While the bass shook the pool water at the Raleigh Hotel, booties in short shorts bounced up and down, and so did Steve Aoki, who looked like a little kid at Christmas behind the decks. His Dim Mak label's 2013 Winter Music Conference day party brought out not only those on his label, but OGs like Benny Benassi and Afrojack who made cameos during Aoki's set.
Amidst the EDM mayhem, we sat down with Dim Mak's hot Canadian foursome Azari & III for a seriously goofy talk. Right after Azari's Alixander III showed us how GHB-enhanced dancing looks, Aoki crashed the interview. We discussed opening a cake company, Diplo in a hamster ball, and someone, not gonna say whom, showed us some Speedo ass.
