Cosmic Gate’s “SO GET UP” True Indentity Of World’s Most Remixed Acapella Revealed (24 years later)

The EDM vocal masterpeice “So Get Up’s true orgins were recently revealed when this 1993 demo was rediscovered.

“SO GET UP” (1993 Demo) – Very rare 1993 demo version of the iconic electronic dance music vocal-poem “So Get Up”. This lyric was originally written and recorded by Ithaka (aka: Ithaka Darin Pappas) in January 1993 for a Rádio Comercial Program in Lisbon.

In March of 1993, this Demo version was recorded in Manchester, United Kingdom with producer Simon Bradshaw. And later, in February of 1994, Ithaka was invited to rerecord the poem for the B-Side of the first vinyl release of Underground Sound Of Lisbon on Kaos Records, Portugal. It was an almost instant national hit and soon released (along with an acapella version) internationally by Tribal (USA), a subsidiary of Stuart Copeland’s IRS Records in New York.

Interestingly, although the poem was written and vocalized by Ithaka a year before ever meeting Underground Sound Of Lisbon, no public vocal credit was included on those first releases.

The USL version and the new remixes by Junior Vazquez and Danny Tenaglia were quite popular themselves (selling at least 50,000 units) but because an acapella was included in these major distributions, literally hundreds of new mixes appeared in just a few years. Many producers simply changed the title (sometimes not) and put the entire vocal on their own instrumentals and called it their own.

The vocal acapella has also been released under the titles; “Get Up”, “Get Up Go Insane”, “So Get Up Atom Bride”, “The End Of the Earth”, “Next Life”, “See You In The Next Life”, “Intro”, “Headcharge” and “Hardventure”

The vocal itself has never had a sonic style specifically associated with it, it has kept changing it’s clothes and modernizing itself with the times.

The spoken-word acapella was originally read on-air on top of an instrumental version of a Naughty-By-Nature hip hop song, and this UK demo version is a mid-tempo electro-style track,. The vocal never had a sonic style specifically associated with it, it has kept changing it’s clothes and modernizing itself with the times.

The USL, Tenaglia and Junior Vazquez versions were progressive and tribal house. And since then have versions have appeared in almost every avenue of global electronic music such as; Trance, Dubstep, Drum & Bass, Big Beat, Trip Hop, Tech House, Electronic Art Rock etc.

Groups, producers and DJs that have released So Get Up inculude; Derek Marin, Peter Bailey, Pagano, Ben Gold, Eric Kupper, Cosmic Gate, Armin Van Buuren, Ricardo Diaz, Nixu Zsun, Oxia (France), Mert Yucel (Turkey), Igor Carmo (Portugal), Miss Kittin (Germay), Public Domain (Holland), Fat Boy Slim (Norman Cook) UK, Stretch & Verne (UK), Lexington Avenue, Damage People, Mirabeau, Ma-Beckerfield, FuturePlays (from Mexico), Dj Screw (Thailand), Djz Rom (Cambodia), Technoboy (Italy), Frankyeffe (Italy), Maik Ibane, Murt Yucel (Turkey), Mowree (Italy), Razat (Portugal), Tuneboy (Italy), K-Traxx (Italy), Dylan Hilsley (UK), DJ Vibe, Cee Cee Lee (Italy), Alex Di Stefano, etc etc etc.

As of 2016, with a staggering 1129 documented and released mixes, So Get Up is considered “The Most Remixed Vocal Acapella In Musical History” by the Guinness World Records.

Songwriter Ithaka Darin Pappas holds Guinness World Record For Most Remixed Vocal Acapella (song: “So Get Up”)

In 2016, with at least 1029 documented remixes to its credit
“So Get Up” a vocal spoken-word poem written and recorded by
Californian artist and songwriter Ithaka (Ithaka Darin Pappas)
was the Guinness World Record holder for
“Most Musical Remixes Created From Single Acapella”

Ithaka initially penned “So Get Up”,
(first titled, The End Of The Earth Is Upon Us)
in mid-1993 for a daily segment of a program he regularly hosted
on Rádio Comerical Lisbon called “Bairro Quatro”.
It was recited the first time live on-air
just an hour or two after it was written.

In 1994, also in Portugal, he re-recorded it with
a house music duo called Underground Sound Of Lisbon.
It was distributed nationally and later on Tribal Records (NY)
with an a capella version, incredulously without a vocal credit.

It is this a capella that has been remixed, robbed, sampled, remade
and covered to a degree unseen in the history of modern music.

In 2016, at last count there were 1029 released remixes
of the vocal “So Get Up” (often under different titles such as;
The End Of The Earth, Get Up Go Insane, Forget The Past, etc).
Guinness World Record now recognizes the SO Get Up vocal poem
as holding the title for “Most Musical Remixes Created From Single A Capella”
bypassing #2, Turkish pop-vocalist Evrim Tuzun, by more than 800 mixes.

Because the first release of So Get Up was not vocally credited,
this seemed to green-light all other remix users
of the acapella to not credit it as well (most producers
thought the vocal and lyrics were public domain, perhaps from an old film).

