Reply To: Legality of Samples
Good points, and yeah, a noticeable shift in the “sound” of the larger label, although I wonder if their sublabel has to adhere to the same governance.
Here’s the “20 Questions” sample source:
And as someone who loves a good sample flip, and has sampled nearly their entire record & CD collection, I think using samples can push ideas. Sometimes the sample doesn’t even end up in the track, you end up writing a bunch of other ideas to compliment the sample, then you realize when you mute the sample everything else is working great. Have fun, don’t worry about legality, just keep writing.
