We’ve previously chronicled much-impersonated celebrity DJ Steve Aoki’s cherished and/or controversial tradition of throwing cake at his fans. Now it looks like Aoki is henceforth limiting his deployment of projectile baked goods to his own headlining shows and for the most part won’t be launching sugary carbohydrates skyward at music festivals anymore. To commemorate this decision, he even wrote a new song called “Cake Face” for all the real cake heads out there. Here’s a statement Aoki released about this Very Important Matter:
To start the New Year I’m making some new changes and have decided I’ll no longer be caking fans at most festivals. There might be an exception here or there but for the most part I’ll be saving the CAKE for my headline shows, keeping it exclusive for the die hard fans. So if you want to get caked, come to one of my headline shows like the Neon Future Experience that is happening across the USA and Canada in Feb/March, or at my upcoming Manchester and London shows, or in Vegas and Ibiza. And to show my love to all the fans around the world that love the cake I wrote a song especially for YOU, properly titled CAKEFACE! It’s up now and free to download at soundcloud.com/steveaoki. Love you to infinity and back. Now let’s go forward into the neon future!!
To repeat: His New Year’s resolution is to stop throwing cake at music festivals. So if you show up at a music festival this year expecting to get caked by Steve Aoki, that’s too fucking bad! Listen to “Cake Face” below. Cake cake cake cake cake cake cake.
