Tired of the whole lawsuit BS. "Mommy, mommy, I dropped my candy and somebody took it. Bad bad! Go beat them and tell them now I want the whole candy store!"

One thing is if a huge band steals the whole melody from another contemporary band to turn it into a hit.
A completely different thing is a techno act only known by people in the scene decorating part of a track by adding a guitar sequence from a long forgotten d-tier journeyman act that made completely different music. I would be flattered instead of whining like a crybaby. They would help me sell my old crap again, if anything!

1986, "world famous band" my frigid danish arse. $500K "compensatory damages". Dream on.

LES Djinns is an arrangement of the original track called Turkish ShowBiz written by Atilla Engin and released in an album called MARMARIS LOVE in 1986 in Denmark. Djuma SoundSystem sampled/illegally "borrowed" the guitar intro which was the entire melody (19 seconds) and they named it to LES Djinns. And they further registered the track on their own names at KODA Denmark.
The German label Get Physical Music which released and subcontracted LES Djinns to another 66 labels, froze all payable royalties since 2008 and awaiting the outcome of the litigation in Denmark.
Yes, this matter's being litigated in Danish courts and there is a $500.000 Dollars lawsuit for punitive and compensatory damages. It is a disgraceful act "borrowing" someone else's work and benefiting.
Here is the link to biggest Danish paper POLITIKEN's article about the lawsuit.

When Trentemøller's remix of "Djuma Soundsystem - Les Djinns" was picked up by the label "Get Physical Music", it was a direct hit.

But you must know, this remix was not made in the year 2006, but in 2003. It existed already 3 years. Pressed by Capitol Records.

Thanks to the good contribution of Get Physical it was also a great start for Trentemøller's career.

Overall, the remix is very great. And is a must-have.

Well, Anders Trentemøller has done it again. He has taken a track with some amazing elements and created a breathtaking dancefloor journey complete with gorgeous triangle hits, spanish guitar, moody synths, and oh yeah, the sickest beats in any studio. B-side remixes are good too, but they sound downright common next to the A-side. Trentemøller ... he could remix anything into a smasher, even without such well-played elements to work with. Spot on. Pick this one up.

Super cool breakbeat treatment by Anders Trentemøller. Atmospheric and emotive in some respects, this remix is somewhat a deviation from his earlier deep house affair, but nonetheless should catch attention from breakbeat/nu breaks/progressive breaks fans, artists and DJs alike. This is the only track in the CD that gets the most credit from me. Impressive!
