World renowned superstar EDM Dj/producer Steve Aoki interviews with GQ Magazine and admits to saying that he never would’ve thought his career would take him to this path in dance music.
Recently opening up about how far and how this DJ lifestyle direction has taken him.
“This whole arena-filling DJ, electronic musical thing wasn’t supposed to happen. Not at all. I grew up in Miami but moved to Newport Beach, then enrolled at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I was a straight edge, vegan punk and a committed activist. I took women’s studies and sociology and went on demos, playing guitar in basements to 20 people. I wanted to change things. I’ve encountered my fair share of prejudice and racism on my way through life and addressing those injustices has long been a passion. Listen, I get it — it’s harder to do that when stood in front on 10,000 people in a club who just want to get their rocks off. But I keep it in mind.”
Steve’s life has taken him to places he’s never imagined going or taking part of such as making a big statement by kneeling with Colin Kaepernick, helping raise money Las Vegas victims, giving to the world The Chainsmokers, owning a clothing line, creating a game for eSports, and more.
