His sound has always been influencedby the finest underground styles : both regarding Autechre's and Aphex Twin's visionary rhythmic choices , the strong heirlooms ofMills' and Hood's Detroit techno , the electro pulsing bassline of italodisco , the industrial echoes of the early Nitzer Ebb and Front242 .Even if so eclectic , KR can glaringly be considered as the "industrial-techno forerunner married with an electronic hyperuranium poet ".So togheter with his early electronic glitch , idm , and Dnb productions now are currently growingtechno and electro tracks, but always regardful of human soul's finest ritual : the dance .
