How Aoki got this platform I will never know..
2 September 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Viewed it as I am interested in the way the so called "EDM" monitises dance culture and makes everything about music production in your face, as we have seen from We Are Your Friends and XOXO among others.

Look, if you like Aoki, then you'll probably like this. But he kinda sucks, and if you think so too then go and watch a bunch of Between the Beats Resident Adviser docs..

Not even remotely interesting, and he blags a lot considering he presses play on a CDJ and jumps into crowds, inflatables, you name it - not forgetting the cake, of course..

You'll probably call me a techno purist or that he's not for me (the latter is certainly true), but you can't help but feel their are more pioneering people to focus and make a documentary on.
