My music is still very far from what i want.
I'm a huge Pendulum fanboy, they were the first electronic music I've ever heard, and I've been hooked to them ever since. Listened to all of their albums dozens of times. Plus I love Rob and Gareth's work as Knife Party, though I'd love if they released another pendulum album :D
This one from Hans Zimmer is so beautiful!
Ooh, I will post my favorite track (or at least one of them, a have several favorites from each) from each artist I look up to!

Peter Crowley
Adrian von Ziegler
Brandon Fiechter
Derek Fiechter (this is actually his and his brother Brandon Fiechter's combined collab channel)
Antti Martikainen

There are a few others, but these are probably my biggest inspirations, though I should also mention this song because I heard it four years ago and again recently and it's what inspired me to start.
Dr Dre
Dj Premier
Rick Rubin
search gentle universe they are band here in Philippines mostly ambient kind of music. I wanted to be like them making music for commercials and movies

  1. Please share someone/something that you look up to musically . :)
  2. Please provide a link (if possible) :mrgreen:
  3. You can post any type of artist. :)

Pretty much anybody from Monstercat (https://soundcloud.com/monstercat), but I really like Muzzy, Nitro Fun, and Seven Minutes Dead.

https://soundcloud.com/muzzydnb (I'm not sure whether this link is correct, Soundcloud is blocked at my current location. :( )
https://soundcloud.com/7minutesdead (Music is super different, I love it! Listen to "Act III")
My favourite Aritsts:

Some songs from Shurk or some oldies like "Sweet Home Alabama" are also very cool :D
Hans Zimmer is one of the biggest orchestral artists that I also like very much.
There are many, I find most of the artists I listen to inspire me. In terms of the music I gravitate toward making:

For old school goa projects: Modern goa and the people who inspire me the most in terms of modern production:
  • Celestial Intelligence (These guys I would fall apart into a gibbering wreck if I met, this release was like a switch that went on in my head and I sat down infront of a soft synth and thought 'this time I'm going to properly learn')
  • Psy-H Project
In terms of just really nice, crisp production, great rhythm and just super-cool rock-your-shades-at-night tracks: Projects who do a bit of everything and majorly inspirational:
