Las Vegas Strip resident DJs Steve Aoki and Shaquille O’Neal (aka DJ Diesel) have teamed up to release “Welcome to the Playhouse” through Aoki’s Dim Mak label, a high-energy track with accompanying animated music video. “Shaq and I have been wanting to collaborate on a track together for a while now, but it wasn’t until he came over to Aoki’s Playhouse one day that we finally found the inspiration for our collab,” Aoki said in a statement. “We hopped into the studio and the track just came together. That same kind of fun energy is carried through to the artwork and video as well, and I’m so excited to be kicking off the new year with this release.” Aoki spins next at Omnia on January 15, 21 and 29; DJ Diesel doesn’t have any dates on the upcoming Wynn Nightlife calendar.
