Counting with AJ Samuels AJ Samuels? The name rings a bell. And whilst we are still thinking about if he might be an American actor or a British novelist, the Electronic Beats magazine proves us all wrong. AJ Samuels is the tattoo-heavy chief copy editor and contributing author of EB’s highly collectible quarterly, since April 2011. The Massachusetts native’s heart beats for his microphone collection, political correctness and the psych-goes-art rock of the legendary Shimmy Disc-band Bongwater. Plus AJ likes to count, too. Here you go…
