Justice admit to stealing samples

Dirty dance-meisters Justice have admitted that they don't clear all their samples (opens in new tab). While not clearing samples is hardly unusual, admitting it certainly is, particularly when the source of the samples includes big names like Queen (opens in new tab), 50 Cent (opens in new tab) and Slipknot (opens in new tab).


"They are such short samples no one can recognise them. The ones from Slipknot, for example, are just tiny bits of the voice," explain the French funksters in an MTV (opens in new tab) interview.


Listening to Genesis (opens in new tab), it's hard to spot any sign of Freddie, Curtis or even #8, so is Justice's sampling fair use, or should they really be making their own sounds? Let us know what you think, especially if you can spot any of the samples...
