Define new.

So if I take Bb's cheesy solos and record them - load it into my computer.
PRocess it so that the lenght of the piece is 3 times what it was, I make
the chessy solo sound very distorted and I layer multiple processed
versions of the material into a larger mix. Then I add a 909 kick drum loop
and and sample an Egyptian classical singer and throw it on top.

IS this innovative? Is it new? ALl these things have existed already - I am
just altering them and combining them in a new way. Let;s say it is
innovative, how would we jusdge if it was worth listening to? What about
the singer or BB - do they feel robbed because i appropriated some of their
stuff and formed into my own thing?
