Childish Gambino is one of my favorite artists to listen to. His music and beats follow a certain structure which I try to replicate in my compositions. I also like how in songs like "Sweatpants", he is able to effortlessly change the energy of the song throughout its playtime. His ability to control how the listener feels is something I try to have in my songs.
Drake's music is very interesting to me in the sense of the way his beats are used. His beats, in and of itself, are not very complex. However, using these simple beats, he is able to create catchy hits in which his songs appeal to a large audience. I try to not overcomplicate my beats in an effort to appeal to the listener using "simple" beats.
Michael Jackson is a huge inspiration to me because of how efficiently he is able to cause the listener to feel a certain emotion in a song. That kind of reach toward the listener is something I try to achieve in every one of my compositions.
