I watched this video on youtube about DJ Rankin and how he steals songs and calls them his own by speeding them up and adding his signature phrase, "DJ Rankin in the mix mother ****er." Makes me angry! But is this true? Dave McCullen's "Rave Heaven" is a real song that I have. I also have "Hardcore Vibes" song by Dune.

I also heard a rumor that Sean Apollo steals his tunes and beats. I love his song with DJ Peryton called "Invade" though. Does "Invade" have stolen music in it?
Phobz Yea it is true mate, he's a kid with no skills at all. He just plays other peoples songs that have had so much hard work put into them then takes all the credit and gets respect from kids because they don't have a clue. No biggy atleast we know this :)

I seriously doubt sean apollo steals tunes, he is skilled. I'm sure he's pretty respected in the hardcore world. Can't seem to get it clicking tho lol :)
Mortis Rankind does, Apollo doesn't.

Yup.

Don't know where you got that idea about Apollo!
swansea247 apollo stealing music? never.
Da Cunney Bugz dance is all about changing, remixin, adding and taking, making it your own, its just that idiot does it to the extreme and it's utter shite
silver Rankin steals

Apollo rocks
Underloop How you can compare the 2 I don't know! Sean produces his own beats, and has done right from the start. He can in no way be compared to Skankin!
NeXuS I remember Comet and Infinitron goin on a rant about Apollo in the past :P

For me, if they are now making a positive influence in the scene by respectable ways I dont care what they did in the past.

Apollo is busy spreadin the hardcore up in the Midwest!
Sean Apollo *Sigh*

Thanks for not listening to stupid crap guys, thats why I always loved hhc.com, people are smart enough to know whats right and wrong. haha.

Yes all of my stuff is mine, no I do not rip off anything, and no I do not smell like a wet dog...wait what?!

Well anyways, thanks for being awesome and sticking up guys! Massive respect!
Ionosphere Sean is a very talented guy who doesn't need to rip-off other people's work.


so yeh, if you hear anyone putting that sh*t about just tell them to F*ck Off!
Mad Max seans tunes are class from what i have heard
djDMS Big difference between just wholesale stealing of a tune and using ideas/influences from others.

Plenty do both - but it's the latter that's acceptable.

Well said.

At the end of the day someone who takes an idea someone and runs with it turning it into something of their own deserves praise. Even if the original idea was someone elses to beging with. One who blatently steals something and says it's their own is plain and simple a fraud.

Righteous9 Are you guys talkin' about production or spinning? Besides I've only heard Sean Apollo on a label... Who the hell is Rankin?

I wonder if he will ever try and redeem himself.
And I wonder if anyone well ever take him serious again :P
djDMS Well he did try, with the announcement of his so called 'original' album. But that seems to have disappeared without trace for whatever reason.

Thing is, with the amount of popularity he's gained from his dodgy deeds - why would he want to give it up?

The one thing that we hate him for is the one thing that so many kids love him for!
Mortis ^^ Thats very true. Rankin maybe a cock end of the highest oreder but loads of people know who he is, he gets bookings & plays at clubs (all be it to kids). So in his mind I guess it's a case of "fcuk you internet music geeks, if it aint broke why should I fix it?"

yeh but would anyone ever relese his stuff on vinyl coz if he is popular then before we know it we will have Rankin and Cammy mixing the Bonkers in year to come!
Underloop tbh, the only place the name Rankin has entered my vision has been here on these boards (and other net boards). I've never seen him on any events that I have been to or considered, or event any events that I've validated on the site.

"His" tunes have never been played by any of the DJs I have listened to, and in fact when I first heard his name I had to go out of my way to actually listen to one.

The likes of Rankin or Cammy will never become part of the "mainstream" hardcore scene, purely down to the fact that nobody likes them except the teeny boppers who have nil influence on the scene.

As for getting records released, I would imagine that the likes of Brisk, Dune and anybody who's tunes he uses (including the labels that released them) would be down on Rankin, whatever label releases it and the pressing plant as soon as they caught wind of it, so it just isn't going to happen. If it did then with any luck it may mean the end of Rankin's musical career.

It already has happened:

"A message was posted on DJ Rankin's website in early 2006 claiming the album had been delayed 'due to a change of studio and management' although it is widely believed the true reason was a dispute between DJ Rankin and the studio when his album was being created over unpaid studio fees which has apparently led to court proceedings.

Examples of the new material which he posted on his website still contained uncleared samples from other songs, such as the vocal part from 'Summer Jam' by 'Underdog Project'."

Also that huge under 18's event in Northern Ireland that used to book him aswell as the majority that did have stopped due to pressure from his copyright infringement.



Apollo does steal tracks!! He stole all my scaletrix

And he kicked my dog......
Dj Esi two things to ask one what is the sample that he usue in all his songs sounds to me like im insane im im im insane or sumink like dat i wanna know who they belong to the lyrics coz they dont belong to him and also spam his website :P

Dj Esi we can even send him hate mail :D

Audio X Good lord... people are still talking about this? Someone should just sticky the 30-page monstrosity from about three years ago and have an end to it.
Dj Esi i spammed his whole forum every page every topic lol would have taking him ages to remove lol was so funny :D
Meph751 I still don't understand why you guys don't like listening to two non lined up tracks layered on top of each other...
gabbe Hey i like ur songs too apollo!!

But who is rankin? Name a song he have "made" ...
gabbe oh im sorry, didnt watch the movie... sorry!
gabbe And how can people think 'his' songs are good? its really bad and sucks hell, he has no feeling... no rythm..

Edit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zr3366Uo-M0&mode=related&search=
It's good! I Like the song " Rankin is a SHHH Cammy is a SHHH Zitkus is a SHH..."
chrissy-moore I've heard about this wan. When rankin started he did what most djs usin acid pro now do, just putin a tune oan nd puttin some pellas in. But am not sure what he does now, though i've herd hez not bad live.
jenks ^^ He can't mix, so I doubt it. He chats more waffles than birdseye... he says most DJ's do what he does when they started, but he's full of shit... the little kids who listen to his crap believe it though, mainly because it doesn't seem any of them can distinguish between a DJ and a producer.

jack5724 Rankin Music is Fake Hardcore
Ken Masters DJ Rankin Is an ****ing disgrace to the scottish hardcore scene! Because of the amount of cheap ****s living in scotland they need to file share instead of buying good hardcore! They think they will get the same quality of tune but in reality they'll get a couple of rapping chipmunks over a hardcore beat! What the hell has happened! This goon has lead so many young ravers a stray & I personaly can't see a way back! I know we get Fantazia & Back to the future & pull in some big name acts but it's only the older the people who know all about the scene & how to stay true to it! but I don't know how long this can go on!

n/a lol at the hatred towards Ranking. Glad to see ppl hate the ****er as much as I do.

Lets face it, he's never going to get anywhere. There are too many ppl aware of what he's done.
tunnelrush I couldn't read past page 3 but i wanted to say im glad this got taken care of and i happen to have some sean apollo tunes. Keep producing and ill keep spinning it, Sean.
n/a That must be the ultimate insult to someone involved in hardcore music, calling them a rankin.

"You did a rankin"

"You Rankin you"

Id be offended :( lol

OH TO TRUE!!!!!!
DJ Hellfury i wouldnt talk about rankin any longer, he's bad / a c*nt, .... etc., kk, we all know it but you make propaganda for him, even when its a negative one. e.g i never heard from rankin til i saw a rankin topic in a forum.

its like manhunt 2, everyone talks about it before its even released; some ppl will only buy the game because its contended and well-known.

so stop give him more attention as he deserved
