I agree with you a 100%. That sense of familiarity definitely helps sell a song but can be done in such a way that you capture the vibe without using
any other artists material. When you make a tune and use samples they must be cleared sometimes by three parties...Artist, Label and Publisher.
Depending on how prevalent the sample is or how popular the tune/Artist the sample came form, a percentage of the new project will be worked out. This
can be so high a lot of tunes never get a release or alternatively one of the above three parties refuses clearance.
Like you say rap music uses instrumental loops that can be from other tunes. Club Music uses sampled acapellas, breaks and noises. Fat Boy Slim and
The Avalanches are good successful samplers.
Sorry if this has went off topic, i,m enjoying rambling lol
