Hey guys, so my question here is simple... kind of. The song in my sig is my favorite one to boot and I would like to promote myself heavily with it, and aim hard to get it signed. (although honestly i dont know anything, i mean ANYTHING about the whole getting your songs signed deal yadda yadda) I have been researching heavily but I feel like most places i look the article just beats around the bush for days on days... Anyways, this song I am talking about uses two main samples. The first one is pretty extensive, it is a Jazz sample apparently from Douglas Adams' audio book Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (seriously), and I don't know how I would go around contacting the publishers, record label or even Douglas Adams for permission to use that sample.... The second sample is one of the most overly used ones in history, James Brown's various hollers and such from his tracks. One is a yell that leads into the drop, and the others are the random grunts I use through out, as well as the Hit Me! sample. I have been searching online for ideas and the primary ones are to either ditch the samples, try and remake them myselves, find someone to remake them, or just say f*** it and push my luck and go with them in the song and no permissions. As I am not up and coming and no one really knows my music, there is a small chance I would get caught but honestly I would rather not get caught at all and get them cleared. SO what the hell?? Haha I would love some honest feedback, and if anyone on here thinks they can recreate those samples for me, I would be more than happy. The jazz one doesnt seem too too hard but honestly i know nothing about trumpets and such. Thanks guys!
