    How did Daft Punk hide their samples so well?

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    I was listening to a select few songs by Daft Punk, sample heavy ones (e.g High Fidelity, High Life) and I thought, how did they do this? Think of the Burnin' sample that someone found not too long ago, that song is almost 20 years old! Did they not credit any of their samples? If so, did they just do it privately? So they don't give away the sample? I'm confused, this doesn't happen to any other musicians, for example, every sample was found from Yeezus like right away.

    They dont credit people, so they dont have to pay a bunch of money to the original sample creator. In some ways its bad, but in others it really isnt.

    I read in several interviews that they re-sample their samples. Like, they take a sample, pitch it and whatever they do with it, save as, and then again re-pitch and whatever. I think that's why they are so hard to identify.

    Me too please, most of the samples have been blatant, and not hidden in a very crazy-manner, just hard to find, due to the rarity/unpopular vinyls.

    like i said in another thread about samples, two words:

    papa. bang.

    when your dad is an established producer, you have an in in the industry. a number of their uncredited samples have ties to papa bang's production work one way or another, iirc.

    i'm sure there have also been private agreements such as that with Slum Village.

    Oh boy, I don't remember which specific magazines/interviews, sorry

    EDIT
    I wasn't meaning to say that they literally pitched and saved as, I was just guessing. But I do remember that they said "We even re-sampled the original sample", something in that way.

    Though probably not the primary method; another little thing that they'd do is use fairly lesser known songs from previous decades which would; I'm guessing, be harder to pick up on for the average listener.

    Re: How did Daft Punk hide their samples so well?

    It's not hidden if it's eventually discovered. They use tracks that are only known to their generation, and bend them well enough so it remains undetectable unless someone uses the tools they used back when they made the tracks.

    Back in the 90's/early 2000's, samplers and such weren't a commodity. Only people with a similar set-up to the duo's equipment could "analyze" a track. Now you got software that is very user-friendly, digital, and with tools to easily emulate analog sampling effects.

    That's my theory on why it took so long. Current House tracks don't take as long to "discover" a certain sample on any of them.
