Well I've been making beats since I was 11 years old when I first figured out how to use FL Studio. I'm not the best at all but I love creating something from nothing. Music is just a big part of my life.
Well with instruments...give me 5 minutes and I'll figure it out ha but I mostly play piano. I can play it by ear but i can also read music at a basic level.
FL Studio 10 Mostly...
M-Audio Axiom 25, M-Audio StudioPro 3 (Studio Monitors), and some other stuff ha
Pretty much everything, I don't particularly listen to one genre of music, I listen to music from classical (when I'm looking to sample) to Dubstep. lol
Watch The Throne, Man On The Moon II, Bangarang, Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites...a bunches
Timbaland, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, My family and friends, etc.
I've been told I'm very original but if anybody I would have to say Timbaland. I guess because my uses of abstract drums and synth sounds.
