We're approaching the present (2002)...
he's done his egopromo well though, as he's listed right with people like goto80 and nullsleep on http://solipsisticnation.com/?p=55. i sent the guy running that show a mail about the deal already.

woops. http://theguide.latimes.com/blogs/soundboard/2008/02/05/laromlab-plays-tonight-a t-motion-lab/ - anyone up for telling the la times what's going on? i guess a little more proof than a pouet thread full of stuff they dont understand might be useful here.

before a lynchmob is whipped up ,may i suggest the simple solution of having him deal with all the technical stuff? Dont turn it into another internet public beating, it is should be fairly abvious that this is another thing than with timbalame. in legal principle it is not, but in the real world there is a whole lot of difference. I suggest to have him face the humiliation created by having to inform ALL involved parties of his foul play himself! And figure out a way to follow up on the progress.

Timbalame can take a big fat shit on all his critics, youtube etc.. who can touch the man? nobody thats who, because he has so much money that it doesnt matter. My guess that the current ripper still have to go to work for a living, so his personal reputation is of a much greater value than timbalames for his own personal survival. Yes it is truely foul play but please appease gentlemen.

hmm. you have a good point there.

the guy from the "solipsisticnation" podcast replied to me and asked if i wanted to be interviewed about it. i answered that maybe it's better if he directly interviews dubmood or crazy q, for instance (so if any of you ripped musicians read this, feel free to contact the podcast guy, his contact is on the site).

however, reading iblis' point i suggested that it'd be better even if he could just interview laromlab himself about it, if laromlab would take the initiative for that like iblis suggests. he'd want to put it on the podcast in late april, so there's no rush for this one.

And I take it to the future!
skrebbel which is altso a solution where the guy gets a chance to explain himself. But as the people actually involved has not returned yet, perhaps peacefull solutions are being worked out allready.

This is the first I've heard of this and to be honest, I don't know what to think. I believe sampling is a creative force in culture that goes back ages, whether it's Dvorak incorporating folk music into his scores or surrealists creating montages or hip hop artists sampling and recontextualizing music to make their own songs. Nearly all art canabalizes preexisting art to make new art and to prevent that is to prevent art. As Chuck D from Public Enemy once said, "You can't copyright a beat."

I haven't heard the music that you say Laromlab has stolen from artists such as Crazy-C, Dma-c and others so I don't feel I can safely form an opinion on this matter. Perhaps if you could provide links to the music in question so I can actually make a comparison and see (or hear, in this case) if what you say is true.

By the way, I attempted and failed to register with your forum. I would appreciate if you could pass this email on to the forum.

I am currently working on a show that will go out the end of April that will cover various topics such as the Nerdcore Rising documentary, DIY culture and an interview with the program manger of KYOURadio in San Francisco. If anyone from your forum or the artists in question would like to express their opinions on this matter, I welcome their participation in the show. We could even arrange to play some of their music that they say has been stolen to prove or disprove their point.

I can be reached at solipsisticnation@gmail.com

On a lighter note, I hope you enjoy the show.


in case anyone cares, heres the invitation to be on this podcast. i can do it but i guess it's better if one of the involved musicians get on there instead. it appears to be a pretty popular one, at least he gets to talk with decent artists for interviews (ala amon tobin in a recent episode).

haha so its sampling now? oh la la

anyway here is the latest mail from his label:

Laromlab/Brandon Harrod has admitted fault, we are deeply sorry and
have asked our digital vendors to halt production and distribution. It
will take a week for it to be taken out of emusic, rhapsody, napster
and itunes. I don't think the itunes links were live, nor were albums
sold in that manner. I have personally taken down purchase links on
Myspace, facebook, mushpotrecords.com and in the process of removing
from Fanatic's site.

As for physical albums, I need to assess inventory and to be
honest--we didn't sell many. We were just getting started with all of
this and are currently in debt from cd production and public relations

I actually need your help to gather emails of all the original artists
involved so that we can give due credit and correct any blog/podcast
postings that may have posted tracks. We are planning to issue an
official statement to the US press and radio as soon as we figure out
who really wrote which songs.

I need contact emails, band names and real names.

Thank you for your patience and understanding today, it was a lot to
handle all by myself.

