"Raise It Up" is a single by Slum Village. It was the last single to be released from their album, Fantastic, Vol. 2.


The song uses a sample from the song "Extra Dry" by Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk. It was initially used without permission, as producer J Dilla obtained a copy of the song from a bootleg recording, and assumed that the artist was an obscure producer who was unlikely to notice. Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo however happened to be fans of Slum Village, and rather than demand a payment for the sample, instead asked the group to remix one of their own tracks; this ended up becoming Slum Village's remix of the song "Aerodynamic".[1]

The remix of "Fall-N-Love" used a sample of Alice Cooper's "Shoe Salesman".
