Musical influences[edit]

dBridge takes different influences for each track he makes. He begins producing by creating the drum beats first, and then takes inspiration from the beats to decide where the instrumentation will go from there. His music is also influenced by the way he is feeling at time of composition and he loves hearing imperfections in music.[5]
