    I was the one that posted that topic. Here's the link to it:


    The mp3 that I posted on the forum was deleted at a later point because of their new policies, but I went on my old computer and reuploaded it for this discussion:


    You can hear the "Uh" and "Paah" samples separated and compared with the original song. The Uh sample is available from AoN member JJ Jeczalik's "Art of Sampling" sample library. JJ was also the Fairlight programmer for Absolute. I think Gary Langan from AoN worked on the song as well.

    I think i saw the forum you're talking about, but i did not hear the proof.
    If you find the site with the sounds, let me know.

    I moderated this and I did some research before I accepted it. I can't remember where off the top of my head but I found a site where they manipulated the sample to show it was true. I think it was an Art of Noise fanpage. I remember reading there that someone from Art of Noise had something to do with the Scritti Politti song as well.

    I'm not sure about this one.
    Wrong timing, not sample or interpolation.
