Currently in the United Kingdom to record with English boy band JLS, producer Bangladesh stopped into Tim Westwood’s show to discuss a slew of topics.
One subject Bangladesh broached was other producers swagger jacking his style. “I wouldn’t even say they name. I don’t think people know they name. I don’t wanna like, put ’em on blast. …[Rihanna’s] ‘Birthday Cake’ is definitely my style. Rihanna is my style. There’s a lot of them. I think I’m the influence of the young producers. I think a lot of it is my style.”
“Big Sean’s [‘Dance (A$$)’ ], same producers. I think we’re getting somewhere with this,” said Bangladesh, referring to production duo Da Internz. “They stealing my swag. I’m dripping it everywhere. They pick it up after I do it.”
The “A Millie” producer also identified some of his musical influences. “I was inspired by Timbaland at the time. He created a whole new style which I think gave me inspiration to have my own style. Organized Noize. When I first heard OutKast, I really knew what producing was. Really production from top to bottom. Production, flawless.”
