Had to post early today because that Lady Gaga picture is giving me nightmares.
So when Kopedale hits me and is like “Yo download this track it is such a Mulqueen track” I’m pretty stoked.
I peep the track, it starts out as a banger, and then, at the 1:30 mark I’m like shiiit I’ve heard this song before?!?
1) The Pope of Dope (Original Mix)-Afrojack
So yeah. this track pretty much has it all. steadily rising affected vocals over thumping bass-line, NORE sample, alarm-like synths, and progressive decreasing of loop length leading into the drop. In laymen’s terms, it’s a dutch banger. But like I said in the foreword, I had heard this song before…The question was, Where? Then it hit me. This song sounds exactly like Highbloo’s Remix of “I Love London”!!!!!!
2) I Love London (Highbloo Remix)- Crystal Fighters
Now, I don’t want to accuse D2D favorite Afrojack of plagiarism, but these songs follow the exact same progression in the buildup, and especially in the drop at the 1:30 mark. (also the fact that they both drop at exactly 1:30 is slightly disconcerting.) I guess we have to look on the bright side…I mean, too much dutch house is never a bad thing right?
