well there’s always some sort of VGM-style element in the tracks i make, and it’s through no intention of my own! it just so happens that a lot of my musical inspiration comes from old 90s video games, especially games like the Sonic the Hedgehog series & the Mega Man X series. i also have a bit of inspiration from more modern composers, like Toby Fox and Christopher Larkin!
on the more electronic side of things, i’ve listened to a lot of music from labels like NoCopyrightSounds and Monstercat, though the former i haven’t listened to in quite some time. musicians from those two labels are huge influences for me.
alongside all that, this track specifically took inspiration from an artist i’ve only seen in one or two places: https://soundcloud.com/shivaji/real
well that sure was a lot more than i expected to write
