It can't. That's the part if the sampling license
that doesn't work. Negativland can have a CC
sampling license attached to our work, meaning
you are free to transformatively re-use *our*
work...but the folks that *we* transformatively
re-used in our work gave us no such permission.
So you are not protected. What can happen when
you sample a sampler? When you sample a sample
that isn't cleared?
Personally we don't find sampling a sampler to be
a very interesting creative avenue to pursue, so
we never do it.

Me, I'd say you have ZERO risk. Who will know or
care about what you do? Realistically, no one. I
am continually shocked at the chilling effect
these laws and supposed threats have on artists
who have literally nothing to worry about. Those
silly industry lawyers who *might* have noticed
you are now far too busy worrying about thier
entire business model collapsing and suing their
customers. They don't care about someone selling
a few thousand CDs or making a free download of
their work. I personally think its safer than its
been in over a decade to do this sort of work,
but some may disagree with me.
