Steve Aoki Talks Working With Star Wars Director J.J. Abrams [VIDEO]
Steve Aoki sat down with radio.com to talk about working with Star Wars director J.J. Abrams on his recently released album Neon Future II. As Aoki recounts in the video interview, the two bonded over their mutual love of synthesizers. While Abrams is known for his role in the film industry, the director/producer/writer has his own music studio that Aoki describes as “the most badass.”
After visiting Abram’s Bad Robot studio during the shooting of a scene for Star Trek, Aoki approached Abrams about creating a sound byte for Neon Future II. Abrams wound up doing some voice-over work on the closing track of the album, titled “Warp Speed (Outro)”.
