This is rather amusing...
Ant TC1 is the biggest dude in dnb IMO.
Thanx for this thread... an hour later discovered myself reading a ten year old doa thread about some guy called Bluthunda who sped up Breakfastaz breaks tunes and pretended that they were his own creation - apparently dj fresh was just about to play them at fabric before it was pointed out.
I'm all in for loosening some intellectual property regulations, but blatantly just ripping off without giving any credit whatsoever disgusts me.
I was just reading the exact same thing.
As for this, Ant took this like such a champ, many would have completely shat on this dude's career.
Anyone got the track title?
Esco - Stimulate
It's here at 32:19
and here's original tune
Funny that comes from a guy that put out a clone of "The Nine".
Dunno why people get so upset about this, he clearly copied some of the stuff and it's not good but it's only a demo, compared to the other track above. Guy has even apologised etc. so no need to publicly humiliate the guy. humiliate is a bit harsh but it's not to his favor that's for sure. Shame this took this route.
Funny middle ground this one. While a similar pattern & sound may be followed he's not taken a full section of a tune and used it as his own has he?
That's a bit embrassing
So is misspelling embarrassing
It's almost embracing
like that festival large room house kid martin garrix, his animals track was just half loops and ripping bits from other large room house tracks
though its still out of order, i was expecting to hear him rip the whole intro or something, all he took was 1 bars of drums? though you can hear from the other elements in the track the guy can still produce so why he would do this is odd!
Oh, I didn't intend to shame anyone really, just thought it was a rather funny turn of events and figured I'd post it here. I already hold Ant in high regard for his contributions to the scene, and this incident makes me respect him continually cuz you can tell how chill Ant really is, as others have mentioned, he liked the tune and probably would've played it out if it wasn't for the direct snatching of a full loop from Hexton. In addition, Noisia seemingly didn't know about the original tune, I guess you could say they really like Hexton now!
Also apparently the offending tune was not a lone wolf
Anyone got a link to his SoundCloud? Apparently, this guy also ripped that recent Noisia-Ivy Lab collab.
it is not enough manipulated. It screams the nine - even if it might not be straight copy. It's not a free release, it's a licensed track.
The guy copied a drum loop not denying it, it's bad but it's a demo and therefor not needed to comment about it publicly IMO.
problem was the drum loop was like the main part of the track, made it incredibly obvious to anyone who new the original
I find Hexton to be a clone of Total Science & SPY - Ploc Monster. Same exact idea at 2:15:
But it's only a similar sound / arrangement. They've not borrowed actual music from the track. It's like saying 2 drummers from 2 different bands can't play the same drum patterns?
You're also discrediting the entire creation of D&B through the amen break and the likes.
I get your point but the fact it was released upfront as an ode (with no original samples), most were cool with it.
Of course especially as Hexton is fairly new! No one is denying that but so is it obvious that Direct Approach is a copy of The Nine. I don't think it's more valid of an argument? And I didn't see anyone from badcompany calling out people on facebook with a statement. It's unnecessary.