Although some mixes were legally licensed,
many EDM artists simply made their own electronic music tracks
and place Ithaka’s vocals and lyrics on top of it,
and called it entirely their own without requesting permission
or paying royalties.

Among the more known mixes of “So Get Up” there are versions by such all-star groups/producers as; Cosmic Gate (Germany), Danny Tenaglia (USA), Junior Vazquez (USA), DJ Vibe (Portugal), Mert Yücel (Turkey), Eric Kupper (USA), Fatboy Slim (UK) and Miss Kittin (France).

An incomplete list of DJ/producers who have remixed, reworked, covered or sampled the vocal poem “So Get Up” by Ithaka Darin Pappas since its first recording in 1993 include: Cosmic Gate (Germany), Danny Tenaglia (USA), Junior Vazquez (USA), DJ Vibe (Portugal), Mert Yücel (Turkey), Eric Kupper (USA), Fatboy Slim (UK) and Miss Kittin (France), Pelarli, Alex Di Stefano, Public Domain (Holland), Pagano (Italy), Mirabeau (UK), Damaged People (UK), Mowree (Italy), Stretch & Verne (UK), Sarasite, Orion’s Voice, Bob Ray & Van Dyuk, Igor Carmo, JJ Mullor, Dani Sber, Swing Kings, Atlantis IT, Ben Gold, Nixu Zsun (France), Ricardo Diaz, Peter Bailey (USA), DJ Kingsize, FuturePlays (Mexico), Derek Marin, Oxia (France), Domino, DJ Diego Mendonça, Mauro Ferno, Maik Ibane, Ce Ce Lee (Italy), Dj Kryst-Off Aka Zornéus (France), FRANKYEFFE (Italy), Branko & Club Atlas (members of Buraka Som Sistema), Alex Page (Portugal), Nell Silva (Portugal), Alex Farolfi, Fargetta, GianLuca Mens, The Ventura 87, Dimas Carbajo, Christo Z (Greece), Ronni King,Terry Lee Brown JR., DJ Theo V (Greece), Djz Rom (Cambodia), DJ Beg, Lexicon Avenue, DJ Screw (Thailand) etc etc.

Corpocracy: The Outsourcing of America (Produced By: Clint Santiago Dahl)
In 2005, Dahl produced “Corpocracy: The Outsourcing of America”, a controversial politically-oriented documentary featuring Ron Paul and directed by Clyde Gentry.
The United States of America is the engine of Democracy and the engine of growth for the rest of the world. But its now losing steam as the country becomes more debt ridden, allowing the puppet masters of globalization to corrode the very foundations that made this country the world leader.

CORPOCRACY examines the history and effects of globalization on the middle class and how a change in public policy may already be too late. Told from the point of view of the policy makers on Capitol Hill, the film looks at different aspects of globalization-from NAFTA to immigration to the falling dollar-and how the recession we are facing today could be far more dangerous for the people of tomorrow.

There’s a war going on between you, the consumer, and Big Food. Salt and processed sugar are in everything, and more addictive than cocaine and heroin. Yeah, that’s right, Schedule One narcotics; yet they’re completely legal. Insane, right?

The average American ingests almost 3,900 milligrams of salt daily; that’s over twice the FDA recommended intake, and around 156 pounds of sugar per year. Take a moment and think about that. If you suffer from obesity, any type of sodium or sugar related health condition, high blood pressure, Ménière’s disease (dizzy spells), or are just sick and tired of being sick and tired, you came to the right place.

You have to get your mental right

Diets Are Nonsense. Why? Because they don’t work. The word diet automatically sets you up for failure. It’s not your fault. It’s what we’ve all been taught since childhood, and the diet industry is making billions off your misery. Instead, you have to readjust your thinking to a life style change. Clean, healthy, life sustaining, organic, salt and processed sugar free power food.

We encourage you to pursue our organic, NO SALT OR PROCESSED SUGAR recipes, and download as many as you like. You can submit your own, even videos, and once we’ve done a live test and it’s approved, we’ll upload it. Happy eating and feeling better every day!

Controversial N.W.A. Manager, JERRY HELLER, Dies (September 2nd , 2016) At Age 75 in California.

Many things can be said about the controversial music manager Jerry Heller who launched Eazy E and NWA on a meteoric rise to the top of the hip hop world, but the fact remains…The man was an absolute marketing genius and a real Business All Star.

_______________________________________________

Jerry Heller, who served as N.W.A.’s original manager, died of a heart attack on Friday, September 2, at Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks, California. He was 75.Heller was involved in a car accident on Friday morning and was taken to the hospital with serious injuries shortly before his death.
Heller was best known for kicking off N.W.A.’s highly successful career in the ’80s after teaming up with band member Eazy-E to launch Ruthless Records. The record label also launched the careers of several R&B and hip-hop stars such as J. J. Fad, Michel’le and the D.O.C.

Heller had a contentious relationship with N.W.A. member Ice Cube, who left the group in 1989 over a royalty dispute. Ice Cube, now 47, later released a diss track against his former manager titled “No Vaseline,” on which he rapped, “N.W.A. ain’t s–t without Ice Cube!” (Dr. Dre also left the group in 1991, citing similar monetary issues.)
