I see myself as a versatile but not too talented hobby producer. My music roughly stays within the boundaries of “electronic music” and I am not immune to the influce of the outside world and its changing preferences and genres.
A short, incomplete and unsorted list of artists who have influenced me and my musical taste. I noticed while writing this down that there are many very obvious choices in there for someone who started listening to music in the late 80s and likes Hip Hop and electron music. But maybe there are a few surprises in there and a few things that make you dig deeper.
