I am an aspiring artist, who hopes to be a DJ later on in life.
I'm from Corbin, KY originally, which is the town where Colonel Sanders' first restaurant is located! But do to my mother not bein able to hold a relationship with someone I have lived in Corbin, Manchester & Knoxville, TN, and NYC,NY. I now have moved in with my dad back in Corbin. You may be thinkin that's a bad thing but that's where your wrong. You see livin in these places has granted me a knowledge of cultural diversity beyond 90% of the people from Corbin, which is a good thing.
I am influenced by many artists. The first (about)13 years of my life were mainly filled with classic, hard, and modern rock music. There were also some mixes of Alternative and very little rap. When I lived in Knoxville I was truly introduced to Daft Punk, who are the peanuts to my butter, too cliche? They are and will forever be a personal favorite of mine. But of course along with new toys come, more toys so I began listening to a multitude of techno, electronica music. I really, really got into the idea of sound producing through a video game called DJ Hero 2, now I know you're thinkin "Hey that ain't sound producin that's a game!" but it's just the idea of the game that got me hooked. I began to play it for hours just listening and getting into the music, then I thought "Man, I wanna do that." so as any 15 year old boy would do, I got infatuated with the idea, and now a year later I got Ableton and am starting up my hopeful career. =3
As for the other artists that influence me they are: Coldplay, Daft Punk, Deadmau5, Tiesto, Blackmill, Skrillex, The Fray, Slipknot, any classic rock will do, & many more I can't think of right now.
Gear- Ableton... that's it right now. FOR NOW!
