AyaxArroyo’s talent and passion for music was nurtured, brightened and stirred from an adolescent time. He played keyboards in many rock and metal bands from his home city of San Francisco. His understanding of synthesis and sampling evolved to an unrivaled attachment to electronic music.In the course of his venture he crossed paths with electro-industrial music. The dark melodies and energetic rhythms left a lasting impact. At that time Electronic Dance Music (EDM) started rising in popularity which had manysimilarities to industrial yet with a finer execution. Subsequently after exploiting the industrial medium, AJ Afterparty was born.
Afterparty made his electronic music debut in 2012. His aim was to create an upbeat ambience filled with heavy grooves andpiles of detailed sound design. He acquired plays in the hundred-thousands with underground remixes of Ellie Goulding, Lady Gaga, Tiesto, and Katy Perry.
