Liquipel Partners With Superstar DJ Steve Aoki: World-Renowned Electro-House DJ and Producer Signs Deal With Maker of Water and Impact Protection for Electronics

Los Angeles, CA | Posted on September 26th, 2013

Named the highest-grossing dance artist in North America in June of 2012, Aoki also oversees his own label, Dim Mak Records, which has released music from The Bloody Beetroots, Bloc Party and other well-known artists. Aoki launched his Dim Mak Collection clothing line in 2006 and is a founding partner in the Sol Republic headphone company. As well as ranking as one of the Top 20 DJs in the world by internationally renowned DJ Mag, his 2011 album, Wonderland, was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Electronic/Dance category.

"I've had too much expensive equipment damaged by sprayed champagne and spilled water," said Aoki. "Getting my equipment, smartphone and headphones treated by Liquipel has been one of the smartest moves I've ever made. I'm equally excited to be working with them to help spread the word about this amazing technology."

Liquipel's patent-pending process creates a liquid-repellant coating that is microscopic and will outlast treated devices because the coating fuses at the molecular level. Liquipel is virtually untraceable and will not affect, nor compromise the look, feel and performance of the device. Liquipel's new Skins act as literal shock absorbers for devices while also maintaining a smooth, glass-like surface. The film itself is a hybrid of many of the best components found within other protective materials, including from the military.

"We are thrilled to welcome Steve to the Liquipel team," said Jason Winkler, Liquipel's vice president of marketing. "As a leader in areas as diverse as music, fashion, restaurants and online, he brings an immense creative energy to our efforts in promoting a no-limits lifestyle free from boundaries."
