VICE's recent profile of EDM legend Steve Aoki revealed a penchant for baked goods, cakes in particular.

Half a century after disco erupted from its jazz roots in a thunderous cloud of glitter, Escort frontman Eugene Cho brings a band of 16 (sometimes more, sometimes less) around the world to remind you without a shadow of doubt exactly why you're still dancing so hard. There's more. He cooks from Modernist Cuisine. You want him to make you sous-vide salmon, preferably with disco blasting in the background so loud you can't hear the electric spice grinder.

JES Unleashes The Beet, Spins A Crab Cake

Globetrotting DJ creates a fitter, healthier tour
Jan 16, 2014 4:00 pm

The secret weapon to world-traveling DJ JES' longevity: mastery of healthy living habits in a world famous for no sleep, tons of booze, etc. and 3 a.m. pizza. Not that 3 a.m. pizza is totally out of the question. Depriving a New Yorker of pizza is about as unhealthy as it gets. Plus, she made Vibe's top 10 female DJs of 2013, motivated us to get more sleep and loaned us an awesome recipe for healthy crab cakes. Thanks, JES!
