    This has always made me curious... I find it rather hard to believe that he got the permission rights to use the vocals of "The Temptations" and "Marvin Gaye." Isn't it illegal to use samples without permission? How did he get away with using samples from such prolific artists?

    I'd find it rather hard to believe those artists care about their vocals being used in other tracks..

    Yeah I'm referring to the album "Netsky" from 2010. I'm surprised I've seen no thread on this issue.

    I'm not sure how does this kind of thing work, but I'd say he (or Hospital) got in touch with the owner of those rights (be it artist, artist and label, whoever else) and agreed on some terms (meaning he might have payed them or had to credit them in the release info, probably both).

    yes this thread is badly needed.

    it's a pressing issue of ultimate urgency.

    if he didn't clear samples then he needs to be dragged through the streets, hung from a lampost and shot at dawn, like they did with stalin.

    how dare he use part of other people's songs in his own tunes.

    the sick, thieving bastard.

    Nah but you can't compare Marvin Gaye/The Temptations to The Winstons.

    No, I don't see any credits for Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Radiohead etc.

    if they're credited then the sample was cleared.


    threads gone on too long.

    alaska has a point, no need to be hostile and trash his argument. maybe it's hospital's pulling power, or the samples aren't prominent enough to be all that noticeable to the discerning ear
