Not to make anyone feel like total crap, but the 2012 mtvU Woodie Awards are gonna seriously KILL (in the good way), and you should kind of be super sad if you can’t attend. How can anyone in their right mind not have a major flip-out about a show that’s got Childish Gambino, Santigold and the recently announced addition of Steve Aoki? That’s like one-stop indie cred shopping.
MTV was lucky to nab the Cali DJ since he’s usually busy collaborating with peeps like Wynter Gordon (“Ladi Dadi“) and/or spinning at super exclusive parties you could never get into. Aside from owning his own record label, Aoki is also an in-demand producer known for his dope remixes. So we’re hoping he’ll concoct a little something extra special for his Woodies performance, especially considering he’s nominated for the EDM Effect Woodie for his 2011 jam “Turbulence.” A Lil Jon cameo, perhaps?! Fingers crossed.
