Old school sample lover. My first sampler was a scsi unit plugged into the back of an Amiga in the 1980s. Refugee of the infamous Melbourne rave scene of the 90s.
When I DJ I go by Sp3cul8 but when I play live or make tracks in the studio I use the monkier "Proximity Efkt". Pretty much retired (old fart that I am) but still making tunes and using my hardware to make samples for all you young ones out there. When I started out finding samples was so hard, but with Looperman I can help others and that makes me happy.
Various FX Pedals
Xenyx X2222 mixer
Been crate digging in the dust - looking for old vox especially. Just found a record of poetry that I'm looking to use as a sound-design source. Also - AI voice generators are pretty cool too, although they need some FX to shine.
Easy E - Easy Duz It.
Spiderbait - Songs in the key of J.
Prodigy - Music for the jilted generation.
Pink Floyd - Piper at the Gates of Dawn
RUN DMC - Tougher than Leather
Avalanches - Since I Left You
Beatles - Sgt Peppers
The Doors - The Doors
Dave Clarke - Archive One
Carl Cox - F.A.C.T
Anyone who uses samples, from the Avalanches to the Prodigy through to Chris Liebing and Mallgrab. I'm not fussy or elitist at all - and I really do listen to everything.
I'm leaning more and more into the bush techno sound, but more on the techno side than the psy side, although the trance influence is in my blood, having been to bush doofs since the earliest Earthcores through to Esoteric today.
