On last week’s episode of the R.O.A.D. Podcast, the crew sat down with DJ/producer Thee Mike B. The Los Angeles native explained how he founded the legendary Banana Split party with DJ AM and Steve Aoki.
Watch an excerpt above and the full episode here.
Aoki is no stranger to crossovers, having linked up with Daddy Yankee, Play-N-Skillz, and Elvis Crespo on “Azukita” in February. The same can be said for Nicky, who was featured on the remix of Jaden Smith‘s “Icon” and the Latin remix of Post Malone‘s “rockstar.”
“Jaleo” also received an accompanying visual. Filmed in Miami, the video shows Nicky and Aoki at a pool party surrounded by beautiful women.

Steve Aoki and Yellow Claw have shared a video for “Lit,” their trap collaboration featuring Gucci Mane and T-Pain. Filmed at the Dim Mak Manor, the visual shows Aoki and the two rappers getting lit with a contortionist, a belly dancer, and a fire breather. Young Dolph also makes an appearance.
The single, which was one of DJcity’s most downloaded tracks of July, appears on Aoki’s newly released album, Kolony.

Steve Aoki has dropped a visual for “How Else,” his trap anthem featuring Atlanta rappers Rich The Kid and ILoveMakonnen. Though it has received more than 1.6 million plays on SoundCloud since January, the track isn’t what you’d expect from Aoki and has been overlooked by many DJs. Watch the video above and download the song on DJcity.
From DJ Jazzy Jeff to The Gaslamp Killer, Serato has a reputation for producing videos that feature some of the world’s most respected and forward-thinking DJs. The company has expanded their subject matter though, as their latest set of videos feature the immensely successful yet controversial Steve Aoki. The Dim Mak boss has apparently been a Serato user since the mid-2000s and relies on it heavily.
While most videos about Aoki usually focus on his growing empire, the first in Serato’s two-part series has a much different tone. Within minutes, the superstar DJ/producer admits that he’s one of the most criticized DJs and addresses the backlash.
The second video is more interesting from a technical standpoint, as it features Aoki’s tour manager Dillon Anderson discussing Aoki’s DJ setup and why Serato Video is crucial to his performance.
Watch them below and check out Aoki’s profile on Serato’s website.
