Oh no Another Plagiarism

The witch-hunt for chipmusic plagiarizers has certainly cooled off, which is perhaps a good thing. But can someone identify the songs that HtheB has released in his album -=HtheB=-? I think they’re still at Spotify and iTunes though I’m blind at those sites.

Orbiter first posted about it in the the mega-thread at pouet in November last year and not much has happened since. The chip-styled songs of HtheB are: Commodore 64, Final Boss, Dance to the Rhythm, ROFL song, Victorious, and Happy Hardcore. I would not be surprised if the other songs are made by demosceners aswell though.

If you have a minute to spare, have a listen and help out. With Exotica’s Modland Search you can search various chip-formats, including the instrument-texts of e.g. mod/xm. Let’s start detecting, detectives! So far, with help from Dubmood and Eebliss here and comments from Ant1 & Rez & Clémence & Strobe we have the following songs. BONUS: Some of the album cover art is copy-pasted from here (as found by Clémence Saussez).

1. Dream Egg (Dance Mix) by Haroon Piracha mp3
2. The Edge by Eiffel 65 youtube
3. Unreeeal Superhero 3.xm by Rez & Kenët
4.
5. mod.Intro.DSX.4 by DSX
6. from the game osu, unknown author youtube
7. mod.Back 2 the Roots by Dalezy
8.
9. mod.Disco Vering by Joule
10.
11. mod.Cloze Doze by Beathawk
12. mod.Brillsmurf by Maniac
13.
14. Perhaps by Achim89 or Firestorm? see video here

UPDATE: For more HtheB action read this post.

    Booo. What a douche.

  5. bittin Says:

    #spotify on irc.freenode.net has Spotify workers on it so if you spam that channel, they might remove it from there :)

  6. ant1 Says:

    Track 6?

    I don’t know any more info (who’s it by, etc), sorry (have just youtube-searched for mario techno remix and found it in about 3 minutes).

    Seems to be from a game called Osu! – http://osu.ppy.sh/s/628 – but the artist there is just credited as Nintendo, not helpful!

  7. Fuck You Says:

    “witch-hunt”

    Fuck you, asshole.

  8. ant1 Says:

    Track 1 is Dream Egg (Dance Mix) by Haroon Piracha

    http://www.rpgamer.com/games/xeno/xg/sounds/mp3/DreamEggDanceMix(HaroonPiracha).mp3

    Hotlinking is forbidden so go to rpgamer.com/games/xeno/xg first and then copy the rest in your url bar? :)

  9. ant1 Says:

    Ok maybe hotlinking works? Whatever… :)

  10. Saga Says:

    Isn’t the second track even a commercial track? It sounds extremely familiar to me, but not from the scene.

  11. julz Says:

    Yes, the second track is commercial and not from the scene.
    I’m trying to remember the name…

  12. ant1 Says:

  15. Clémence Says:

    Track 2: Eiffel 65 – The Edge :)

    • Saga Says:

      Ahaha, that’s it indeed! Someone should tell Eiffel 65 (or their record label) about this. I bet he would be in INSTANT and BIG trouble then!

  16. jikoo Says:

    I wrote to iTunes Store/Apple.com to delete this album on iTunes Store.

  17. jikoo Says:

    Nice Clemence ! That is it !
