Darius' beats are mostly inspired by artists from the oldschool-hiphop era, but also todays artists like Pouya, Freddie Dredd and more and mixes these both styles together. On the other hand, RFLX stands for hard hitting Trap and Dubstep. The inspiration for that kind of music come from artists like Eptic, Getter or Space Laces. His new ID's got big influence from the punk and metal scene, instruments like the e-guitar and hardly distorted sounds are taking a big role in his music.
The musical career began at a very young age by learning different instruments like the violin or the piano. He took several courses about music theory at a very young age. In his childhood he listened mainly to rock music because of his brother, who is a big fan of that genre. At the beginning of his teenage he discovered more and more other genres like rap music, but also the work from Skrillex and Borgore. At that point he decided that he wants to do his own music and bought the cheapest version of FL Studio 11 back then.
Ever since, he archived more and more knowledge how to create sounds, to mix and master and writing own music.
For his RFLX project is a lot to expect in the near future.
