Since my childhood days of watching Transformers, I have been listening to Linken Park for as long as I can remember. The band's numerous transformation and creativeness is what made me stick with them for so long. Their process of going from rock to more pop is similar to what I went through in music tech, but in a different sense. From bad to somewhat decent at making music.
Then comes Rich Brian, an Indonesian rapper who learned English from listening to rap. Now, this doesn't have a particular influence over the music that I make; I just thought I would put this here because I like listening to him.
Just like Rich Brian, Epik High doesn't have a particular influence over me. However, their musical expertise inspires me to be the best I can be when creating music. Their dedication to perfecting an album made me perfect my own music and be the best it could be.
