Well, the votes are in and It's Official: Steve Aoki has been "America's Best DJ" honor for 2015, according to DJ Times and Pioneer DJ.
Aoki's win is mostly the result of votes cast online at DJ Times' America’s Best DJ website, with additional in-person voting at this summers' America’s Best DJ Summer Tour events, which included Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival, Detroit’s Movement Festival, and Chicago’s Spring Awakening Festival.
The LA-based DJ/producer – who next month releases NEON FUTURE ODYSSEY, a deluxe package that includes both his Neon Future I and II albums along with bonus tracks – will be honored October 11 at Omnia Nightclub in San Diego at the ABDJ Award Ceremony/Closing Party. Aoki will also be presented with a unique trophy, a personalized, gold-plated Pioneer DJM-900nexus mixer.
“I am incredibly humbled and honored to be chosen as this year’s winner, says Aoki. "First and foremost, I want to thank all my fans for their support over the years. I am so grateful that I continue to have the best fans in the world…Words cannot express how appreciative I am of this award and I look forward to pursuing my passion as a DJ for decades to come.”
Aoki will be taking over the title from 2014 winner, Markus Schulz.
