I’ve said it before, and it may be obvious at this point. But Røyksopp will always be a big inspiration for me. Especially Melody AM and Senior albums.
Visionary and big name for a reason in the game. Visionary.
An srtist that stays true to who he is and what he wants to express.
One of the founders of the ambient and electronic dance music crossover. Been listening closely ever since I was a teenager. What inspires me most about these guys is the quantity, consistency, and quality they continue to put out to this day.
Was miles ahead with the blending of improvised jazz, blues and electronic music. Timeless stuff.
Irreplaceable music, one of a kind.
