Pacha presents Steve Aoki
Following the the new ideas and the new point of view brought at Pacha La Pineda by Midnight at Work and B-Free group for this year’s season, we’re proud to present a new international session.
Steve Aoki, the founder of Dim Mak, will play again this summer at Pacha La Pineda, the emblematic discotheque of la Costa Daurada.
Steve Aoki is a DJ and also the founder of Dim Mak Records, which has counted leading indie rock bands such as Gossip, Bloc Party, the Kills, and the Rakes among its stable of signees.
The son of wealthy restauranteur Rocky Aoki, he is of Japanese heritage and calls Los Angeles home.
In 2007 he released his first official mix CD, Pillowface & His Airplane Chronicles, on Thrive Records.
In 2009 his remix work brought rapper Drake’s single “Forever” to the dancefloor, while 2010 saw him release the “I’m in the House” single with Zuper Blahq.
By the end of 2011, the early fruits of sessions for his debut album, Wonderland, had materialized as the singles “Earthquakey People” — a collaboration with Weezer singer Rivers Cuomo — and “Tornado,” on which Aoki combined forces with the multi-award-winning Tiësto.
In 2012 he released his first EP, It’s the End of the World as We Know It. More collaborations followed in 2013, with Aoki reworking a Linkin Park track for the group’s remix album Recharged. The resulting “A Light That Never Comes” was released as a single alongside several more remixes.
In 2014 he announced details of a forthcoming album titled Neon Future. Marketed as a two-part record, the first installment arrived later in the year with Fall Out Boy, will.i.am, and Waka Flocka Flame among its guests. Neon Future, Vol. 2 followed in 2015 with guest appearances from Rivers Cuomo, Snoop Dogg, and J.J. Abrams.
