Afilion (Justin West) is a Canadian music composer and producer from Burlington, Ontario. Afilion creates electronic music that is heavily influenced by video-game and 80’s music. Sometimes he composes music for video games which range from desktop MMORPG’s to casual mobile games.
Justin was born in Montreal, Quebec in February of 1993, however at the age of 4 he moved to Burlington, Ontario where he would spend the rest of his childhood and adolescence. From a very young age Justin’s creative passions were obvious. He delved deeply into the music of the 1980’s and frequently shot and edited videos. It was in his mid-teens that Justin decided to explore the art of music composition and production. By the age of 18 he had released several dance-influenced singles and remixes.
Justin’s compositional skills would greatly be challenged when he decided to compose music for indie games in 2013. Over the course of the next four years Justin would go on to compose music for over two dozen indie games, release several singles and two full length artist albums. In June of 2017, Justin graduated with a diploma in Interactive Media Design from Fanshawe College. He now resides in London, Ontario where he tries to juggle music, web development and freelance work.
