Ajapai's Australian Debut
Tokyo is probably not the first place you think of when it comes to deliciously vicious dubstep beats, but Japanese young-gun Ajapai is all about breaking out of the confines of conventionality.
With a fondness for aggressively fun and fierce music that gets clubbers on their feet and flailing about wildly, it’s no wonder his debut release What Do You Hear? managed to take out third place on the Beatport chart, cementing his place as a figure to pay close attention to. Picked up by Rottun Records on the strength of his few releases, he also started up his own label Ajapai Entertainment, with a Beatport Annual Award to its name already, despite its relative youth. Having worked with Excision and Downlink on his latest release, and toured internationally playing festivals and clubs across Europe, Canada and the US, Ajapai's dancefloor mayhem is well and truly tried and tested.
Get in on the action: Ajapai plays Brown Alley on Friday May 18.
