Just a bedroom producer from the UK doing things the old fashioned way. Fruity Loops 9 and a low end laptop. I wanted to be a guitar player but I sucked. Picked up quite a bit of knowledge about music theory along the way though.
I use Fruity Loops 9 exclusively and any free sample packs I can get my filthy little hands on.
Just using a basic low end HP laptop with cheap earphones.
Dance Wave and Proton Radio. Two great online streaming stations for electronic music. I get them through the Shoutcast app on Winamp.
Appetite For Destruction. The first RATM album.
I'll listen to anything, but I tend to go through stages of just listening to one particular type of music or another. At the moment I'm going through an industrial techno phase, hence all the related material. But I love rock, hip hop, funk, blues, jazz, electronica etc... Never been a big fan of dubstep though. Sorry.
Some weird type of alien electronic sludge.
I'm a qualified journalist.
