I don't understand how those guys can get away with it! The song should rather be named 'Kim Joffrey - Take Me to Rotterdam City of Love' :)

Nothing big but:

Manian - Turn The Tide (Dave Darell Remix) @ 2:30

sounds pretty much like Eric Prydz - Pjanoo:

I know it's "just a few chords" but the quantization (variation or whatever it's called) is more or less correct.

And NO - for me it's not a sigh of respect to copy someone...

Copying is bad!!! Remember on the old forum that there were quite a few good examples. Mischa Daniels, who I really like , has done some copying of Axwell which is not good..

Though being inspired by another artist is a good thing. The first time I heard Pjanoo I really thought it sounded like Lifelike & Kris Menace - Discopolis. It's not the same track, not copied, but in my ears it seems like Mr. Prydz got inspired by this track..

I'm not saying that they have the same sound. Cause their productions sounds really different from each other. But in this case I'm thinking about the melody and the feel of the track if you understand what I mean...

Well the tack itself is not that bad if you need a commercial one... but still I wouldn't touch it since I can't understand this way of making music!
