Daft Punk has had a tremendous year with the release of Random Access Memories, their first album in 8 years.

Their song “Get Lucky” off the album would bring the duo back to Billboard’s top 40.

Their first song to break into the charts was 2000’s “One More Time.” The song was a massive hit and appears on many of the greatest songs of all-time lists from Rolling Stone to Pitchfork and on and on.

The Daft Punk boys are kings of sampling, but initially denied then admitted to using a sample on the “One More Time” track.

Here at AMP Radio, we have some pretty talented production guys, you know, the ones who make all those cool imaging things you hear in between the music. So today’s Viral Video of the Day is for all you producers/DJ’s, fans of Daft Punk, and production nerds out there.

A producer recreates the sample for “One More Time,” and you can get an inside look at what it takes to make computer music or do what imaging people do here at AMP Radio.

We’ll also take a look at some of the samples Daft Punk has used over the years in their music.

Also, another fun fact about sampling comes from one of my all-time favorite bands. The Beastie Boys’ 1989 classic album Paul’s Boutique, produced by the Dust Brothers, had 105 samples on it from other songs.

It’s said that today if they would’ve tried to make that same album, it would cost millions upon millions to clear all the samples they used. Back in the day, it wasn’t so costly and some of the samples were not cleared.

Get you’re geek on if you’re into it, and check out the videos for today’s Viral Video of the Day.
