Weekend Rewind: Busta Rhymes samples Daft Punk’s ‘Technologic’ for ‘Touch It’
Before Kanye West ever got his hands on “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger,” hip-hop all-stars had made use of Daft Punk‘s robotic sound. Dating back to 2005, Busta Rhymes found the duo’s “Technologic” to sample for the lead single from his album The Big Bang. Produced by Swizz Beats, “Touch It” contains a snippet of the original’s vocal, used as the chorus to support Busta’s verses. Properly crediting Thomas and Guy-Man, “Touch It” is one of the few noteworthy Daft Punk samplings in hip-hop.