So. They planned a huge campaign, selling this music everywhere, lives etc etc. How the fucking hell would he think that nobody would notice, I dont get it. No wounder kentucky avg IQ is below Forest Gumps.

i like it how you misspelled basically everything in the sentence about iq.

anyhow, yeah apparently the podcast guy doesn't completely get the difference, but either way he's offering you a chance to explain it himself. but indeed, pretty amazing that he seriously believed he could pull this off. who found it, btw? earx?

clean reaction from the label though, good people there.

Dubmood, for the attention ofcourse. Its all really sad. You have to be a special kind of lonely to try and catch just a glimpse of popularity by nicking other peoples tunes and release them on 4 seperate albums. had he just Dj'ed the same tracks, no problem, and in reality same effect for the punters, its not like he is playing the lead on a guitar see.

i can do it but i guess it's better if one of the involved musicians get on there instead

I think it would be worlds of more interresting to hear from the culprit himself. wtf were he thinking? as dubmood said how on earth did he work out that nobody would ever notice it, it simply boggles the mind.

TREND REPORT: Laromlab (Part 2)

Expect this "chiptune maestro" to be on magazine covers soon. He's Laromlab, the new Atari dance music prodigy from Kentucky. In my second part of the interview with Laromlab I learned about his status with L.A. tastemakers, what he's listening to, and his plans for the future now that his latest tour, "Consoles Afire," is over.

Laromlab—your name’s all over YouTube with DJ AM spinning your remix of Daft Punk’s "Around the World." What’s your relationship with Los Angeles DJs and the city itself?
I have had quite a great response from L.A. and California in general. The first website that posted my Daft Punk remixes (missingtoof.com) is based in California and very deep rooted in the dance music scene there! On tour some of my favorite shows were in Cali and we had a lot of fun there! Some of my favorite DJs are from that area: DJ Jefrodisiac, Sleazemore, DJ AM (of course)...just to name a few!

The trend for emerging music talent seems to be to score with industries like television and advertising. If you could score a licensing deal with a TV show or ad campaign, what would they be?
We have already had several licensing deals spring up. I am not too terribly interested in that side of music but when the right things come around I am very flattered that company’s want to use my music. Two recent companies that approached us were a video game company that wanted to use my music for the opening credits of their game and a magazine that is currently working on an animated series of robot cartoons which will include several of my songs!

Atari Astrounaut:
Laromlab, also known as Brandon Harris,
is leading us into electronica heaven.

Who are your musical obsessions? And, who’s on your playlist?
I have been on a huge space disco kick lately! Probably influenced through Daft Punk but I have been very set on finding a lot of lost tracks from the 70s and 80s disco eras to throw in some DJ sets and stuff! Other stuff I have been listening to: Jay-Z, Ratatat, and Mixel Pixel.

You released your self-titled record in February. You’re finishing touring the U.S. You’ve got fans all over the world—including, I hear, Justice’s Gaspard Auge. What’s next for Laromlab?
I am actually going to be laying low for a while and resting while promoting the record at the same time. The record hits radio just as soon as everyone gets back from SXSW and I am looking forward to see how it does on college radio! I have just finished a 7-week tour so I am ready to relax for a lite while. I will be getting married in 2 weeks and in April I am heading to Europe for a vacation. After that I look forward to just relaxing but I always have some underground plans up my sleeve!

Thanks, Laromlab, for answering all of my questions!

skrebbel: it was found by CrazyQ. it was one of CrazyQ's songs that was first on laromlab's site's play list.

iblis: you are right, we can't lynch this guy. he's just a poor wanker thinking he could make it big by cheating. i think the matter is as good as resolved anyway, seeing the correspondence from the label (Mushpot records).

skrebbel: that radio show thing sounds interesting. i don't agree with the host: copying a track 1:1 and putting your name on it, sometimes not even changing the trackname.. that's hardly comparable to sampling a james brown beat and then rapping and scratching over it. the best comparison would be changing the signature on somebody else's painting. i'd say, provide him with the mp3's and let him judge for himself ;)

indeed, which is why someone (either laromlab or one of the nicked guys) should get on that show to explain the difference. i doubt laromlab would be "stealin, thas like breakin into ya house and takin ya protools" about it, really. but then he probably doesn't dare getting on the show.

Laromlab : the fake chipmusician from Kentucky.. Pfff that's a shit with legs.

Dubmood & CrazyQ are the real artists, laromlab is just a copycat...
Watching some youtubevideos from his "live"concerts where ugly americans dance to a song I made when I was 16. funny... makes me wanna puke

Guys, this is surreal. You're supposed to keep it real. You're not doing that. Improve.
