Clearly impressed, or at least amused, Aoki wrote: "When u realize @calvinharris has a framed photo of Rod Stewart on his dj booth. Simply amazing."
A portrait of Calvin Harris is now hanging in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, as the Edinburgh institution pays tribute to the country's biggest electronic export.

Troxler has always been a passionate spokesperson on the origins of dance music which began in queer clubs in the US in the '80s and feels that LaForge’s work is the “visual embodiment of what I wanted to express as a DJ.”
