The virtual concert is set to take place on Aoki’s birthday.
The concert will feature a one-hour set from Aoki in an immersive Sonic universe with many of the game’s most memorable locales, like the Green Hill Zone and Chemical Plant. The DJ has also crafted a handful of remixes of fan-favorite tunes from classic Sonic games of the 16-bit era. Without a doubt, this will be the ultimate treat for longtime fans of the series.
“The best Sonic game is definitely the O.G. Sonic the Hedgehog. That’s the game that started it all for me,” Aoki said in a behind-the-scenes video. “That’s the game I was most obsessed with and you know I remember putting it in the genesis console and just rocking out.”
Aoki recently announced his partnership with Sensorium Galaxy, where he will be hosting exclusive VR performances using motion capture technology. He also recently unveiled his Aoki Vault, a treasure trove of incredibly rare Pokémon cards and collectibles.
