    It's really cool, but to bad it's just him redoing the song, And not making something totally new this way

    Dope vid! They got everything correct except the middle chanting.. that was done by a singer named Shahin Badar, not the sample mentioned in the vid. Great work nonetheless.

    This may the stupidest comment I've ever read on this site.

    Use the samples they use and produce something half as decent as their version. You fail? No wonder.

    Check yourself Tobert - yours was far from constructive.

    Blah, blah.
    It's just the people that are like "OMG ARTIST X USED A SAMPLE, LOL, THEY SUCK!", while they do not see the skill invovled in making a nice sample into an awesome song.
    Sampling is an art.

    I stand corrected:

    "Actually, The Prodigy did sample Sheila Chandra on early promotional white label version of Smack My Bitch Up.

    When it came time to replace the sample with an original vocal, The Prodigy first asked Sheila Chandra to sing an original vocal line. She refused because she thought the song was "vulgar" so The Prodigy got Shahin Badar to do the vocal instead.

    The fact that Jim knows this incredibly obscure fact makes the inclusion of Sheila Chandra in this tutorial video even more impressive!"

    it's not that obscure - the early live versions of SMBU had the original vocal sample in it... I seem to remember hearing it out a couple of times before they replaced it with the new vocal.
