Making Prodigy’s Smack My Bitch Up
by Winston "Stone" Ford
I’ve always said that the best samplers in the world were from the UK to puzzled stares and glances. But seriously, they UK killed the game when it came to sampling, remixing and production, especially during the early to mid 90s. Check out this video of how Liam from The Prodigy chopped up some iconic funk samples to create the iconic track “Smack My Bitch Up.”
The song samples such tracks as Kool and the Gang’s “Funky Man,” and Randy Metson, Rage Against The Machine (?) and of course The Ultramagnetic MC’s choice line. They way the samples are flipped are nothing short of next level. Check it.
