Amin Payne has built a serious reputation as both prolific producer and unmissable live performer since moving to Australia to further his music career from New Zealand. Having defined his own unique sound, Amin now mixes the soulful influences of his hometown in Auckland and the experimental beats of Melbourne’s electronic scene that he has found himself a prominent part of. With his blend of soulful music with forward-thinking sensibilities, Amin’s talent has not gone unnoticed, and after his first release 2011’s ‘Gill Scott Heron Tribute’, he was asked to perform as part of Red Bull Music Academy’s Beat Suite, alongside a fifteen-piece orchestra, notable local beat makers, turntablists and Aloe Blacc and Ladi 6 to a sold-out crowd in Melbourne’s Recital Hall.

Having studied Sound and Audio Engineering at SAE College, Amin’s inspiration comes from a life-time spent as a constant crate digger with influences as varied as J-Dilla, Pete Rock, Kashif, Earth Wind & Fire, and Michael Jackson. “Because my music is mostly instrumental I have the freedom to explore and infuse different genres and add a modern feel to it. My current sound is very hip-hop, future funk and future beat, but I’ve even made a deep house track and used World Music samples for my new album. I’m trying everything I can to challenge myself and keep things fresh but consistent at the same time,” says Amin.

A vital member of the Operatives, Amin is also the co-founder of Condensed Milk, a collective & label that is renown for drawing a crowd for it’s parties, talent showcases and DJ sets across Melbourne and releasing several acclaimed compilations of local and International artists.

With a sound that has drawn fans from across the globe, his live set’s are unmatched by few Australian producers. Incorporating live beats, his distinguished record collection and remixes; he uses drum machines and live instrumentation, which has furthered his reputation as an exceptional performer as well as a talented producer.

Thanks to the success of his live shows and unstoppable music, Amin has shared stages with Aloe Blacc, Ladi6, Flying Lotus, Gaslamp Killer, Talib Kweli, Peanut Butter Wolf, Eric Lau, Hudson Mohawke, Kev Brown, Oddisee, Suff Daddy, Ras G, Melo-X, Julien Dyne, Hiatus Kaiyote,@ Peace, Shapeshifter , Miles Bonny and Katchafire.
