My Influences / Fav Artists

I consider my influences to be varied across the board and not just in drum and bass. I have been and also still continue to be influenced by, jazz, hip hop, rock, house, blues, instremental and experimental. i love listening to music that has feeling, no matter what that feeling is. Drawing on my influences i then try to inject that feeling into my own productions.

My Music Sounds Like

Hopefully my own....Rolling beats, funk filled vibes, enticing bass, sweet atmospherics. General mood making music.

Wish i could do music all the time......
