Very heavily in fact, he's the only credited writer/composer/remixed

(I've got the single)

That's believable to me, it sounds as bad as the rest of his work ;)

How about Nelly Furtado's Do It? That has C64 in it.

From what ive listened to those are all really quite cool. But its original stuff isnt it? I have decided i really want to stay away from remixes. I think there's another guy doing a funkier set. So I can just be as geeky as I want.

Sorry i havent replied to any posts today but ive been working and then I saw Monkey Journey to the West... thing tonight.

Im going through all the suggestions now ... having a great time!

The soundtrack from X2(playstation) is rather good.

"Meet again" from Guilty Gear X2 is absolutely gobsmacking...

ummm..."Wondering Ghosts" or "The Tragic Prince" from Castlevania:SOTN maybe?

Level 1 from Dragon Spirit is a really catchy tune. :D

Boss music from Streets of Rage #1?

Final boss music from Twinkle Tale(Megadrive).

Tunes from the Wipeout series, a couple of tunes on Jaguar XJ220 Amiga version. Also check out "Top Banana" on the Amiga. Wasn't a great game, but it had some decent rave tracks.

Timbaland's response?
"It makes me laugh. The part I don't understand, the dude is trying to act like I went to his house and took it from his computer. I don't know him from a can of paint. I'm 15 years deep. That's how you attack a king? You attack moi? Come on, man. You got to come correct. You the laughing stock. People are like, 'You can't be serious.' "
And desite him being a professional producer with a lot of experience, who knows that samples need clearance... apparently claiming an entire tune as your own work is called 'sampling' nowadays, which is not stealing because "everybody samples from everybody every day".

What a lovely chap.
