steveaoki18.jpg Let them eat EDM cake

Superstar DJ Steve Aoki is renowned for covering his always-up-for-it punters in cake. He’s basically Mary Berry with better beats and he’s visiting Newcastle in January for fun fun fun.

Steve Aoki is a ringmaster par excellence, always whipping his crowds – which number into the thousands when he rocks out dance festivals – into a real frenzy, taking them to a place where wild abandon meets hedonistic high jinx. And he’s much in demand as a remixer too giving everyone from Michael Jackson to former One Direction member Louis Tomlinson a rubdown. His latest album, 2017’s Kolony, saw him heading off into some decidedly hip-hop pastures and working with the likes of Lil Yachty, Yellow Claw and DVBBS, but fizzy, commercial house is always going to be his bread and butter (and indeed his black forest gateau). Feed your face when he swoops into Newcastle this January.

Steve Aoki, Monday 29 January, O2 Academy, Newcastle, 7pm, £23. academymusicgroup.com/o2academynewcastle
