AP3X website
AP3X is a name that has become synonymous with dark, driving, energetic music in the Auckland dance scene.

From playing parties at the local soccer club in rural South Auckland on an old pc and Tractor V1.0, aged 16, to supporting international acts like Freestylers (UK), Scratch Perverts (UK), Rennie Pilgrim (UK), Baobinga & I.D (UK), NAPT (UK), Vent (UK), one thing that hasn’t changed is a true love for electronic music.

Arriving on the Auckland club scene in 2002 with the conception of “Revolt”, co-promoted with the infamous Andy Bukshot, he started off playing progressive house and techno. The eventual discovery of breaks around 2003 set the course for the future.

After gigs all around the North Island, guest dj mixes on NZ national music TV channel ‘Juice’ as well as the two major Auckland Dance radio stations, co-hosting the ‘Audio Damage’ show on UPFM and holding things down for one of NZ’s longest running breaks nights “Infectious” with co-promoters and dj’s $ure$hot and Joe Revell, the natural progression was to move onto production.

With a couple of minor releases already under his belt, AP3X shifted focus from the club to the studio. The result is his first release with U.S label Ridiculoud Records, “Power Struggle” with a remix from breaks heavyweight Retroid. Now with the controls firmly set to making tough, driving, prog tipped breaks, watch this space...
