The need for travel advice is at an all time high, and who better to offer some than someone who spends practically half their life in the sky?
DJ and producer Steve Aoki is a traveling connoisseur, supported by his long-standing partner All Nippon Airways, with whom he inspires travelers to visit his favorite place in the world, Japan. The cake-throwing musician even gave travel lovers an exclusive listen to his new album Neon Future IV at an ANA event launching their newly redesigned seats.
Aoki says that it’s all about how you pack and efficiency is key. “I’m doing over 300+ flights a year easy,” He suggests to try to gauge what you want to wear for each day of the trip, and always be open to outfit-repeating.
For someone who travels for long hours, often needing to be energized and ready to perform by the time he touches down, Aoki says always try to get your sleep on the plane. Aoki tells Johnson that he stocks up on products that make sleeping in-flight as enjoyable as possible, and has tried out the best options out there for noise cancellation headphones and eye masks.
“For me I don’t like eye masks that are flat against my eyeballs...when you’re sleeping your eyes are moving.” Aoki opts for an eye masks that offer cushions surrounding the eyes, to avoid pressure on his eyelids. “It’s like a little baby bra or something,” he jokes.
