#44 - Steve Aoki (Creamfields)

For what seems like an eternity there's been a constant in our lives come the end of the British Summer - Creamfields. The Bank Holiday festival has always been the cornerstone of every dance music fan's calender and the success of the gathering continues to gather apace - it's currently on target to sell out for the sixth consecutive year. 2013 has seen the announcement of some pretty spectacular news surrounding the new production put into the main stage, so in honor of that we decided to get a mix form a DJ who understand the full force of the intensity Creamfields represents - Steve Aoki.


The American superstar has a reputation for excess (crowd surfing, cake throwing and that rider) but it's only allayed to the manner in which he relays this knack to clubbers, delivering sets that traverse house, electro, techno and dubstep for full frontal explosions of sound. This set showcases that full throttle hedonism, recorded when he made his Cream debut back in may this year.

Also spotlighted in this week's episode are the following five events:

#43 - The Head Gardener (Secret Garden Party)

We’ve been big fans of the Secret Garden Party here at Skiddle HQ for a few years now, the soiree rightfully attaining the status as one of the most loved boutique festivals in the UK. The attention to detail to the entire experience remains unrivalled and in terms of charm, they don’t come much better than SGP.

Although it’s a festival that’s well-endowed in the headliners department (2ManyDJs, Mistajam and David Rodigan number in this year's DJs) the family feel of their residents has been one of the key components of their musical make-up, headed up by The Head Gardener. So when we announced we’d be selling tickets for the gathering recently, we knew we had to spotlight his mix on our podcast series.

The podcast also throws some love to five other big events coming up over the next fortnight, with Leeds tyros mono_cult heading to London, Barcelona clubFACT doing the same, the Brazilica Festival afterparty in Liverpool, Australian bass fiend FLUME hitting Gorilla in Manchester and the monolithic Size in the Parkup in Scotland.
