Holy crap, the video itself is impressive but it really shows how damn good Howlett was at sampling in his prime, the fact that "Bulls on Parade" was sampled kinda blows my mind.

wow.. that was amazing. At one point I was trying to get the smack my bitch up sample to sound proper and I couldnt do it. Now that I see this I might be able to, since I use ableton :D

And this is why I just have to chuckle when people frown on heavy sampling as being "uncreative"

Yeah really. This is mind blowing to me. While this is not exactly identical (not talkin about the arrangement because it's obvious to anyone who's heard "Smack My Bitch Up" I'm talkin about technical) it's so close that the average consumer wouldn't be able to tell the difference I didn't think it was possible to recreate another one's piece of work like this. I guess if you're recreating someones sampled work, then there's more of a possibility.

WOW. Throughout the video, I was thinking "Oh, this is pretty cool," but when they got to "Bulls on Parade", that blew me away. Friggin' amazing. Also, the lead synth was pretty damn close all things considered (though not perfect.) Simply incredible!!!

Crazy stuff. Can't believe how close he got it sounding. I feel tempted to try this out myself now!

Wow, no idea this track was 90% resampled stuff. Very impressive.
