Thus far, all of the music in my SHIT! category has been… well, shit. But today I induct a new song that is actually really good…
I give you DJ ARCADE – BOUNCE LITTLE KITTY (RICHIE PLAY RE-TOUCH)
This jam comes with a QUESTION: How much do you need to contribute to a song before you can start taking credit for it???
Here’s the deal. This entire track is basically the DJ ARCADE original. All that RICHIE PLAY has done to alter it, is to slap in a chunk from LARRY TEE’s LET’S MAKE NASTY (from which the “bounce little kitty” vocals original come) at 1:54. He hasn’t EQed or done any further production to that chunk. It is nothing more than a beat match (pardon me if I’m getting too technical for you). If you’d like to check for yourself, here’s the original ARCADE version, below.
Is Richie’s re-touching really enough of a contribution to the tune for him to post it up with his name in the title??? There are a bunch more “re-touches”, in a similar vein, up on his SOUNDCLOUD.
Personally, I don’t think it’s quite right, but perhaps I’m being too anal. To be honest, I did download Richie’s version AND have played it out (hypocrite!).
So, I’d love to know what YOU think. Does Richie Play’s re-touch belong in the SHIT! category for reasons of bad Soundcloud etiquette??? Please advise.
Until we come to a consensus, in SHIT! is where it will sit.
