27 living in Toronto
too many influences to list, but anything from Ed Banger Records, DNTEL, John Tejada, Genius of Time I really enjoy. In terms of hip-hop/rap producers: Alchemist, Necro, early Neptunes stuff, DJ Muggs, Pete Rock, and DJ Premier beats have always been inspiring.
The OP-1 was my main introduction into synthesis/sampling and haven't looked back since. It was a great primer for my modular/elektron workflow and now I'm just trying to improve my live playing and improvisational skills with my current setup. Always exploring different BPMs/genres/styles but I have a lot of fun making techno.
