STEVE AOKI: "THE MOST POPULAR DJS DON'T EVEN HAVE AN ALBUM OUT"

In a new interview, Dim Mak boss and notorious cake hurler Steve Aoki claimed that it's not necessary to release an album every year in order to be successful. He also shed some light in his upcoming releases.

According to the DJ, you only have to release a few songs a year to maintain your status and credibility.

"The great thing about the dance/EDM world is it's not like you need an album every year. You just have to release a few songs that translate to a global audience. And that’s why some of the best, most popular DJs don’t even have an album out," he said.

Aoki went on to praise chart-topper Avicii for his single releases over the past few years: "Avicii doesn't have an album out but his music translates across cultures and languages to people all over the world."

As well as talking about the EDM scene, Aoki also spoke about his forthcoming collaborations and releases.

"I have a collaboration with Knife Party called 'Piledriver' coming out and a record called 'Singularities' coming out at some point," he said.

So there you go kids. Make a banger. Claim world domination. Get a licence to chuck cream cakes at squealing teenage girls. Sorted.
