New Video: RE:GENERATION, Mark Ronson "A La Modeliste"

Back in November I remember seeing footage of the RE:Generation Project, where five popular DJs and producers (DJ Premier, Mark Ronson, Skrillex, Pretty Lights and The Crystal Method) are paired up with various artists to re-create new sounds out of five different traditional styles of music. As a lover of the DJ, the film definitely caught my eye.

Now, an official track from the project (produced by Mark Ronson) has been released featuring neo-soul goddess Erykah Badu, Brooklynite Mos Def, New Orleans natives Trombone Shorty and Zigaboo Modeliste, as well as members of The Dap-Kings, the funkier side of Sharon Jones. 

The project hits select theatres February 16th and 23rd. Click here to find screenings in your town; it’s showing in Brooklyn on the 16th at Indie Screen in Williamsburg!

About ND McCray

Living in St. Louis since 2014, I created UBA in Houston, Texas, in 2007 as a way for me to write about the music, books, movies, art and photography I love. In that time, I've interviewed singers, songwriters, DJs and musicians. I've traveled a lot and written for a variety of publications, too. I also adopted a dog, Nickolas Nelson, named for one of my favorite musicians, Prince Rogers Nelson. So poke around and learn some things!
