Steve Aoki has never shied away from broadcasting his love for science and his “futurist” outlook, and how it’s helped shape himself and his music. With the recent release of the second part of his two-part album, Neon Future II, Aoki’s strong devotion to futurism has never been more prominent. In an interview published in Billboard’s dance section, the producer and DJ discussed how he’s been meeting with doctors to bank some of his stem cells for future use, as well as wanting to look as young as Martin Garrix. Aoki also discusses his work out regimen and more. You can read the full interview here or a few picked out answers below.
How do you stay in shape while you’re touring?
I do a mix of CrossFit-style workouts, high-intensity cardio and core work — the variety keeps the body guessing.
How do you stay focused?
I try to spend 10 minutes a day realigning my mind and body. I do a mental scan from the tips of my toes up to the top of my head. I’m also doing a vocal rest once a month. It’s difficult, but it forces you to make time for yourself.
Are there doctors you see?
I went to a health wellness center run by Dr. Terry Grossman [a specialist in nutritional and anti-aging medicine]. His team banked some of my stem cells for future use. I also recommend the supplement Celergen [swisscelergen.com]. It’s good cell ammunition — so I can look as young as Martin Garrix one day!
