    Sampling has been a grey area for producers ever since it became a widespread composition device. No one is immune; if super-ultra-megastar producer Timbaland can get called out for possibly stealing a beat, anyone can.
    This video right here isn’t the same type of scandal, but it is an interesting document that sorta deflates some of Daft Punk’s divinely French electro. Since nobody’s ever called them on any of these bits and we’re too lazy to go looking through liner notes, we’ll assume that Thomas and Guy-Manuel cleared the samples they used on these records.
    But wow … they really could have at least dressed them up a little more. They’re close enough that we’re wondering if the video isn’t the real fake, messing with us in an attempt to drum up controversy.
