The Drugs Work

Some soundalikes skirt very grey areas and it’s vital to seek expert advice from a musicologist to ensure you’re not storing up any future issues for the production. I first met Peter Oxendale in 2010 and he regularly appears as an expert witness in cases of musical plagiarism. He gave me specific advice on this track in terms of key, rhythm and melody and I utilise his guidance on any potentially contentious soundalike.
