Whenever I listen to music I unconsciously end up biting the style the next time I attempt to make beats

Because I have very little talent of my own

I think I first noticed it when listening to a lot of Dalek and ending up making very poor imitations of their beats by accident

Nujabes/Fat Jon/Shing02. I became interested in making music and hip-hop after heavily watching this anime samurai champloo. the soundtrack was very lush and vivid to me and so that's what fathered my ventures into music!

De La Soul's 3 Feet High album got me keen on sampling.
When Wu-Tang came out, the beats blew me away. So RZA, 4th Disciple and the rest of the Wu family.
Pete Rock and Premier got me into digging.
Donuts and Madvillain made me want all my beats to transition, have a story, and just sound raw.
A slew of underground producers (Dibia$e, Ohbliv, Fluent, sleepy eyes, Tuamie, Kev Brown, Knx, James Matthew, Mujo, Scruffnuk Dust, Pook, and many more) got me hyped on Roland's SP series and a lo-fi grit.
Dirty Tapes label got me wanting to put out physical releases in the form of cassette.

Too hard to answer. My top Five All-time MCS is probably not unlike most peoples-but, I unlike most I will give special mention to ASON who watches down on me and my peoples from heaven every day. However, music and video production-wise:

The most influence would probably be JayDee and MadLib .... anything 2003 and back is what I really focus on getting my stuff to sound like.

Biggest influence is probably fat jon, been a massive fan of his beats since samurai champloo, which got me into hip hop really

 

others include Nujabes, J Dilla, DOOM, jehst, flylo, CYNE, and High Focus Records

I think Beck is one of the most overlooked artists as far as sampling goes. I developed layering by listening mainly to Odelay by Beck and FlyLo. Doom and Madlib also illustrate collage creating at a minimalist, but pleasing, level that we can all learn from. Alchemist and Death Grips are also personal favorites.

the bomb squad by far.  

 

then when i got my first set of woofers in  my ride,  i started digging The legendary traxter after twista's adrenaline rush album.

 

But if youu were to ask me who got me into makin beats,  its the bomb squad, and eric sermon....but the squad always came hard to me and didnt really jus sample melodies, heck sometimes the didnt sample melodies at all, jus stabs and shit, and bang the drums hard

Yep! Dust Brothers are the shiznit! If dude didn't know that they did 'Odelay!' he probably doesn't know they also produced his 2005 LP 'Guero'. And you have to be living under a rock to not know about the spectacular work they did on 'Paul's Boutique'.

DJ Premier is the reason I started making beats. During the early years, Primo, 9th Wonder, Khrysis, Pete Rock...those guys had a real big influence on my sound. Got into sampling less and the Roots and 20 Syl played a much bigger part in shaping my style. Of course Dilla too.

 

That's just in the realm of Hip Hop though, a lot of the other music I listen to ends up finding it's way into my music every so often.

It's crazy how many producers there are that don't get recognition but have been making heat for years. It was a long time before I discovered Fat Jon or Nujabes. I was floored by how much work they had out and how consistent it all was. 

 

Reading this thread I realize just how many more producers there are that I need to check out

YO, da beatminerz  Mr. walt and EVIL D, had that duck down shit on bang.  that was all i listened to for a while.    shit was hard and still is.  they still bang shit out thats hard as fuk.

 

i dont really get into all that ambient shit, and soft ass shit.   primo, pete, da minerz, large professor......all use to bang hard shit out.

 

cant forget the west coast g'z who made me use less and less samples and start using more instrmnts in my tracks.

 

that heiroglyphic shit was banging, so was that pharcyde shit.    west coast with an east coast feel to it.

 

too much depressing ambient shit nowadays,   or dudes following one dudes sound trying to recreat what he did

 

drums dont hit no more....

Large Professor, DJ Mark the 45 King, Prince Paul, Diamond D, and of course Preemo were my early inspirations for wanting to make beats back in high school. Over the last several years The Madlib has become a very heavy influence on how I like to go about making beats.
