Another question about sampling rights


New member
Hey guys

Can you help me to finally understand how DJ's especially in house music can uses samples from old records. clean the samples ? how? Do not clean it but don't make money with it ?

Look at this
and this

This guy just release a remix of the track with another name. Like if it he's own track. It's legal ? and a lot of dj do the same.

I'm jealous, no strike from Spotify and soundcloud. Credit the original artist on the credits only ?

Please tell me

On a very basic level, they get permission (a license) to use the sample and split the profits with the owner of the publisher of the original sample (music). At least that's my understanding. Maybe someone here can step in and expand on this.
