Creep might not be a well-known outfit, but the production duo from Brooklyn has received love from a number of publications over the last three years for their broad electronic-leaning productions. From what Lauren Flax (one-half of Creep) is saying on Facebook, it looks like Cool & Dre knew of the duo, and might have jacked their debut single for a DJ Khaled song:

Here’s the original “Days” by Creep, in all of its space-y beauty, followed by DJ Khaled’s Cool & Dre-produced “Murcielago (Doors Go Up),” which is taken from his recently-released Suffering From Success. “Murcielago (Doors Go Up)” does bear resemblance to “Days,” although sped-up and with more drums added to it. You decide.

    to me it sounds like they took the main synth riff, but remade it. the synth sound is really different (and not as good!), its also missing the other synth sounds, and the beats are completely different! did they use it as inspiration? obviously. did they rip it off? hmmm. thin line… at the end of the day its ust giving the creep track more attention, so …! prob worth more than persuing it as a legal case

      meaning, the synth sound in the khaled song is def not as good/lower quality!!
