"I work very hard when I'm on the road, and I always fit in time for exercise on a daily basis. On the Aokify America Tour, I started the Aoki Bootcamp and had Borgore and Waka join me on these exercise sessions. I'm here riding a bike in the parking lot behind the Shrine. Not exactly Bootcamp, but a fun way to keep my heart rate pumping." (All quotes by Steve Aoki)

Kid Cudi Meets Mama Aoki

"I had my entire family come out to the show, and I was especially happy to have my mom there by my side. It's always great to have her meet my friends."

"Me and the homies backstage before I hit the stage. Mike [Shinoda] from Linkin Park, [Kid] Cudi, Waka [Flocka Flame] and Dim Mak's own Carnage. Solid crew."

Neon Future

"The Kryomen coming straight from the future. Having Kryoman walking around the stage and blasting the crowds with CO2 added a great live element to the tour."

Time for Cake

"The moment the crowd looks forward to all night: Cake Time. The fans are getting really creative with all the 'Cake Me' signs. I love it. Some of my favorites are the birthday messages. Gotta give cake to the birthday boy/girl!"

Cudi

"Surprise guests are always exciting to have at my shows. Was so awesome having my longtime friend Kid Cudi stop by and help rock the crowd. He had everyone jumping (see the sign?)!"

Waka Warms Up the Crowd

"My dude Waka killed it throughout the entire Aokify America Tour. He was a highlight during every single stop on the tour. The fans really loved him. He brought a new energy fans aren't used to at electronic shows. He spends half his set in the crowd like a madman. He really is the best representation of this rap/electronic bridge we're building. He even calls himself the King of Rap EDM."
