One of the label’s latest offerings is a collaboration between three upcoming producers, John Christian, Arin Tone and Corey James on a song called ‘Collage’. Notwithstanding the name of the artist and title, however, the ‘new’ composition’s structure and synth and melody lines sound more like a melange of Swedish House Mafia’s ‘Greyhound’ than a truly original production. The former SHM single was a cross-breed monster that was embraced as much by radio programmers as it was festival circuit attendees.
With an already available over-abundance of international dance music, producing something truly original becomes increasing difficult. Nonetheless, there is a significant difference between ‘drawing inspiration’ and ‘plagarizing’ someone else’s original work.
Listen carefully to both songs and YOU be the judge!
