    Exhibit A:
    Sigma

    Possible Original


    Exhibit B:
    Sigma

    Possible Original


    Opinions? Am I crazy? Every time I hear a song by Sigma, I seem to already have a song that uses a very similar melody.

    I very much doubt it. Although I do agree that the Barbara Steisand remix sounds very smilar to Space Time, so much so that I thought it was Delta Heavy who done the remix when I first heard it...

    But na. Plus, there's two ppl in Sigma

    Na, I can't imagine they would. There are so many tunes out there that you're bound to come across some that sound very similar.

    Sigmas remix of barbara streisand was terrible- hardly included the best bit about it, which were obviously the woo's.

    reminded me more of 'Rock it VIP' than 'Space time' though.

    I don't get & never will get these threads.

    The majoity of all music borrow melody/sound etc from others, its called inspiration...

    Unless you're straight up biting somebodies drums/samps etc then thats all it is.

    People seem to forget that jungle/d&b was born out of plaugurism & blatant illegal sampling & now everybody wants to go on a Witch Hunt everytime something sounds similar.

    :rolleyes:

    My mistake for referring to Sigma as a he, I don't listen to them much.

    I guess the inspiration argument makes a lot of sense here. Consider my argument refuted. :D

    When you have a scene that's been around for a couple of decades, there's bound to be similarities in certain elements of tunes. It's completely unintentional.

    There will never be an original melody or beat created again that is mucically sound; that has been a known fact for years now.

    Dubstep is a great example of people trying to prove that statement incorrect; but in reality only reaffirms it.
