Steve Aoki joins host Stephen Kallao

It’s no wonder a long list of musicians wants to work with Steve Aoki, one of the world’s biggest and most successful electronic music producers. His albums often feature dozens of collaborators, like Sting, The Backstreet Boys, and Zooey Deschanel, who appear on the latest record, Neon Future IV. Today, Steve shares how he gets such mega-stars to let their guard down in the studio. And we’ll also hear about his interests in futurism and technology, and why Elon Musk is his dream collaborator.
