Aoki speaks about the album:

HiROQUEST is an IP (Intellectual Property) that I created to tell these unique stories. In my new album, I drew inspiration from the past and the present, with Latin and dance collaborations at the core. These sounds are staples in my sets worldwide and allow me to connect with the audience on a truly global level“.
