Shenmue. A love letter (Remix album)

Postby Chakan » Thu Feb 25, 2016 10:33 pm

Hey guys, just wanted to spread the word of "Shenmue. A love letter"

It's a recently released remix album consisting of 66 tracks and clocking over 3 hours. It's pretty decent.

You can read a bit more on it at my site and listed to samples from every track.

This "Patrem" is trying make money off of remixes he didn't make. I suggest you not promote this on your website.

Tracks 51 and 64 are remixes originally made by LanDC here at the dojo. Track 53 was made by Rukunetsu on Youtube.

Wow, I didn't realise that he just blatantly stole some tracks that other people had made, that's really poor. I thought it was bad enough he was charging for this music, when 90% of the original songs are still intact, i'm not 100% on the legality of remixes like this, as I see alot of cover songs and remixes of songs that i'm sure they didn't get consent for. If they were just free remixes for the Shenmue fanbase to enjoy or 100% of the money was going to the Shenmue 3 Paypal then that would make it better, but the worst of it is to steal other peoples work and then charge money for those songs.

This is rather unfortunate news to read.

I will be taking my article down and writing another one on the theft tomorrow.

Thanks for letting me know.

By the way, do we have confirmation from LanDC that these tracks are not being used with permission? It's possible some sort of agreement was made for their use.

I don't want to make accusations.

Just chatting with Ziming and he says that LanDC didn't know about this album until now, so I assume that means that he hadn't given his consent on his songs.

Hell no I didn't give him permission.

If I didn't think trying to profit off Sega's properties was the dumbest idea ever, I'd be selling these myself. I notice he's doing the same thing for Kingdom Hearts. This guy needs to be put in his place.

By the way, the so-called remixes on this album make me laugh. They are mainly just the original track, sped up or slowed down with a hip-hop beat over it. I'm one of the, what, 3 people who have made true, quality Shenmue mixes. One of which I just released and he didn't get his grubby hands on. Fuck this guy.

That sucks LanDC.

Even worse, track 49 is Reuben Kee! The much loved piano player on youtube who sadly passed away. This Patrem guy blatantly stole his piece and is trying to benefit from it.

Very distasteful :(

Anyone know who to email / target about this guy? Would Sega be at all bothered?

Been doing a bit of digging and just finding more and more youtube videos that he's obviously just ripped the music from.

Very upsetting.

Any money he's already made off this should go straight to the slacker backer.

Tom over at The Dreamcast Junkyard has put up a new article with our findings.

http://www.thedreamcastjunkyard.co.uk/2 ... n.html?m=1

Hopefully this will get the word out a little bit for anyone who was considering buying the album.

Glad Tom was able to make a post earlier to start getting the word out. I've finally got my own up.

Great article Chakan :)! I messaged Dan Sheridan, the Sega Europe Community Manager, who thanked me for the heads up and said he would look into it.
