It’s cakes, gentlemen, it’s cakes. Steve Aoki returned to fatten MEO Sudoeste with vigorous doses of sugar and love


One might think that after all the stints of superstar DJ Steve Aoki on Portuguese stages over the last decade, his sets had less impact, but what happens is that the American artist continues to attract a true following. that is constantly renewed. Moments after, in an exclusive interview with BLITZ backstage at the festival, he had lavish praise on the MEO Sudoeste audience, Aoki once again toasted Zambujeira with an energetic performance that, of course, had as its high point the traditional throw of cakes in the faces of the most passionate and desirous fans. “You have to prove to me that you want the cake more than the person next to you”, he provoked, close to an hour and a half after the performance began. What followed was an endless parade of cakes, which went flying straight out of her hands into a sugar-craving human mass.

The recipe, before the cakes, actually didn’t stray too far from that of sets heard in the past and on that same stage. Mixing songs from his vintage with pop classics from the past, Aoki always kept his energy at a comfortable level, not slipping too far into aggression or letting the audience slack off. Starting from behind, with a ‘No Beef’ released in 2011 with Afrojack and with the participation of Miss Palmer, the DJ and producer took the opportunity to show some news: a provocative ‘Da Homies’, the effervescence of ‘Kult’ and the ethereal atmospheres of ‘Save Me’, featuring HRVY, were well-received, but, of course, classics like ‘I Love It When You Cry’, in partnership with Moxie, delighted the crowd concentrated in front of the stage.

Of course, Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On’ (with the right to the video in which the two protagonists of “Titanic” transform into Aoki) and Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ were heard, but at the moment of putting the sickle in someone else’s success , Aoki also threw himself into more or less obvious choices, peppering his set with Icona Pop’s ‘I Don’t Care’, sung in unison, Farruko’s Latin hits ‘Pepas’ and Daddy Yankee’s ‘Gasolina’, a unexpected ‘We Are Young’, hit lost in time by Fun., ‘What’s Up’ by 4 Non Blondes or a much more recent ‘Stay’ by Kid Laroi with Justin Bieber. Along the way, the artist fired two smoke pistols, took multidirectional fire onto the stage, unleashed the usual showers of confetti and there was even fireworks covering the skies of Herdade da Casa Branca. Even before the cakes, he decided to take a picture with the audience to immortalize the moment, wrapped in the national flag: “I have fantastic memories here in the Southwest”. Tonight, he will have created a few more.
