Best known for 2018 single “Rise,” a collaboration with fellow artists The Glitch Mob and The World Alive, Mako is an American DJ with millions of monthly listeners across streaming platforms.

Q: What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done and would you do it again?
Let’s see…I guess there’s a difference between the craziest thing I remember doing and anything I don’t :). Oh, I traveled to Saudia Arabia last year, and then spent some time in Istanbul afterward. Fucking fascinating parts of the world (very different between each other as well). Would absolutely do it again
