I think Tipsy is GREAT! But I just listened to "space Golf" again just to be sure, and its all made from snippets of other peoples stuff. ...

Just to be clear about this, as mentioned earlier:

"...due to complications on getting permission for the samples, Tipsy went into the studio and recreated the sounds of all the samples needed."

If you look at the liner notes on the Tipsy cd "Uh-Oh", the list of musicians utilyzed in the studio is rather long. They did not sample other peoples recordings. They recreated the snippets themselves along with the musicians they brought into the studio. Additional instrumentation is added on top of this. This is hardly a "DJ" band. Nor are they Exotica. More like Post Lounge.

Not to further open up this can of worms, but what exactly were these musicians "re-creating" on this CD ? Was it snippets of other people's music or did they compose the stuff themselves ?

Just wondering.

Both! Instead of pulling samples from vinyl (or cd reissues) they recreated the snippets in the studio with actual instruments. These snippets were then used as or within a framework involving the recording of more live instruments performing stuff they composed. It's a hybrid.
