You may remember this name from The Thrillseekers pres. Hydra - Amber (Skylex Remix)....

So this guy just took one of the most legendary uplifting trance tracks and just humiliated it with cheesy EDM sound :mad:

Skylex - Lift (Original Mix) [2019] (starting from 0:34)

Sean Tyas - Lift (Original Mix) [2006] (starting from 1:48)

Also remember this causing a stir back in the day. Although I think it turned out that Kid Vicious was one of Tiesto's many ghost producers (Did he ever make a track himself ffs? ) which would explain the...uhh... "similarity"

Tiesto was commissioned to remix 'Re-Form' first.

'Urban/Suburban Train' was born out the same project, using some of RvG's original parts/melody.

RvG was credited as co-writer/producer on the sleeve of 'Urban Train' accordingly.

melody @ 2.34


melody @ 3.33


(clarification note: I wouldn't at all classify this as ripoff, just similar notes/melody, both tracks are utterly unique pieces of beauty)

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

I sense some frustration in that video.

But pretty much all of those comparisons are on point, so yeah, I guess the conclusion is valid.

That Cape Point > Insidious rip-off is probably the most blatant in the clip. Brave > Not Enough Time is also rather blatant. Actually this whole video is so bad haha.

Because its such a simple riff,it might be available on a sample pack somewhere and both producers have used it. Will Atkinson has a long history of taking existing famous melodies and making them his own e.g. Numb The Pain (from Strange World) and theres also a track off his new album which is a blatant rip off of an older track but i cant quite place it...

Just finished listening to Renegade System set on twitch few minutes ago and he played this tune, which immediately reminded me of Paradise!

I found no info about Andrea Montorsi taking a "Paradise" sample so I consider this as a straight rip-off.

Andrea Montorsi ‎- Don't Leave Me (Original Hardtrance Mix) [2007] (starting from 3:56)

Fridge - Paradise (1998) (starting from 1:26)

You do know that Fridge - Paradise isnt an original melody? The sample is taken from Vangelis - Rachels Song from the movie Bladerunner (1982).

Solarcoaster's melody is from this :

yeh, that,

or

way out wests melody is from that, and solarstone's from theirs,

or

Both way out west AND solarstone used that melody for inspiration

or

all of them simultaniously just thought it was a great melody not realizing it had been made before by the previous party. ;)

The withnail theme came years before hehe...Solarcoaster is widely known to be based on it. I suspect WOW aswell.

All-known Gaia track based on older date Black Hole release. Not full rip-off of it, but very similar sound.

These both tunes were out last year with a few months difference, but I have a feeling the first one was ghost-produced by Billy Gillies - just a lot of similar samples + same bass.

Hennes & Cold - First Step (D10 Extended Tech Remix) [02.09.2019]

Billy Gillies - Hit The Floor [08.04.2019]

D10 has produced hard trance for 15 years so I dont think its ghosted.

Billy has been one of my favourite tech trance artists during the last 2 years.

I just found this melody a bit similar to "Summer Calling" remix.

Billy Gillies - Chemical (2020) (starting from 0:54)

Andain - Summer Calling (Airwave Club Mix) (2002) (starting from 4:17)
