“Human nature and how we experience it, or perceive it individually and collectively, is our main influence. Music is the dumpster that we throw that trash into and other people dig around in there for things that they can use or relate too. We all dig for the trash.” Flatlander, Death Grips producer and videographer, in an insightful but also frustrating interview with The Quietus. (I mean, how many times and in how many ways did Flatlander have to say that he doesn’t care for these comparisons to other artists — Odd Future, Eminem, DMX — only to have the interviewer press on?) Anyway! This is how every artist should answer the question, “Who are your primary influences?”
