Stealing samples...

Stealing beats is something that is done regularly, and most of the times stealing isn't the appropriate word for it.
Laidback Luke for example, has done an excellent job with one of his latest productions: Blogger (with a title like that you are sure to get some extra points on the blogs). It samples Anasthasia from T99, a techno classic from the early nineties, a song that everyone knows from somewhere. In this case I don't mind, because this song has gotten his credits a long time ago, so Laidback Luke can't claim that he invented the synths.

But sometimes, stealing the beats someone invented and sampling them is something that's not so innocent. You might remember that we posted some tracks by upcoming Russian producer The Mould(check that post here), who has now found a home under the safe wings of The Proxy. Dj Antention however, seems to have taken the exact same beats as him, and he putted it in his track "Go!".
I don't know who was first, and since they are both very unknown producers, I give Dj antention the benefit of the doubt.

To finish this post, I have something more optimistic. Dj Stern will be releasing his first album on Leonizer records, and the teaser for his track "Manouche" really got my attention right away. Have a look at it, you won't regret!
