We just put up our latest edit on Soundcloud which pairs Cut Copy’s “Sun God” with Chicago’s “Street Player”, a sample made famous by Kenny Dope’s “The Bomb” and most recently, Pitbull’s “I Know You Want Me”.
Sun God (Its Overture’s Street Player Edit) by Its Overture
We wrote it up on our site like this:
“When Cut Copy dropped “Take Me Over” a lot of people took note of its strong resemblance to Fleetwood Mac’s “Everywhere”. Whether they were biting, borrowing or paying homage is up for others to decide but they certainly made no secret of Stevie Nicks & Company’s general influence on them during the making of “Zonoscope”, their third LP.
Hearing the album’s 15-minute closing opus “Sun God”, another song-specific melodic ancestor leapt out at us: Chicago’s “Street Player”, best known as the source of Kenny Dope’s house classic “The Bomb”. So we proceeded to do what we do and put the two together by cutting the Cut Copy in half (no pun), matching the melodies, and finally, giving their epic electronic breakdown an organic horn-layered counterpart.”
