Mark Ronson: “Sampling Changed Music”
A little bit of this and little bit of that.
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.”
