  Under the Influence...        Go on top to this Page

If you had only 3 artists/bands/groups you could list that you would say influences your style or even your method of putting tracks together, who would they be and why?

For me it would be:

1.) Madlib/DJ Rels (Hip Hop/Acid Jazz producer)- I love the raw sound to his productions, and the sampling is second to none. Very obscure, but always jazzy and fresh.

2.) )EI3(/Bad Company (drum and bass producer crew)- these guys know how to make evil sounding dnb with music merit. While they're not super innovative, they have a structure to their music which almost defies or crosses over intended feelings...as well, they've always found new ways to make synths scream at you in unexpected ways.

3.) 4 Hero (electronica duo) - Primarily, their early stuff (UK hardcore style from '89-'95) is just...crazy. They have a very unique sound that, while I wish not to duplicate it, it makes me strive to find a way to be unique like their sound was. Even though their songs had no vocalist, you could almost instantly tell a 4 Hero track...it wasn't because of something specific they did that defined their style (ala Aphex Twin's glitchy beats) it was the leftfield approach to sound.

So those, I guess would be my main influences, or who I'd like to think of as my influences. I don't necessarily believe that being influenced by someone's sound means you have to sound like them, too...it could just mean they inspire you to do what you do.

Simon Posford (Hallucinogen, Shpongle, etc) -
The master of electronic music to me. I mostly don't even like electronic music so much but his take on trance created something that lasts... Of course I reeaaallly like some other trance artists like Nick Barber, Joti Sidhu etc, but there's just anybody who can reach the sate of his mastery.

Gjallarhorn - I don't do music like this (ethnic) except for the two remixes I did for them, but I hope to be able to catch the same kind of happy, warm feeling that many of their tracks have. The band that I absolutely adore. http://www.gjallarhorn.com

Rob Hubbard - Yup. Bleep. Blooooop. AND HIT MELODIES TOO!

Am a weird? or very simple guy?
I don't know any of your influences

My influences are surely known by everyone. Mike Oldfield, J.M.Jarre, Snap, Depeche Mode, all 90's techno artists, some spanish groups...

......yes. I must be a simple guy, my friends say it too

Didn't recognize Mike Oldfield...:p

I didn't recognize any of Taika-Kim's inspirado either, but that just means I've got more names on my list of stuff to listen to. I like listening to groups/music I've never heard before.


...unless it's country...


(last statement is ironic since I'm from texas...go figure)

i'm a great fan of ENIGMA (and all the michael cretu 80's music ) ...
and i like also all the strange ethnical music especially from arabia and india (buddha bar rocks)
anyway for my trance production i was very inspired by the classical composer like paul van dyck ,sash and others guys of classical europen trance.
of course 80's music especially the "italo dance"
and like sampler said :oldfield ,jarre and i must add...alan parson.
...but i can't forget all the old modules i've heard in a lot of years on amiga :moby ,jogeir,maniacs of noise....an endless list...LOL

Being a Guitarist, most of my influences are Guitar-based. I can't nail people as influences, but I've been influenced by Delta and Memphis Blues, 60's Psychadelic Rock, and 90's Alternative/Punk.

What I enjoy listening to and what I write are generally pretty similar. For instance, I've never been a huge Soundgarden fan, but when I wrote "Subversion" I had heard Audioslave for the first time a couple weeks before that, and I added a couple touches of surf to it. I haven't listended to much Soundgarden or Audioslave since. Likewise, I learned how to play "Blackbird" by the Beatles, on guitar, and ended up composing my own accoustic fingerpicked riff which I find reminiscent of Blackbird, while being very different. I haven't figured out where to take it though...
