37, Belgium, Gent, home of RIP I love techno, Decadance
-vinylcollecting/mixing electronic music (big impact Ae and Afx)
-making all kinds of genres depending in what mood I am but certainly not dance or trance shit! Hardware only, first machine Electribe EMX1 bought on release date, first Elektron around 7years ago MDmk1, and also A4 and DN + to many stuff to mention which I have gathered in all these years of gassing and ‘collecting’.
I can’t play keyboard, but I can program or sequence it! I need more hands or some slaves to play or control my synths
Turning 25 this month, and I’ve been living on Long Island NY for about 5 years now but was born and raised in south Florida.
I guess I make hip hop? Idk, that’s what I call it but it never sounds like traditional hip hop.
I’ve got a wide range of influences; Prog Metal, Hip Hop, Game music, alternative/indie, etc. I like to take little bits of inspiration from everything and just make whatever I can. Lately I’ve been really into the Soulection crew’s sound, particularly Monte Booker.
I also love me some old school boom bappin’:
Pete Rock, Madlib, MF Doom ( and all his aliases/collabs), Wu Tang, Mathematics, etc.
My biggest influence had to be FlyLo though, he really showed me that I can do whatever the fuck I want with hip hop and it still be dope.
33, live in Medellin, Colombia
I like Freestyle, Electrofreestyle, Electrobreaks, Trance Breaks, Anthem Breaks, and Break Trance
Update: I’m 37 now.
Cool to see this! Thank you!
I wonder what would be the (dis)proportion of males x females (x other) here!
LOL. You must be new to electronic music.
Honestly all the DJs and artists im listening to atm seem to be women i dunno why. If I was a woman making electronic music I probably wouldnt be hanging round forums… men act like everybody else is a man and it would be really off putting. Also there will be lots but they probably keep quiet about it would i imagine. Just my thoughts
45 Chicago- Influence are Aphex Twin, SOPHIE, PJ Harvey, Shellac.

39, North of Bergen, Norway.
I’m into rock as a singer, but like everything with an edge to it. I play bass/sing in a band, but what I enjoy most of all is late night doodles on the digitakt/a4. Or soldering. I like soldering.
I’m just across the river in Scappoose!
I do not often introduce myself, but i like this forum, so here we go…
1981, Brandenburg, Germany
The first years I grow up in the GDR, so my first contact with music was mostly this :
After the fall of the wall I start listening to electronic music and I was fascinated since i saw my first live broadcast of the MAYDAY…here is a broadcast from 1995
Loveparade (not the very first and not the very last ones) where fun, too. That was the first one I visited and the best (for me):
I do not follow such festivities anymore (nowadays the music is too stressful for me ), but back then (about 20 years ago) it was great.
I listen to a lot of music genres these days (because inspiration comes from everywhere), but i’m still most influenced by electronic music. I’m into straight minimal and synthwavish stuff, like:
