Music mogul Steve Aoki is a mainstay in not only electronic, but the contemporary music culture of today. The founder of Dim Mak Records has worked with several of music’s top creatives, including MSTRKRFT, Bloc Party, Kid Cudi, will.i.am and many more. Given the range of talent he works with and the diversity of his sonic palate, it’s no wonder that Steve travels a lot to sate his musical appetite. That said, his essentials reflect a lifestyle of constant movement and communication. Steve laid out what keeps him running on a three-week trip in this edition of our ongoing Essentials feature.
