Some of the examples in that video are so retarded... but also some of them clearly point out that DP definitely did sample a SHIT ton of stuff. The HBFS one is just offensive to me. I never read up on that... did they give credit to the original artists?

take your own time, explore the whole layout, and press play at the bottom of the page and start going wild! twist/turn the knobs, click/unclick the buttons, connect/remove the instruments and what not :ugeek:.

This page might help clear things up, namely in the second paragraph of the sections entitled 'Theme':

On another, related matter, I seem to recall reading that one of the working titles for the album was 'Very Disco'. Disco? Very.

Not in the beginning no... there was some confusion on this a while back. The credit was printed on all sleeves thereafter when people started "discovering"
