Pretty much anything, although i try not to listen to anything mainstream so that when i create i don't use something my ears have already heard from another artist.
Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms The best sound recorded album in the 80's, the quality of sound was amazing for that time.
All eighties genres of music, it was the best of music in my ears and eyes and nothings come close since...anything from 80's electro streetsounds too Depeche Mode & Joy Division ... the eighties was fantastic ere to be a teenager in...if only we could turn back time!
Chicane, New Order, Darude ... i guess?
