Raised in Auckland but currently based in Melbourne, Amin PaYnE’s sound is deeply rooted in both smooth and luscious sample based hip-hop, as well as the modernity and creativity of the current beat scene.

Amin PaYnE is a consistent crate digger with influences in both taste and production style as varied and complimentary as J-Dilla, Pete Rock, Kashiff, and Isley Brothers; a mix of both vintage and fresh sounds clearly reflect the dusty and crunchy, yet soulful music. Amin's flawless live sets are something to see as he performs live beats and remixes using drum machines and turntables, while also playing an instrument to entertain audiences at a next level experience.

He has shared stages with Aloe Blacc, Ladi6, Flying Lotus, Gaslamp Killer,Eric Lau, Hudson Mohawk, Oddisee, Suff Daddy, Ras G, Melo-X, Julien Dyne, Hiatus Kaiyote ,@Peace, Katchafire and many more.Amin was also a recent member of the sold out Red Bull Beat Suite, a performance with a 15-piece orchestra, three beatmakers, two turtablists, Aloe Blacc and Ladi 6.

HomeDean Campbell talks to Amin PaYnE Jan 17, 2013 Share 'What Love Is' - Amin PaYnEWhat inspired you to start producing music? Was it a natural extension of DJing for you? Peers? Family? All of the above? I'm the first person from my extended family tree that took music as a hobby. I started DJing...
Here is the 1st Beat of 2013 'LUV U'..something different and away from the synths..yours truly on the Saxamaphone.
AP on Sax..
So I put the synth down and picked up my Sax Instead and made music with love and soul for this beat im about to upload called 'LUV U'. Some feel good shit. And love & respect to my sister Sara for the help & feedback.
Hope you guys enjoy it, if not all good there is plenty of other shit on soundcloud like Trap, glitchy messy broken beat n loads of lazy music with no emotions that you might enjoy, just not my slice of cake.
Peace :)
