The road to a successful career making or producing music is fraught with challenges, not least the fundamental difficulty that many face developing a sound or USP of their own. In the wise words of this month’s cover star, however, often the best way to find your voice as a musician or a producer is to allow yourself the option of making mistakes. “Finding a sound takes time,” superstar Steve Aoki tells us. “Finding my sound took a long time, actually. I found my sound through trial and error.” Steve speaks to us at length in this issue about his astonishing career and how he successfully operates as a musician, DJ and producer simultaneously in an ever-changing industry. Elsewhere this issue, in the first of a new series, Adam Crute explores key…

BOOTH GROOVES Our resident Eurorack polymath Dave Gale was on the ground at Superbooth 2019, which took place at FEZ Berlin in May – here, he presents his top picks from Europe’s premier modular-synth show… A side from the bigger, more ‘mainstream’ releases at the Superbooth show from the likes of IK Multimedia, Steinberg and Pioneer, there was a gamut of products from the Eurorack world that hooked my attention. It might have been slightly colder than the Berlin seasonal average on the outside, but inside, SB19’s temperature was rising to the tune of electronic bleeps and clangs, with an ever-increasing number of Eurorack companies vying for attention. Among the gathered company, Random Source demonstrated the latest in its Serge line-up, with a Resonant Equalizer, with the other news being that the company’s…

Steve Aoki is such a huge star in EDM, it can be hard to think of him as a teenager struggling to find success in a hardcore-punk band. But that’s exactly how he got his start in the music industry. And his popularity now is in no small part due to his persistence with Dim Mak Records, the DIY label he set up in 1996 to launch bands in the hardcore scene that he was a part of. Both Aoki and Dim Mak have evolved enormously since then. The label, having had its first taste of mainstream success releasing Bloc Party’s Silent Alarm in the US, is now a major force in breaking new talents including The Chainsmokers and Zedd and releasing records for the likes of Battles, Gossip and MSTRKRFT.…

label successes

Aoki’s success on stage and in the studio is paralleled by his success as Dim Mak Records’ owner. Working with his trusted team of A&Rs, the label has had a string of huge releases. He namechecks Riot Ten, Bear Grillz, Tisoki, Keys N Krates and Matroda, but focuses on two in particular. “The Chainsmokers was quite possibly the biggest signing we’ve ever had. We signed them from day one from their first single Selfie and released two singles thereafter,” says Aoki. “And Max Styler, an artist we’ve been supporting I think at this point for five, six years. His sound has matured and it’s evolving in a way I really feel is the future of a lot of different sounds of music, so I’m really interested in the Max Styler direction…
