If you remember the 90s, then you’ll definitely remember the song Smack My Bitch Up by The Prodigy. It is known that different tracks and vocals were sampled and altered in the process of making the song. But just how many samples and to what effect?

Ukranian music producer, Jim Pavloff, managed to put together an authentic recreation of the song using Ableton Live. He started by recreating The Prodigy’s original process using more modern software. He then copied, pasted, stretched, cleansed and manipulated the samples and original synth parts until The Prodigy rave hit emerged.
