Mark Ronson: “Sampling Changed Music”

Mark Ronson: “Sampling Changed Music”

DJ, singer, and music producer Mark Ronson speaks on the science of sampling in a new TED talk, highlighting the difference between recycling sounds versus creating new sounds with sampled elements.

Ronson demonstrated his point by remixing past TED talks into an A/V collage, before dissecting the history of Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick’s “La Di Da Di,” and its evolution.

He also spoke about avoiding redundancy while working with Amy Winehouse on her second album, Back To Black, and shares his thoughts about Miley Cyrus reusing the hook for “La Di Da Di” on her track “We Can’t Stop.”
