A short story that happened last week:
Look i made this folk remix of Europes Überanthem Alors on Danse not too long ago, Stromae is a good friend of chromemusic and we were the first ones last summer to start promoting his tune before he even got signed and brought him over to Berlin and bla, bla etc, etc. When Joe told me today my remix hit the #1 spot on the hypem charts, i was real glad, but he also said i wouldnt like it. (When i first posted my mix – it was barely 2 dozen people that “hearted” it. Got great feedback though, not only when i played it out but also the manager of “Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly” Paul Bonham wrote me how much he liked the tune and many more people etc.)
Along comes this blog called “duurt-lang.nl” grabs the remix off our blog and it hits the #1 spot on hypem. Great news, cool guys and thanks guys. Oh and by the way: they deleted my name, the name of the remix, the pic & most the tags my mp3 had. Most blogs add their tags to other blogs mp3s but always keep the names of all the artists on it (and the remixers)! Not them. They simply erased me and everything that said chromemusic, not on some random mp3 but on our own remix!
So no credit where a little credit is due! Thanks a lot duuuhhh-lang.nl – i made it a remix you made it a nameless mashup. Honestly i was disappointed big time by these guys and not much i could do about it, except salute all the guys that left gangsta comments on their blog post – it was a joy reading that (to be honest).
It was a moronic thing to do, but them guys from duuuuuh-lang apologized and re-upped it, which of course is a cool move but doesnt help once the tune has left the #1 position. damage is done, the benefit of sharing equals zero to us now. So cool blog indie shuffle has re-upped it as well (i salute you) with a proper mp3 tag and the mp3 they got from the dutch blog – thx guys, but this ones not gonna go back to the #1 spot. So let me re-up it as well (with the usual ‘artist vs artist’ crap, so that people pick up on it). Totally Ducks sick!
Share on Facebook, twitter, heart it on hypem, playgrounds, ipods and roca-pads lol, and spread this properly named mp3. For more of my remixes & other versions go here. NUFF SAID
