When I started, I was just messing around with a cool program I downloaded a demo from somewhere - Reason 2.5. I was fascinated by it, but didn't know much about writing music. Since then, I have signifigantly developed my music theory, listened to thousands of hours of music, and written over 300 songs. Of these, only my most recent work is fit for hearing...
I've also developed a strong affinity to Drum N' Bass music, a style I never considered before I started writing. I still love trance, but drum n bass is where I concentrate my skills.
Lately, I've really been developing my sound, trying to do something more consitent, and yet still have enough dynamic to keep things insteresting. I'm not afraid to try new things, and I'm always wanting to learn, but this will be Uncle Roses.
At this point I only write music, but I'm trying to get into DJ-ing.
I love neurofunk. Matrix & Fierce changed my idea of what bass should sound like. I'm also into electro-house, and I listen to a lot of industrial. All the grit is making its way into my DnB.
There is a lot of great DnB from Soundclick. GeeViouS, djSkye, Breakbeatpimp, RAkoon - all great artists. Listening has really helped me to develop my sound, and I've gotten the chance to remix GeeViouS's great track, Sacrificial Chamber.
I listen to a lot of extreme metal - Nile, At the Gates, Emperor, Meshuggah, Opeth. And I try not to neglect the great progressive jazz from back in the day - Miles Davis, Mahavishnu, Frank Zappa, etc.
Just Reason at this point. I need a new keyboard, cause I smashed my old one.
