DJ Steve Aoki plans slew of new releases in 2021 after year’s hiatus, he says, and explains why K-pop represents the future of pop music

  • ‘K-pop bands push the envelope constantly … Others haven’t even come close to it yet. I feel like everyone else is six months to a year behind,’ Aoki says
  • After working with BTS and Monsta X, DJ was drawn to A. C. E for their ‘X factor’. He’d like to work with Blackpink next. ‘Music connects everyone’, he says
