Jenkees creates a variety of music ranging from electronic music to hip hop to rock and roll using pianos, keyboards, and various PC-controlled electronic synthesizers. He uses keyboard and synthesizer synthetic voices to add a variety of instruments into his sound. The result is a combination of rock and roll with techno or trance-influenced rock opera. In some of his YouTube videos he plays a harmonica in his slower tempo songs.
