Aaron Jae is a San Francisco based breaks dj who has been tearing all across the US of A dropping his brand of hard-hitting, dirty, nasty breaks. He and his partner, dj Bam, founded Evil Breaks in the beginning of 2004 in an attempt to bring breaks to the underground scene. Evil Breaks has since expanded and is now doing regular events both at clubs, and in the underground scene, and have thrown events or hosted rooms at every major club in San Francisco.
