Were it not for Steve Aoki, we would have no Dim Mak Records (founded in
L.A. in 1996), and, therefore, possibly none of some of the most
important electro dance music of the mid-2000s, including but not
limited to Canadian house duo MSTRKRFT, rockers Bloc Party or possibly
even New York avantists Battles, whose 2004 “B EP” was distributed by
said record label.
