Great work from Netflix.
20 August 2016 | by sniperwolf-92See all my reviews

I'll Sleep When I'M Dead shows the almost unknown personal life of the intense and vibrating EDM master Steve Aoki. Going through his childhood and family roots to his relationship with his father and also showing how come he would get to set his influence as a music producer and how he got to carved his way into producing a bunch of new alternative popular bands in the DIY LA music scene.

Even though most of the documentaries portraying people from entertainment industry and show business in a general way tends to be and to show people in a somewhat pretentious way of living and acting, this is not the case in this great piece of work by Netflix. Steve was quite well represented in a original and real way that made the documentary a must-see to people that want to learn and to comprehend how the EDM scene works on backstage and how did Steve personal life was directly affected from the friends he end up making in the EDM scene and turning him into a major influence in the electronic music.

Definitely it is worth watching.
