Yup, you read that right. The one and only cake-tossing, record producing, DJ-playing, electro house musician is performing in Shanghai this Thursday! Get ready to be blown away by some of the hottest tracks China will ever hear (and get caked)!!
We're not just bluffing about how great Steve Aoki is-- in fact, he's got a lot of achievements under his belt. In 2012, Pollstar named Steve Aoki as the highest grossing dance artist in North America from tours. He has also collaborated with major producers and vocalists, such as will.i.am, Afrojack, LMFAO, Linkin Park, Iggy Azalea, Lil Jon, Laidback Luke, Louis Tomlinson, and Fall Out Boy.
Aoki has released several Billboard-charting studio albums as well, notably "Wonderland," which was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronica Album in 2013. We also bet you didn't know that he is also the founder of the Steve Aoki Charitable Fund, which raises money for global humanitarian relief organisations.
And as for this year? Aoki rose from the EDM ashes with his fourth studio album, "Kolony," which was released earlier this July. More recently, he produced a remix of K-Pop group BTS's song "Mic Drop" featuring rapper Desiigner, which was released on November 24th.
His most iconic act during his on-stage performances, other than throwing himself on the crowd on a floating boat, is 'caking' (LITERALLY) the crowd with MASSIVE CAKES.
