Latest post of the previous page:

What bothers me is that this people actually have some knowledge of how to produce, and some time to do so. I don't! I have to study and my girlfriend absorves most of my free time, and I'm not even in Spain so I can't really sit down and focus on getting how to do this shit right... And then there is this people, that use that 'talent' in the worst way possible, trying to build themselves by copying, ripping other people's work. It bothers me a lot cos if I were them I wouldn't waste my time like they do.

Pure producing needs not that much talent... technically spoken... but much more the rest...

i think copying is not that bad if u do it wisely, and if dont rip off a track 1:1.
if u are catching some good ideas and be creative with that, thats fine .. but it's the same case with the preset-stuff in vst plugins, thats why everything sounds the same atm..

Hm, while I was checking out some random songs on spotify I ran across this one:

'Markus Gardeweg Feat. Michael Feiner - Fairplay'
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvegI4pjad0

And the scary thing about this song is that it reminds me of Axwells 'Together' and OYH. The vocals reminds me about 'together' and the lead reminds me of OYH (the massive preset called Children Night or something).

EDIT: Now that I think of it, i'm 100% it's the same vocalist in that video as in Together. Great vocalist!

Ok, this is insane. Listen to the build-up when the synth comes in, in 'Together' (around 2:47). The synth in together is 3 chords that goes downwords. In the fairplay song it's the same synth, same vocalist, but the synth chords are going upwards instead of downwards.
All I can say is WOW!
