Hey man! Do you allow artist to sample your work?

Ott responded on 02/26/2015

I'd rather they didn't.

If somebody whose work I *really* admired contacted me and asked if they could use a sample of mine I'd probably consider it, but whenever I've heard examples of people sampling my work it's usually the intro to 'The Queen Of All Everything' with some shit beat under it and somebody 'rapping' over the top.

They then call it their own and possibly add the words [Feat. Ott] in brackets afterwards, even though what they ended up with is still 90% me.

I don't churn out a million songs a month and the few that I have made feel quite personal to me. I don't enjoy hearing them incorporated into other people's things.

But thanks for asking.
