Renowned music producer Steve Aoki stopped by SBS PopAsia HQ for a chat with our own Andy Trieu recently, and after covering a variety of topics - including his verdict on the EXO vs BTS debate and his friendship with BIGBANG - he then talked about his working process and what it's like being an Asian superstar DJ in the Western world!

After talking about potentially working on something with BIGBANG and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Steve then revealed that he works best with an artist when he already has a relationship with them, so much so that he prefers to work with good friends due to the level of trust that's already present.

Moving on from his work process, Steve then talked about what it's like to be an Asian-American superstar DJ from the Western world, saying that it is important to be a role model for younger Asian fans and that it is great to see many Asians doing some great work in various creative fields.
