I take a lot of influences from all sorts of bands and genres, but I've always tried to develop my own style, Back when I first started drumming there were 2 bands that I almost listened to every day, which are the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Rammstein. Prior to drumming I used to play the recorder. at the final day of practice, we got word that we'd have a live show of playing in front of people about a week and a half away, our back-up for that show was an orchestra. After we'd done our show, the orchestra played some tunes, and we were allowed to play an instrument that wasn't occupied. I immediatly went to the bongo's thanks to Donkey Konga. The first thing that they noted about me was my sense of rhythm, based on that they thought I might like to be a drummer, so they asked if I wanted to join their junior orchestra, and they'd pay about 50% of my lessons the first years.
I was 10 when I had my first lesson of drumming, 2 years later I made my first own drum loop. My teacher said that it sounds very funk like, which is something I've continued to expand on, and still to this day has stayed with me, I guess Chad Smith has been a big influence now that I think about everything I just wrote. Even now, when I do warm-up exercises, there'll always be a funk rhythm in it, even though I don't play in a funk band, I still warm-up with funk, and just try to incorporate a funk-like groovy rhythm in our songs, while also keeping main focus on making sure it's fit for death metal.
As for the music I have made for The Musikians so far, there's no consistency, it mainly depends on the mood I'm in, and what I've been listening to prior, which resulted in some songs at first sounding very much like what I've listened to, before adding all sorts of elements and sounds, and making it something of my own, a distinctive style, but also leaving some trails of influence. There's all sorts of backtrackings to be made there, but one of my biggest influences is Trent Reznor, I'm a fan of his works, and the soundtracks he provides, back when I started with producing in 2014, I was really in love with Closer's drum beat, a few projects that I had used a recreation of that beat. But, the pool of influences is a lot bigger for musikiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
