I am about to give you strict facts on something I know nothing about and do not fundamentally understand. Today, the official Sonic Twitter announced an upcoming virtual music performance by Steve Aoki, notably taking place on Nov. 30, Aoki’s birthday.
Wikipedia describes Aoki as “an American DJ, record producer, music programmer, record executive, and heir to his father Rocky Aoki’s fortune from the Benihana restaurant franchise.”
The official Sonic YouTube channel also put out a behind-the-scenes preview video of Aoki talking about his love of Sonic, waving his hands while at a green screen DJ booth, and using the phrase “metaverse.”
Feel free to give informed context on who Steve Aoki is in the comments. Except for the NFT thing. We don’t need to get into an argument about the NFT thing.
