Steve Aoki is one of the most-travelled musicians in the world.
In 2012, he won a Guinness World Record for being the most-travelled musician in one year, playing 168 shows in 41 countries. Last year, he played more than 200 shows in 12 months, according to Forbes.
The 39-year-old is also the fifth highest-paid DJ in the world, earning $29.5 million (£22.9 million) last year.
Despite Aoki’s private jet lifestyle, which is packed with parties, celebrities, and bottles of sparkling rosé, he’s still, somehow, a health and fitness obsessive — so much so that he started an “Aoki Boot Camp” for him and his crew to abide by when they’re on the road (or in the air).
As son of Benihana founder Hiroaki “Rocky” Aoki, he’s also a keen businessman — he owns his own record label and recently debuted a fashion line.
Still, Aoki has a less professional side. His massive following — 6.6 million on Twitter, 8.3 million on Facebook, and 5.5 on Instagram — know him for spraying champagne or chucking cakes at his fans — big ones, that have even hurt people at times.
As he releases his first hip-hop album — a step change from his usual EDM mixes — Business Insider caught up with Aoki to hear about his wild life on the road.
