Thoughts by Crystal Castles is essentially a rejigging of Empathy (a Crystal Castles song) by Audiodax, a relatively small production duo.

The bad news is the sample is essentially four lifted bars from Empathy slowed down with very little added. The good news is the rap on top of the beat doesn’t hold anything back. It takes a track meant for hipsters (sorry New York Times, I’ve got to use that word), gives it some weight and reinvents it as a hip hop track.

Sampling a relatively well-known band is a great way to get attention and I look forward to hearing some more original Audiodax, where they can shine on their own.
