L’âge d’or de l’échantillonnage dans le rap: 1982-1992

Christian Béthune


Digital sampling has provided new creative opportunities for DJs and hip-hop producers since inserting a ‘portion’ of a piece of music into a new piece – in its original form or after modifying some of its parameters – always creates specific effects. However, this practice has undermined the rules of intellectual property and as a consequence, as early as 1991, sampling became synonymous with piracy and those who practiced it were heavily condemned. In the final analysis, while it encouraged rappers to develop other forms of creativity, this judgment eventually closed the door on a particularly fruitful way of conceiving music.
