Your musical influences
I grew up with an record player and huge stack of 45's. I would jump on my bike and hit up garage sales, looking for records with the coolest looking labels. Back then I was paying maybe a quarter for a handful, so you can imagine the different styles of music I had tucked in my closet. When hip-hop music hit in the mid 80's, that was it for me. I knew hip-hop/rap music was going to grow and become widely popular and I wanted to be apart of it.
What equipment do you use?
Old records to lift samples, sound forge & acid software.
