The cover of the song has twice the views of the original. Huge improvement on the original though I can dig the original too.

I really like covers, remixes, and sampling of songs. Taking something and putting a whole new spin on it is super cool. Doubly so if the original is great. Hate "not music no instruments just samples of other songs". Okay, lets see you rearrange a bunch of songs into a new song.

I think people should be able to criticize without a prerequisite of having to produce. I've never filmed a triple-A comic book action film, but I don't think that invalidates my distaste for the genre and where it's going.

There's a difference between criticizing music and disavowing a genre's existence. Nobody says comic book movies aren't movies.

The "that's not real music" attitude predates electronic remixes.

sampling is a technology/technique, a process if you will, not a genre. it’s been used on everything from hip-hop to MOTR rock to avant-garde free-form jazz to contemporary concert-hall classical.

people who complain about the ‘unoriginality’ or ‘derivativeness’ of sampling sound like people who complain that bob dylan jumped the shark when he ‘went electric’ and started playing guitar through an amplifier. lmfao like fucking seriously. the technology is 40 years old at this point.

besides, classical composers ‘sampled’ in their formal compositions too. music is full of quotations, blues riffs and licks, classical runs and leitmotifs, jazz standards,  etc. a contemporary classical composer might ‘sample’ wagner, in a sense. some of the greatest jazz quartets or live recordings of all time are ultimately them just ‘playing someone else’s song’. nobody called nina simone ‘hackneyed and unoriginal’ when she covered gershwin’s ‘i love you porgy’. they were too busy crying their eyes out in the presence of sheer creative genius.

it’s part of creativity. sampling expanded the horizons of music and tonality. like synthesisers and drum machines, it helped music to go beyond the constraints of classical instrumentation, of standard tuning, of white notes and black notes, of human rhythms, etc. sampling inaugurated an era of music as ‘material’, where you can make sounds out of everyday field sources as well as the usual instrumental repertoire.

this one guy with one machine (the AKAI MPC sampler) pretty much invented a whole new musical vocabulary.

single-handedly influenced the sound of 15 years of popular music.



pretty much everything was made-up from samples of old vinyl records, 'crate digging'. it's a subculture in-itself.

DJ Premier too though.

yeah, no question, top tier producer. but i think dilla has had a wider impact on music as a whole, in a crossover sense. if anyone ‘legitimated’ sampling to a common listener’s ear … can anyone doubt the creativity of ‘donuts’?

I just think of DJ Premier mapping ninja movie sounds to an akai, or RZA doing the same on a novation, and can't help but think about the progression hip hop production has made.

I've heard a few of the tracks off that Animal Collective album. Toro y Moi is also releasing a new album, and it sounds pretty good.

i've been going back through lots of their recent projects on the back of the new album.

one of the members, deakin, released a really good solo record in 2016. i missed it entirely.

I remember a teaching assistant being angry about this song back in college in christ 2014

Still hear it on the radio all the time.
Uncensored version is also on youtube if anyone wants to see Emily. R. naked.

Maybe people will cancel the song in 50 years.

There was school event where the students brought a karaoke machine to it. At the end of the event the male teachers and female teachers did a karaoke duet of the song above. The kids recorded it and there was a little worry among the teachers of getting in trouble for singing the song to each other.
