Completely pointless version of a true house classic. Just get Robert Armani's 'Ambulance' and listen to the real deal and not some watered down version.

Being a fan of Chicago hard house, it struck me as extremely odd that a French "producer" would create a song that sounded exactly the same as Robert Armani's "Ambulance" (released in 1991). It is one thing to sample, but another thing to simply remaster an artist's work and then claim it as your own. Robert Armani should be getting royalties, not Antoine Clamaran. Although Clamaran does cite "Ambulance," the citation is vague about just how much of Armani's song was actually used. "Take Off" sounds almost exactly like "Ambulance." I can't find it ethical for Clamaran to hold himself out as the predominant producer of this work. Listeners who are not familiar with Armani's work will not read the fine print nor understand Clamaran's excessive use of Armani's "Ambulance." In summary, this record deserves a 1/5, not so much for the merits of the music, but because it is so clearly mislabeled. Clamaran should have titled the song "Rip Off" instead.

When artists from Detroit and Chicago talk about second rate European producers stealing their music, it's phonies like Clamaran they are referring to.
