Silent Morning

Earlier this month, Steve Aoki was in Austin to play SXSW, and Rolling Stone's cameras were there to shadow the DJ. From his morning preparation to his evening set at Austin Music Hall (a venue he'd sold out only five months prior) and his label's late night afterparty at the notorious Illmore, Aoki stayed busy but still found time to pose with fans and do a signature "Aoki jump" in front of the Texas State Capitol.

All captions by Aoki himself. Of the above picture, he writes, "Getting my morning started by creating my setlist for the show that night."
