Right, also Ancient HistoryI think one of the Parade of the Athletes tracks borrows from Airbase/Ozone/The Scarab as well. That whole album was full of references to previous work, i.e. Coming Home was essentially Theme from Norefjell (DJ Jan & Christophe Chantzis remix).
Yes. It's also creative and dissimilar enough to be treated as a separate track.Correct. Since it's a reference to his own work, I wouldn't exactly say it's a ripoff. It's a much bigger issue when the original is from someone else.
Also in Trance Arts - BacktrackingThe same, fucking, sequence. EVERYWHERE.
Jono's fault by the way...
Exactly!!!!!The problem I have with the whole RAMsterdam track, is how much praise it gets. Somehow, it's like in the top 10 best ever. It's a classic. I don't know how that's even possible when it's a track so clearly re-built on a previous hit by a different producer.
Yep, they have similar concepts and use very similar samples and basslines but Ancient History relies more on the flute, whereas Lethal Industry uses that distorted violin. Ancient History is also more tribal-like thanks to the middle section with the drums. Clearly, Ancient History was influenced by Lethal Industry, but as you mentioned they are dissimilar enough to be distinct tracks. Ancient History also works better for the purpose it was made (to be played at the 2004 Olympics).Yes. It's also creative and dissimilar enough to be treated as a separate track.
And the sad thing is Solarstone, as the Pure Trance owner, had no clue about the rip-off...Wow, didn't know that many tracks sounded so similar.
Also that Balderas His Theme ripoff is awful, can't believe someone actually had the nerve to rip off Undertale and hint at it in the title.
