Dim Mak today counts more than 1,000 official releases from the biggest acts and most buzzing newcomers across EDM, indie rock, hip-hop, and beyond over its two-decades-plus discography. As a solo artist, Aoki boasts a lauded discography that includes: Wonderland (2012), his debut solo album, which garnered him his first-ever Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronica Album; the Neon Future series, which includes Neon Future I (2014, certified gold by the RIAA), Neon Future II (2015), and Neon Future III (November 2018) and the hip-hop centric Steve Aoki Presents Kolony (2017). Recognized by Forbes as one of the top 5 world’s highest paid DJ’s and the world’s hardest working DJ, Aoki is “one of the most in-demand entertainers in the world” (Billboard), counting more than 250 tour dates per year, with past performances at nearly every top festival around the world including Coachella, Ultra Music Festival, Lollapalooza, Fuji Rock Festival, Tomorrowland, Electric Daisy Carnival, and more. In 2012, Aoki founded THE AOKI FOUNDATION, which primarily supports organizations in the brain science and research areas with a specific focus on regenerative medicine and brain preservation.
FŪL was founded in 2004 by two musicians in Memphis, Tennessee who were unable to find travel bags with the right features to handle all their gear on the road, so they created their own. Their innovative designs – with personal style, tech-savvy functionality, quality materials and superior construction – were in immediate demand by other musicians. One of them, Justin Timberlake, became a partner and investor, and FŪL reached out beyond the music scene. Today, FŪL continues to update and innovate, expanding its designs for all kinds of creators and travelers, from business to adventure to leisure. What FŪL s our passion has not changed: personal style, tech-savvy functionality, quality materials and superior construction.
New York, NY – FŪL, the travel bag and gear brand founded by musicians, that provides comfortable, functional bags with a fashion edge, is proud to announce the launch of a new original collaboration “Steve Aoki FŪL” available exclusively at FootAction and online at SteveAokiFUL.com. The stylish, quality travel and lifestyle bags and luggage collection developed with the two-time Grammy-nominated DJ/producer, entrepreneur and philanthropist, creates an ideal synergy between music, culture, constant travel and functionality.
Created by Steve and the FŪL designers, this innovative and fashion-forward collection mirrors Steve’s creativity, streetwear influence, and eclectic fashion sense that is bold yet practical. The collection, created with the DJ’s demanding travel in mind, is the edgy, street-inspired FANG Collection, which utilizes Aoki’s signature Fang logo as its bold design motif.
“I’m constantly on a plane most days out of the year, so I thought it made a lot of sense to take my experiences and create my own signature bags and luggage,” said Aoki. “The team over at FŪL let my vision come to life and we crafted an original collection that I think will resonate with other musicians always on-the-go, my fans and the masses.”
“I’m not aware of another human on the planet who travels more than Steve,” stated Sam Hafif, CEO Concept One, “we’re happy to add some FŪL to his active lifestyle. His eye for design and travel experience made this collaboration a natural fit for FŪL.”
