I was just watching the DOOM RBMA lecture and was just thinking how much of an inspiration he has been to me and how I look at him as one of the fathers of my style. A long with Madib and Rza these are the guys I really studied, these are the guys who sample choices I actually look into, and who I compare my beats to.

So who are the artist that you studied or who have the most impact on the way you make music?

If it weren't for Dillinja, there would be no distorted sub bass or 808's, forgot to say Madlib as he's so obvious, and Dilla before the LA beat scene. Forgot Frank Zappa as well.

Kanye West and A Tribe Called Quest are two important influences that I forgot to mention, I discovered sampling through them. Danger Mouse and Outkast (especially Andre 3000) also has had a big influence on me.

Outside of hip-hop I would say Can, The Silver Apples, and Mort Garson are pretty big influences.

dj shadow. no doubt

when i first heard pre emptive strike and the bonus cd that qbert did, i didnt know what to think of it. i was into techno and electronic music back before then (daft punk, the orb, bukem, fatboy slim) but i never gave hiphop a proper listen, outside of the popular radio singles of the 90s. hearing pre emptive strike took me a few listens to get into but after that i bought entroducing and was hooked. unkle's psyence fiction dropped a few months after i listened to entroducing and i found a new love for hiphop and searched and searched for other similar sounds.

coldcut, meat beat manifesto, black dog productions, cut chemist, world famous beat junkies, pete rock, premier, dj spinna, double k, dj abilities, Z TRIP, rjd2 and all the other good producers from def jux and mo wax…
it wasnt until around 2008 that i felt confident enough to make music instead of just DJ tho. i have been collecting records since 2002 and find a solace in their company. to me, hearing a beatmatched set of tunes and/or timed cohesive mixing is something i cherish.

but definitely hearing dj shadow for the first time and learning about how he produced made me want to buy an mpc & make music

definitely those two...also, Juno Akasawa introduced me to the whole genre of glitch-hop, which to me seems to have splintered into pretty much all of the current subgenres we have today.

Flying Lotus, Nujabes & a shit ton of Japanese/Korean pop, hip-hop and R&B.
Nujabes introduced me to the whole world and ideals of instrumental music and Flylo took me to outerspace with it. I owe a lot to both of them.

I also find it ironic how loads of Japanese/Korean artists have a lot of western influences but the tables have totally been flipped in my case and I'm looking at them like "damn I should try making stuff like that." (e.g: )

Honorable mentions to Pharrell, Dilla, Johnny Marr (not really hip-hop/beat music I know) & Freddie Joachim
