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.
