Here’s a (rhetorical) question. Which is more important, the end result of a song and the enjoyment it brings to fans, or the authenticity of the work put into it? In this case we’re going with the former, as although this track from TCP and Royalpony heavily samples Radical Redemption & D Sturb’s ‘Kill Me‘, the end result is (partially) transformed into a new idea.
It’s a tricky issue to deal with, with no answer set in stone. For now we’ll just try to enjoy the music though.
