In a world of repetitive R&B, hip-hop, and drum n’ bass, it may seem unlikely that Whodiniz should be so very capable of highly varied music with quality behind each track. His background, however, explains all, in terms of both instrumentation and sheer, musical taste.
Whodiniz sites as influences (among many, many others) artists such as: MFdoom, Kanye, Gorillaz, Stevie Wonder, Jamiroquai, DJ Shadow, Dr. Dre, DJ Quick, Bob Marley, Outkast, Fela Kuti, Femi Kuti, Black Eyed Peas, James Brown, Jimi Hendrix, Maroon 5, Quincy Jones, Wyclef Jean, Miles Davis and, as Whodiniz calls him, “Big Bad Barry White.” The list starts with DJs such as MFdoom and DJ Shadow, and ends with blues and jazz greats such as Miles Davis and Barry White. Any artist with credentials like that is bound to produce music any music fan is likely to enjoy. Of his influences Whodiniz only remarks, “There’s loads more, but these come to mind first.”
