1 Steve Aoki Paris Hilton

EXCLUSIVE

Steve Aoki says there's gross gender inequality in the DJ'ing world ... but he's not sure how to solve the problem.

We got the cake-throwing disc jockey Monday in Bev Hills and asked if other women -- besides Paris Hilton -- were getting a fair shot on the turntables, and Steve tells us straight-up ... they're not.

Our camera guy presses Steve on what can be done to obtain equality in the DJ world, but all he can muster in the moment is a hypothetical mandate for promoters. 

He also doesn't sound too worried by the massive plunge on the stock market Monday ... just hold on, he says.
