Grammy-nominated record producer and American-Japanese musician Steve Aoki finally made his way back to the Philippines!

The renowned DJ partied with electronic dance music (EDM) fans until the break of dawn during the ultimate pool party in Manila.

Steve Aoki's concert-party wouldn't be complete without him giving booze showers and throwing cake at the faces of select fans.

The music producer hyped up the crowd and told them, "This song is called 'Cakeface'! Do you what happens when I play 'Cakeface'?"

Steve instructed those who want to be "caked" to climb up on a friend's shoulder. Ten fans were lucky to get their faces smashed with cake by Steve Aoki while his 2015 hit song “Cakeface” was playing.

Towards the end of the pool party, Steve told Filipinos, "You wanna make Manila *expletive* crazy, right?"

The EDM musician asked partygoers to sit down before instructing them to jump up and dance as soon as they hear his beat drop.

Pinoy fans were more than eager to follow his request as DJ Aoki’s friends recorded the whole thing to upload on his YouTube account.

Fireworks blasted in the sky for five minutes as Steve wrapped up the party with a remix of Coldplay's "Fix You" and the club favorite "Pursuit of Happiness" from the 2012 movie, Project X.
