House music maestro David Morales recently posted a vlog where he called out Kanye West for allegedly sampling a bassline on his new track I Like It, apparently without David’s permission. The bassline comes from a remix David Morales produced 25 years ago of a tune called What Is This Thing Called Love by Alexander O’Neal.

We figured you’d like to hear for yourself how the two compare, so we made a “mix and mash” of both songs plus we end it by speeding it up into a footwork banger that’s ready to be mixed into other contemporary house tunes. It’s all here in DJ Skill Sessions #27.

Do you agree that Kanye sampled David, or is it just coincidence? Let us know in the comments.
