Metal bashing
The Economist - about 4 years
TWO seconds of metallic music may seem a rather trivial basis for spending 12 years battling through the German courts. But that is what lawyers for Kraftwerk (pictured), an electropop band, and Moses Pelham and Martin Haas, two composers, have been doing.  In 1977, Kraftwerk produced a track called “Metall auf Metall” which features a continuous percussive phrase. Twenty years later Pelham & Haas released “Nur Mir”, featuring a rapper called Sabrina Setlur, which samples the same phrase. Kraftwerk claimed this was an infringement of recording rights. In 2004, the Hamburg lower court agreed, forbidding further distribution of “Nur Mir”. Two years later, the Hamburg higher court reversed that decision but allowed an appeal to the Supreme Court, which after two more years referred it back to Hamburg. The question at the heart of the case is how far sampling the work of other artists—a mainstay of modern hip-hop and techno—is permissible when creating new music. The answe ...

    FORTIES
  • 2016
    Age 42
    In May 2016, veteran band Kraftwerk finally lost a 19-year copyright infringement legal suit against Setlur, for her use of a sample from their 1977 album "Metall auf Metall" in her 1997 song "Nur mir".

  • THIRTIES
  • 2007
    Age 33
    Returning from yet another musical hiatus, Setlur's fifth studio album Rot was released on August 24, 2007.
    More Details Hide Details The first single of the critically acclaimed album "Lauta" (which contains a sample of "25 Years" by The Catch) became a modest hit in Germany. After the poor chart performance of the second single I Think I Like It (and even of the album itself) all promotion was stopped, including the announced tour being cancelled.
  • 2005
    Age 31
    In early 2005 released an best of compilation, titled 10 Jahre Sabrina Setlur.
    More Details Hide Details The compilation album features all of her singles (by then fifteen) as well as the album tracks "Ich bin raus" (taken from S ist soweit) and "Ohne Worte" (from Aus der Sicht und mit den Worten von) but did not include new material. The song "Mein Herz", originally released on Sabs, was used as single to promote the album.

  • 2004
    Age 30
    Following several weeks of promotional appearances, Setlur entered the competition on March 19, 2004 with the album's second single, and although considered as a favourite by the media, Setlur failed to place within the top 5, eventually falling against singer Max Mutzke and his song "Can't Wait Until Tonight."

  • 2000
    Age 26
    Though its singles couldn't link to previous accomplishments, the album's sales earned Setlur her third ECHO for "Best Female Artist" in 2000.
    More Details Hide Details A few months later Sabrina constantly hit the headlines when paparazzi revealed her relationship to former tennis star Boris Becker. The couple separated shortly afterwards, but due to conflicting rumours about anorexia Setlur's name maintained popular in magazines and papers. "I was suddenly in the newspaper, not because of my job, only because we were together", said Setlur in an interview with online magazine Spiegel Online. "Suddenly they wrote stuff about me, which hasn't something to do with my job." Setlur channeled much of her heavily media-discussed experiences into the production of her fourth studio album Sabs. Released in November 2003, the CD received a mixed reception from most professional music critics, with Laut calling it "a chavvy and antiquated but good rap album" and CDStarts declaring it a "insignificant but practiced comeback." Promoted by Setlur's engagement as a judge on the third installment of the German reality television series Popstars - Das Duell (which created both the male quartet Overground and the girl group Preluders), the album spawned four moderately successful singles, including "Liebe", a collaboration with Glashaus and labelmate Franziska.
  • 1999

  • 1997

    Her debut was in 1995 under the guidance of 3p Records executive and mentor Moses Pelham, producer of her breakthrough single "Ja Klar."
    More Details Hide Details Following the drop of her pseudonym and a number-one single, "Du Liebst Mich Nicht," in 1997, a series of hit records established her position as Germany's "best known and highest-selling female rap act" to date. Setlur is the only artist to date to have ever won three ECHO Awards for "Best National Female Artist." According to several sources, she has sold more than two million albums and singles domestically. Setlur is the elder of two sisters born to Krishnan Setlur, a Kannadiga banker, and his wife Theresa, a Malayali nurse, in Frankfurt am Main, Hesse. She and her four-years-younger sister Yvonne were primarily raised in Bad Soden am Taunus, where Setlur became acquainted with future Rödelheim Hartreim Projekt members Thomas Hofmann and Moses Pelham in her high school years.

    After a spontaneous performance of Dr. Dre's "Nuthin' But a "G" Thang" in 1993 Hofmann and Pelham asked her to contribute a verse to the early Rödelheim Hartreim Projekt track "Wenn Es Nicht Hart Ist."
    More Details Hide Details As she had never rapped before, Setlur reportedly hesitated; but soon accepted their invitation into the recording studio. Impressed by her talent, Pelham offered her a record contract with Pelham Power Productions, and as a result Setlur quit studying business administration and instead signed a deal with 3p Records.
