No? Yes? Isn't he the one who came up with that Hoover sound that was pretty popular.
No. The Hoover sound over 2 decades old - it was a preset on a Roland Alpha Juno - and was popularized by a number of groups working in the early 1990's. I'd never heard Steve Aoki's music before, but after spending 2 minutes on YouTube I can tell you with confidence that his music is 100% ITB brostep.

Yep. And the name of that preset is a reference to a 22 year old track that's almost as obnoxious as Aoki's music...
I don't think it really matters, the hoover sounds was made popular recentlyish but the bloody beetroots 'warp 1.9' who were signed to 'dim mak' steve aoki's label. His stuff sounds think like analogue but really you could make that kick sound just in software and you could make all them leads in almost any vst. Its more the processing that'll make it nice and round/fat. Or you can just get a Moog LP and not worry about processing...
Having listened to some of the stuff on this thread, i can't say i'm that impressed either. So to be honest, i don't really care what he uses.. lol. Having said that, if he uses analog equipment, i wish it'd be in the hands of someone who can actually make good music with it.
i had no idea this guy was even famous, he dj'ed at some small indie rock n elektro club in hollywood, cinespace, or something like that, nothing noteworthy about any of it, it was more of a bar then a club,
