local DJ named SERAPH!M. He taught me how to DJ, got me started on what to look for in vinyl and being a Jungle, Drum & Bass, Garage, 2step DJ helped as well.
Any local DJs inspire me.
All heavy hitters of the Drum & Bass and Trance genres. Some of the first trance I heard was Tiesto and Andy Hunter. Above & Beyond/Anjunabeats play a huge factor now. Drum & Bass, all of them from Spor, Evol Intent to J.Davis, Stumblebum, Kubiks, and Spearhead guys.
