That's pretty damn cool actually. The site that is - never heard of whosampled.com. Couldn't give a shiat about the app.

I bet your phone blows up as soon as this analyzes a rap song.

The first 30 seconds of any Girl Talk album would slag the phone.

Night Ripper
Feed The Animals
All Day

The first two albums you can download off the label's site for a "donation", All Day was free last time I checked.

80s hip hop: James Brown mostly
2000+ hip hop: A pop song by the whitest dudes you can think of.

Why does this need to be a mobile app?

If you like Girl Talk, give a listen to Ludachrist.

An app that shows you what 60s soul song is being ripped off again? About time.

Amen, Brother.

Thanks, I will have to check it out.

I love me some Girl Talk.

Seems like it could just figure out what song was playing and just look up the details about the samples on their website. It would certainly take less battery life.

/now in the right thread
//at least it wasn't a haiku ode to pederasty like last time

As would a typical Coldplay CD.

I think there is great chance for recursion here. Lots of songs seem to sample off of each other.

/either that or all popular music sounds the same to me

When you play any rock or pop or blues or country song from the last 40 years, it just says "Lead Belly"

I don't have the app, but I found this on my own last month. It might be familiar to some of you.

It doesn't count as sampling if you use the same guitar riffs over and over and over.

Will Smith just crapped his pants


Along with every other hip hoppity "artist"

i can pick out the construction set most people are using, it's not just old tracks that are sampled. fark you very much Ableton - it should be named Enableton - enabing simpletons.

That song has been on my go-to-bed playlist for a year or so. I love it.

Best bit of sampling I've seen for a long time. The Mother of all funk chords:-

That, and anything by Coldcut.

Guide to the samples used in "Say Kids, What Time Is It?" by Coldcut...

I should add that Coldcut track was butchered to isolate the samples. Here's the full track.

This could be really useful for doing a harmonic mix with a twist. Find a few tracks with matching keys that use a commonly sampled drum or bass line (example: the eight-beat drum beat from the beginning of "Blue Monday by New Order), which itself was ripped off from a Donna Summer B-side, then center the mix around that. There's a remix of a version of People Are Still Having Sex that uses it, I'd be interested to see what else has it hidden away.

Why would an iPhone user care if the stuff they liked was appropriated from someone else?
