Steve Aoki marries Aussie model Tiernan Cowling

STEVE Aoki has married his longterm partner Tiernan Cowling.

The 38-year-old EDM DJ finally tied the knot after a five year engagement with the Australian model, 24, in Maui, Hawaii on Friday at an "intimate ceremony" attended by family and close pals.

A rep for the star told US Weekly: "Steve married his longtime girlfriend in a small, private and intimate ceremony in Maui in front of their families."

The Grammy-nominated musicmaker - who is one of the highest-grossing DJs of all time - is the brother of actress-and-model Devon Aoki and their father is the late Hiroaki Aoki, who founded the Benihana restaurant chain.

As well as a great personal milestone for Steve, 2015 has also been a phenomenal year for the music producer professionally, having released his third studio LP, 'Neon Future II, which features collaborations with Snoop Lion, Rivers Cuomo and rockers Linkin Park.

However, Steve feels there is still much to be accomplished in the world of electronic music.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he explained recently: "In America, as far as commercial radio is concerned, it's [EDM] not dominating. Maybe one or two songs will come and really dominate, like a Calvin Harris song, an Avicii song, this Major Lazer song ['Lean On'], which has been a number one song ... But it's very rare. I still feel like there's a long way for us to go.

"At the end of the day pop is called pop, it's popular. So when people write that kind of music, it's always going to be the dominant kind of music in the commercial space."
