Swedish house mafia just released their new single “Greyhound” while teaming up with Absolut vodka in the process. Just listened to it for the first time yesterday. My first thoughts were: a) this is kinda mediocre and b) it sounds like the best section is just a chord progression rip of Hans Zimmer’s “Time” better known as one of the main songs from “Inception.”
Here’s Hans Zimmer’s “Time”
Now here’s Swedish House Mafia - “Greyhouse” (sorry in advance if you have to sit through that fucking Absolut commercial of the exact video you’re about to watch…)
Skip to 2:30 mark for section I’m talking about.
It’s not really a secret that SHM seems to half-ass alot of things whether it’s copy-pasting whole loops from sample libraries, or just playing pre-recorded sets “in order to sync up with fireworks”. I’d love to talk more about it, since there are plenty of angles one can take on their multiple controversies, but real work beckons :/
p.s. if you want to hear an actual remix of the original Hans Zimmer without the SHM bullshit and Absolut Vodka product placement, check this out:
