Producer: J Dilla
Album: Fantastic, Vol.2
Label: GoodVibe Recordings
The last single from SV's Fantastic Vol. 2, was much more aggressive, upbeat and digital than the sound found on the rest of the album. This stemmed from “Raise It Up's” sample, which was taken from Daft Punk member Thomas Bangalter's “Extra Dry.” Dilla Dog found the song on a bootleg recording and sampled without permission, figuring the artist was too obscure to notice.
Unknown to Dilla, Daft Punk were huge fans of Slum Village and immediately picked up on the sample. But instead of demanding payment, the French duo agreed to let the sample slide if Slum Villa would simply remix one of their records. What transpired was Dilla's official remix of Daft Punk's “Aerodynamic,” which no doubt surprised fans of both acts, and lent Daft Punk further credibility in hip-hop circles.
