Wired: Diplo Talks Sample of the Millennium, the Return of Fun and Other Musical Secrets
"It’s very competitive, this crew we have, of DJs — competitive about how good it sounds, like how good our mixing and mastering is, because that’s a fucking skill that we all hone and try to compete with each other. It’s also how different it sounds, and how it can be integrated into a set. Those are three qualities a record has to have if you’re a producer. And at the other end, I’m still producing pop and R&B records, and I take a little bit of what I learn in the club scene with my friends and take a little of that pop style, and try to use it to my advantage and just keep learning."
I also did not know that the Clash sample in "Paper Planes" is actually replayed, and not a direct sample.
