German megaclub Boothaus announced the launch of its own podcast series “Boothaus Podcast” with Steve Aoki kicking-off as the guest for the first episode. The podcast will give listeners an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the world of dance music.
Featuring iconic EDM mainstage artists, heroes of the underground, and prolific industry executives, future podcast episodes will feature guests Felix Jaehn, Headhunterz, Sam Feldt, Boris Brejcha, Bootshaus CEO/Owner Fabian Thylmann, and Parookaville CEO Bernd Dicks.
Kicking-off with Steve Aoki, the initial episode will provide listeners a deeper insight into the dance music mogul known for high-octane music and on-stage theatrics. With exciting plans for upcoming virtual festival appearances, Steve Aoki explains how he wants to make a track with Elon Musk, and how his upcoming album Neon Future IV is set to feature a total of 27 tracks. Aoki also spoke about using his voice as an artist and how he was a subject to racism growing up as an Asian kid in America.
“I grew up in a very conservative area, where racism really flourished and everyone is white. If you are not part of the 96% whites, racism can happen and I thought — that’s just how it is. I learned a lot about having a voice to speak out about injustice.”– Steve Aoki
Each podcast episode will be hosted by German DJ & Moderator Arian Amedia and can be streamed here.
