The Prodigy's Smack My Bitch Up recreated in 10 minutes
We're not exaggerating when we say that Jim Pavloff's 10-minute recreation of The Prodigy's Smack My Bitch Up, which you can watch below, is one of the finest YouTube tuition videos we've ever seen.
In it, you can not only discover which samples were used in the original track, but also see them being tweaked and processed using the appropriate techniques. Pavloff has managed to authentically recreate the original synth parts, too.
Of course, Ableton Live wasn't around when Liam Howlett produced Smack My Bitch Up back in 1997, so he had to work rather harder in the studio. However, this is still a hugely impressive achievement.
