I'm More Of A Fan Now
28 June 2018 | by akilianetc-23277See all my reviews

I've listened to Steve Aoki's music for 6 years now and always been fascinated by his work. I didn't know much about him personally beside the one fact about his father's connection to Benihana. This was a great film to watch as I feel more connected to the artist himself and that he's a human being like everyone else. I understand him a lot more and I think the director and the crew did a great job at communicating that. It's worth watching to get to know one of the biggest names in the EDM/music industry. The man is a robot also, can't be human after watching this!
