Spot those samples

Postby PaulX » 01 Jan 2010, 13:52

This thread is inspired by the "Making of Smack My Bitch Up" one. I just thought it would be a good idea to have a thread of the origins of some of the samples making up a famous song.

I'll kick us off with these tunes which go together to make up Fatboy Slim's Rockafeller Skank. I think I prefer the originals in this case... ;)


First the basic melody and rhythm - Sliced Tomatoes by The Just Brothers...

Add vocals from HBMS - Rock and Roll (Could Never Hip Hop Like This) Part 2
Check it out now ... the sample from 2' 30"... ;)

And now for that guitar riff. Beat Girl by the John Barry Orchestra (same guy who did the James Bond theme)...

I'm totally shocked that i was unaware of the savage plagiarism that occurs and is apparently the building blocks of dance music!!!

So does fatboyslim have to pay royalties back to the original track producers?

If i start mugging off tracks for samples do i have to say anything to anyone?

If they recognise it and the sample is long enough, yeah you do, I think.

There was a pretty big test case in the early 90s where Vanilla Ice (and Dr Dre, I expect) had to fight off being sued by Queen and David Bowie over the bassline on Ice Ice Baby. He ended up proving there was one extra note in his, meaning he didn't sample it, but re-recorded/re-wrote it.

It's a bit of a minefield, but as for sampling not being creative, I have to disagree. Crate digging for that perfect drum break, vocal or, well, anything is a genuine skill... for instance, Burials album contains samples from people like Christina Aguilera and Beyonce... but used in such a creative way that you'd probably never notice without being told. In a more traditional sense, I'd be hard pushed to say that a group like The Avalanches "cheated".

Or were you joking and I've just gobbled the bait? It strikes me that someone into Amen-based music would be ok with sampling.... :P

:roll:

It wasn't a "Gosh, look everyone! Fatboy Slim sampled other people's stuff!!! :o :o :o :o " shock horror thread. You're supposed to chip in with other examples, you cunts. :P

But don't post the bloody Winstons for every single track with an Amen break please... :nono:
