rock the Metro Theatre all night, for one night only – with support from surprise international guests and a tonne of the best locals TBA…

The man behind Dim Mak Records; who broke artists like Bloc Party, The Kills, Klaxons, MSTRKRFT, The Bloody Beetroots, Mystery Jets, The Rakes, The Gossip and more, is also the same man behind the production moniker Weird Science that has remixed Peaches, Snoop Dogg & Bloc Party. Under his own name, Aoki has remixed The Killers, Robin Thicke, Lenny Kravitz, Duran Duran and Timbaland, S.P.A., All American Rejects and Chris Cornell

Add to that his orginal productions in collaboration with artists from Boys Noize, The Faint, D.i.M., The Bloody Beetroots & Junkie Xl, to Armand Van Helden, Laidback Luke & more and it becomes clear that Steve Aoki is a pretty huge force in modern electronic music. On the fashion side, Aoki has developed lines for KR3W Apparel, Supra Footwear, headphones for WESC, sunglasses with KSUBI, headwear with NEFF, bags with Burton, and in 09 a brand new mens/women’s range with his supermodel sister Devon Aoki. in between all this, and touring all over the world as in demand DJ in his own right, the man is getting into mischief with his cohort Cobrasnake and living it up in LA throwing weekly parties that are notoriously off-the-wall, so you know he’s going to bring it for the Metro theatre!! Ready? 1-2 WARP WARP!!!

Announcing 2 massive international supports: One who you may not have heard of but definitely would have heard is prolific producer/remixer DJ BAM BAM (Chicago) “This guy is sick. Ever-for real- had your head and ears jacked by heavy dirty pounding techno? Bam almost blew off the speakers last time I saw him, with a blend of Chicago jackin’ techno & ghetto. He mixes, scratches, cuts like no other techno DJ’s on this planet, he’s berserk, fast, furious, aggressive. He could easily give a solid lesson to many, many other pretentious DJ’s around… He’s definitely pushing the boundaries to the max in techno, as a DJ as well as a producer”

AND then one who may not have heard yet but must have heard of by now, blog hyped Los Angeles-based-duo LAZRtag: Boasting a unique duo laptop set up, they’ve eliminated the use of typical media players like turntables and CD-J’s. Instead, they get impressive effects using customized software and hardware to create a sound described as took ¾ cups of distorted guitars, ½ a cup of funky basslines, a pinch of disco, garnished with some house! Also added to the lineup are local bangers Ember, SMS, Bloody Disco, Down n Dirty DJ’s, Elmo is Dead, Vengeance, Dorkatronique, Lights out

This promises to be another massive metro party by music people, the perfect warm up to a long hot summer of awesome music events!!
