Q&A / Aoko
What is your favorite season and why?
I think my favorite season is summer. It's the perfect time to go out with friends, go to bed late, and produce music. I find the colors of nature magnificent during this period and it inspires me a lot.
Where do you feel the most centered and happy?
The place that calms me the most is my home. It doesn't matter if it's a house or an apartment, as long as I have my little habits and the necessary at hand I feel good. It feels good to go out every once in a while, but I like to control what surrounds me and not be rushed by life and I feel the most centered and in control at home.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given
The best advice is always honest advice, whether positive or negative, I accept it because it allows me to learn and improve myself.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Why?
I've been abroad quite a few times and really enjoyed it. Traveling allowed me to create wonderful memories, but I think I’d like to stay in France. I would, however, rather live in the city than in the countryside… I need to see other people to feel good.
Aside from lofi/chill beats, what is your favorite music genre?
For me, the musical style doesn't really matter, what touches me is much more complex than that. Some melodies will have an effect on me while others won't… I have an affinity for original and creative music. However, there are styles that affect me more than others, for example right now I listen to a lot of phonk and hyperpop.
