  1. I searched and couldn’t find anything, but I know we’ve talked about this before and it’s probably a thread: Reading the harmony thread and several others on here about “rules” and all those pesky little standards we all have regarding them got me curious. What are all your opinions of sampling other artists work- rules, etiquette, what should or shouldn’t be, etc. Not trying to open the whole “is a dj a musician” debate at all- I’m only specifically talking about making a “non-remix” track, or whatever. Your original work- how do u go about deciding what’s off limits or not. No judgement at all, just curious about everyone’s process. Personally, I draw the line with sampling things that I like, which are “too close” to the artists I may consider in the same field as me. And this can affect the way I like music too. Examples: can’t stand listening to Front Line Assembly or ltj bukem sample afx. I still like those artists a lot, but those tracks I can’t really get into. The ideal sample for me is something like the background jazz music in a 70s instructional record or whatever- u know what I mean. The crate digging archaeological aspect has always been what I am into. What I dig. But that doesn’t mean I don’t listen to plenty of stuff that has no rules. In some ways I feel restricted, but I can’t escape my rules. I do like dj shadow, or fsol, who have both sampled things that would have been “off limits” for me. Bjork, tangerine dream, jean Michael jarre- I just think they don’t belong chopped up in my stuff. Again, this is no judgement at all- I really just want opinions on it. I read an article in grooves magazine once, years ago, where this guy was talking about sampling being like fast food, and it not satisfying you the same way creating something without samples would. He could have been talking about sample cd packs, tho. That brings up other concepts too- what other media is ok to sample (I don’t really have any rules with movies/tv etc)- I never liked the sample pack thing- but I have used them a couple times, really rarely and still trying to use obscure or outdated ones from cds or whatever. Amen, think, Apache- these are all ok to me because they have been sampled to shit. Idk- just wanna know your thoughts on it!
  2. I think we need to finish our aborted project of getting an audio version of the 21st-century masterpiece "Forum Rules" recorded for posterity. I've kicked us off by inviting a special guest to introduce the rules and read the first few sections. Someone else take over for a few sections and then whoever else wants to carry on can pick up from where it left off. Let's hear those beautiful voices! WATMM Rules 01.mp3
  3. Dear Mr Brian Dance, I am very sorry that I used a bad word in my first post to you here on internet, it was harsh and uncalled for. I was using the word mostly because I'm very excited about the possibririty of a new Aphex album. I hope I did not drive you away from WATMM because WATMM is good. The mods are good too even when they are Australian. I trust this heartfelt apology will discharge my social debt and satisfy those people I offended with the "F word". Sincerely, Andy Stephen Edit: edited for accuracy, spelled my name wrong the first time.
  4. I thought there was already a thread about this, so I searched thoroughly and found nothing. Having said that, here are the rules (to avoid this thread from getting too clunky when loading: - 1 post per page / per member. If you want to post more than one cover, wait after someone else to posts or wait until the next page to do so. Try not to be a brute and load a bunch of clips in one post. - You can post youtube clips, but only if they are of the cover version of the song (if you really want to be kind, just hyperlink it). - If you want people to hear the original, post it as a hyperlink, preferably with the text of the song/original artist. Feel free to hide youtube vids in spoilers too. I think that may help things load faster, but I could be wrong. Here is an example of a proper post... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MaymsFzWKQ Original: You next.
