I'm an appreciator of music and teaching myself to craft some tunes.
I've had quite a few influences so far. In rough order of age;
Split Enz, Eurythmics, Frankie goes to Hollywood, Bryan Ferry, Grace Jones, David Bowie, Dire Straits, Jean Michael Jarre, Simon and Garfunkel and some other random stuff through the 80s.
Not much from the early 90's seems to have stuck besides C&C Music factory, Supergroove, Strawpeople and a bit of Cypress Hill. Gets more interesting later with Foo Fighters, Fun Lovin Criminals, Faith No More, Garbage, Massive Attack.
Into the 00's I started a slow drift towards more electronic music [Groove Armada, bit of Chemical Brothers] which culminated in discovering georgefm circa '07 [still can't remember exactly how I did] and discovered House [and, too a lesser extent DnB]. Really getting into underground deep house right now so that's where my head is at when I'm learning to create or just grooving out.
