Rage'd

I hate people. I hate the music industry. I hate pop stars. GAH.


This has to be the worst piece of shit I've ever heard. I want to fucking rip someone's eyeballs out. Okay a little harsh. But it's still pretty bad! So bad it makes me cry. HOW DID THEY GET THE RIGHTS TO DO THIS. HOW. Leave a comment to express your anger.

JoJo - You Take Me (Around the World) [right click to download AND IMMEDIATELY DELETE IT]








On the bright side, not everyone sucks at sampling Around the World. Case in point, Crydamoure's first release - [CRYDA 001] Santa Claus / Holiday On Ice

Le Knight Club - Holiday On Ice [right click to download]








Raging,
Prez Jordan

PS - To all the haters who don't believe Holiday On Ice samples Around the World - CLICK HERE. Listen around 2:00, it becomes very clear.

It's songs like this that make me think it should be illegal to sample anything post-'95. Although, on the bright side, it's not Will.I.Am.

Holiday on Ice didn't sample Around the World..

Funkow said...

Surely it didn't. What's the point of sampling YOURSELF?

Funkow said...

And about that piece of shit - it's piece of shit

untra said...

Will.I.Am or Jojo
Pick your poison

At Least William's version is actually a remix.

holiday on ice does in fact sample around the world

And whosampled is always right?

Anon, if you can't hear it than you're just plain dumb.

"HOW DID THEY GET THE RIGHTS TO DO THIS" I'll tell you how! Daft Punk let them because they're in it for the money! If someone wanted to sample your song and you could make alot of money from it you wouldn't say no. It's gone out of control and they are saying yes to too many people.

Its a sad state of affairs when on hype machine the disco on ice version wasnt favourited by anybody til i came along, yet the JoJo version was

DefensiveCaptain said...

Let's be honest guys, she's slamming hot so it's probably OK.

You think if they could afford a daft punk sample they could also afford someone good to produce the song, though.

guy manuel de homem cristo is part of le knights club and daft punk so what does it matter!

prez jordan said...

Louis, promise me you'll never become that :P

untra said...

I don't know. Daft Punk has become really commercial as of late, especially considering album #4 could be the soundtrack to Tron Legacy.

Who is Daft Punks current manager, out of curiosity? Busy P stepped down as of last year.

I thought DP were packing it in as one of them was goin deaf?

Good God.
I don't listen to Top 40 but, is this really what the mainstream music industry has become? What, run out of ideas guys?! Here they are, recycling original, progressive music (some would say - art), into something like THIS? Daft Punk should hang their heads in shame.
Sell outs.

Deej said...

People like Timbaland and Kayne West do this because they have no creativity whatsoever themselves.

Cheets said...

sounds like some people are a little butthurt cause one of their most influential and fave artists decided to be kind and let someone else sample their work. so the financials may have been an incentive too - but give them some integrity, give them some credit. "sell out" - please.

hani said...

THIS JOJO TRACK IS THE MOST FUCKING GAY PATHETIC IDIOTEQUE SHIT EVER. SHE SHOULD COMMIT SUICIDE IF SHE HAS STILL A BIT OF DIGNITY WHATSOEVER

Anon, TBang had some ear problem and quit for like 2 years, but last year he DJed at an Ed Banger show

Boba Fettuccini said...

@ Deej: And what Daft Punk does is any different? Sampling Barry Mannilow? George Duke?

Anonymous said...

@ Boba, Daft Punk does it with style. That style is house

and @ prez jordan, I do hear it, but seriously, it's not sampling. Same synth, but not necessarily sampled. Why would you sample something you did in another band?

Tiiu said...

@ Cheets

Integrity? Credit? For what? Successfully ripping off a song that was probably one of the most influential for the Millennial Generation? In that case, congratulations Daft Punk.

I think you are being too forgiving. It's one thing to let others sample music once in a while - fine. But Daft Punk is guilty of this on several counts . What Louis La Roche says is right - they are saying yes to too many people.

When it comes to integrity, wouldn't you think that they would want to preserve their music? Daft Punk has practically made history and set the stage for modern electro/house. That is something to be proud of, and not to mention protected from being tainted by teen-pop artists like Jojo. Daft Punk is letting these music corporations re-use (and ruin) some brilliant music just to make an extra buck. Last time I checked, that is what you call a sell out.

This should clear up anything between Daft Punk and Le Knight Club

Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (born Guillaume Emmanuel Paul de Homem-Christo on February 8, 1974)[1] is a founding member of the French house music duo Daft Punk, along with Thomas Bangalter. He has also produced several works from his record label Crydamoure with label co-owner √Čric Chedeville. He and Chedeville formed the musical duo Le Knight Club. Aside from music production, de Homem-Christo has also worked as a film director.
