Basically obsessed with beats. All started when I bought my first sampler back in 98 and was messing around with breaks, Drum N Bass, and house. Later on, alot of my friends got into underground hip hop and freestyling. I started making beats for them and we played at house parties all the time. Still make make some deep house/dance style music, but mostly hip hop now.
Been producing beats since 98, house, hip hop, and downtempo/electro.
Not right now, but I'm a member of the Unsung Might Few, a Hip Hop act out of Maui so they rock my sounds whenever they got shows.
Really too many to list, but definitely love many different styles of music - everything from Chopin to Maceo Parker, to Zeppelin and Heiroglyphics.
