STEVE AOKI : STEVE JOBS music video



Steve Jobs tributes may occasionally seem like gimmicks, attempts to ride a trend. But electronic musician Steve Aoki’s new track, called “Steve Jobs,” is an homage to a man he calls a “revolutionary.”

“Whether I’m producing music or I’m playing out, whether I’m connecting with my fans through social media, without Steve Job’s creations, it would be a completely different place for me,” he says.

The track “Steve Jobs” was already written when the co-founder of Apple died on Oct. 5, 2011. However, Aoki calls the decision to devote the track to the late Jobs “an epiphany,” mainly because he’s never devoted a track to anyone before.

“I buy probably four or five laptops a year because I’m DJing and destroying my computers when I’m playing,” Aoki tells Mashable. “My first computer was an Apple computer. I have an iPad, an iPhone — I’m an Apple geek. I love Steve Jobs and what he’s done for the future.”

Steve Aoki‘s new video for the track, which appears on his album Wonderland, shows footage of a recent performance at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom, to be released as a concert film later this year. The video demonstrates the relationship between performer and attendee, what Aoki calls “a synergy and a language.” But he acknowledges that the connection must extend beyond the confines of a concert hall.

Citing Twitter, Instagram and YouTube — where he constantly posts video updates — Aoki attempts to maintain this important bond, and credits his fans with his success. He also acknowledges Jobs, not with creating the technology, but with making it easy to use.

“From producing music to playing shows, and also connecting with fans and keeping it as convenient as possible. What he did was make it more accessible,” he says.

Mashable is exclusively premiering the video for “Steve Jobs” by Steve Aoki ft. Angger Dimas. Check it out and let us know what you think.

クロアチアで毎年開催されているベース・ミュージックの祭典、Outlook festival
ローンチ・パーティーが、昨年に引き続き日本でも開催する事が決定!!
Outlook festival2012がクロアチアにて8月31日から4日間の開催に向け、
世界各国でローンチ・パーティーが行われる 。ここ日本では 昨年に引き続き東京、
浜松町のTABLOID で5月26日(土)、27日(日)の2日間。
世界中のローンチ・パーティーの中でも日本は最大規模。このOUTLOOK、従来のフェスやパーティー との違いはREGGAE、DUB、DUBSTEP、JUNGLE、DRUM N BASS等のベース・ミュージックが主体にありその周辺のジャンルに必要不可欠なサウンドシステムによる圧倒的な「音圧」が最大のウリであり、ヨーロッパのシーンでは当然のことではあることだが、ここ日本ではまだ馴染みがない。「ベース・ミュージックは聴くモノではなく体感するモノ」という言葉を掲げ、昨年末TABLOIDにて開催された「SOUND SLUGGER」でオーディエンスにその言葉を証明した。今回のパーティーでベース・ミュージックの真髄をこのパーティーを通して日本に!世界基準のクオリティを体が覚えたら
いままでの音響では物足りなくなる筈!

REPORT 15/05 : KAWS : The nature of need @Galerie Perrotin - Hong Kong

Photobucket

La galerie est située au 17eme etage du 50 connaugh road @ central, près de l'IFC. Entrée inondée de magnifiques bouquets, tous plus beaux les uns que les autres, célébrant l'ouverture de la galerie française. Nice smell La surface totale du lieu est grande, plusieurs petites salles et une vue sur le harbour. TOP Champagne, cocktail, vin et petits fours pour tout le monde, et il y en avait du monde!!

L'expo de Kaws:
plusieurs toiles (des dizaines) tout en longueur avec bien sur, des couleurs, des traits droits, des courbes et une finition parfaite. Travail très beau, varié et clean. Une superbe toile tape à l'oeil grâce aux traits fluo et ses couleurs vives, magique. Un gros bonhomme type michelin, tout rouge et qui court vers toi. Les 2 mains coupées, avec le sang degoulinant: ce qui est genial c'est que ça en devient beau et pas du tout hardcore ou malsain. C'est rigolo. 3 cercles -oeil main bouche. Simple efficace et dimension des oeuvres parfaite, ni trop grand ni trop petit. Le fly correspond au print de l'oeil sur fond gris.
