I have always loved the music produced by a variation of artists, but some of the key ones which inspired me are listed below.
This album is one of my all time favorite albums by boogie wit da hoodie. I can't recall when I first heard this album but I still love the way the songs were made after about a million reruns. That might be a little exaggerated but I consider this album one of my more important influences. Whenever I find myself stuck on making a beat to a song, I always listen to one song and try to replicate its smooth vibes.
Whether its his way he starts off his songs with natural songs or his seemingly perfect upbeats, I find his influence in almost all my songs. He showed to me how bring EDM to the next level of hype and the power of keys and vocals. I can't point out when I first heard his music but they still motivate me to put my best effort in music.
This song is by far one of my most favorite music pieces featuring J. Cole. I've always wanted to be able to blend to different styles of music styles together as well as this song. This song has been out for awhile but it is still one of the most frequently played songs in my playlists.
I love this song 1st for its way of blending heavy bass and flutes, 2nd for its surround sound feel throughout the song, and lastly its motivating tune. Mike Gao truly created a masterpiece in my mind and I always trying to create something equally as great.
