Did Stoneface & Terminal release a template or is this plain out plagiarism?

They say that one picture is worth a thousand words. What about one video then? Classic video when it comes to rip-offs in trance :D

Scooter probably takes the title for rip off merchants right?

Every single early Dirt Devils track.

rips off/was inspired?? (or was it ghost produced??)

Mark Sherry & David Forbes' Public Domain project, tracks that came before Above & Beyond, examples:

I'm not sure what you're saying here...?

Which Dirt Devils tracks do you think ripped off the examples you posted?

Interestingly, Above & Beyond also worked with Brasstooth in their early days. He was a member of The Croydon Dubheads, for whom Jono & Paavo provided Dirt Devils and Free State remixes, and Paavo did two solo remixes for Brasstooth under the name Silky Mac.

Also the title of A&B's Hard-On Recordings, made for Dirt Devils releases, is very likely inspired by PD's Xtrahard label.

I think this is a stretch. "Hard" describes the style of trance they made, and a "Hard On" is a common euphemism for an erection.

Can anyone confirm this one. I think I might be going crazy or just imagining it but seems someone got very 'inspired' by Ferry Corsten, just 2 months between their release too...

Songs within the same subgenre (in this case, kinda like progressive house/trance) and released so close to one another might use similar sample packs, which is why on the surface they seem similar. After hearing both for a bit, I don't think Another Ambition drew any inspiration from Ferry Corsten. In fact, Ferry Corsten's track at 1:47 reminds me of the Gerudo Valley theme from Ocarina of Time - I think they share a few chords in common. The little melody from Another surface's track is vastly different.
This is coming from someone who has no background in music. In my uneducated opinion, I think you're just imagining it. :p

Might be, never thought that someone like Ferry might use samples, but thats mostly because I am naïve maybe. There is certainly some similarities in a few points. Not saying that they stole the idea or whatnot. As for the musical background I had never learned music theory, but I have been djing for a while so I'd like to think I can hear certain things from time to time...

OOPS my bad I thought you meant me by no background in music, I might need glasses, is my face red with embarrassment. I am not going to edit the comment though and you can hear a lot more than you give yourselve credit, am saying as a long time listener that started djing recently...


I've been saving this one for a long time I even have a mash up from those two songs.

So those two, same key and from a certain point absolutely same structure and few melody similarities. I am thinking Ron With Leeds used it a reference track and hence the perfect structure similarity and maybe a few more similarites...
