RE:GENERATION streaming on Hulu

March 23, 2012

Remember that little documentary produced by The Grammys pooling a ton of talent from all genres together to make music magic? You can now watch RE:GENERATION for free. It’s an hour and 22 minutes long, so make sure you have the time to sit down and enjoy it. Again, here’s the info on what this is all about:

RE:GENERATION is a feature length documentary that explores the history of music through the eyes of five modern DJ/Producers. The extremely talented DJs embark on a musical odyssey to create a cutting edge electronic track inspired by one of five traditional musical genres: Jazz, R&B, Country, Classical and Rock.

In addition to Skrillex working with The Doors, the project, which is actually co-produced by the Grammys, brought in DJ Premier to produce a classical track with Nas and the Berklee School of Music Orchestra; Pretty Lights, who produced a country song with Leann Rimes and Ralph Stanley; the Crystal Method, who traveled to Detroit to record an R&B track with Martha Reeves; and Mark Ronson, who collaborated with Erykah Badu, members of the Dap Kings and Trombone Shorty for a jazz tune in New Orleans.

FIVE DJs TURN THE TABLES ON THE HISTORY OF MUSIC

Follow DJ Premier, Mark Ronson, Skrillex, Pretty Lights and The Crystal Method as they remix, recreate and re-imagine five traditional styles of music. From the classical perfection of the Berklee Symphony Orchestra to the bayou jams of New Orleans jazz, our five distinctive DJs collaborate with some of today’s biggest musicians to discover how our musical past is influencing the future.

Without further ado, here’s RE:GENERATION Music Project (2012):

UPDATE: Ugh, I apologize for the autoplay and just spent a large period of time trying to figure out how to disable it. I HATE autoplay. I’ve used all the codes I know of for disabling autoplay and hulu continues to autoplay it. I’ll try to figure it out some more and if it still doesn’t work, I may take this off and see if I can find a non-Hulu version, which I doubt.

UPDATE 2: Yep, can’t turn off the autoplay for some reason, so I took the embed off. Just go here to watch. I really don’t want it auto playing crap when you load the page, it’s such a pain. =)

OFFICIAL VID: RAC (Karl Kling) – Life On The Run

January 11, 2012

Karl Kling of RAC (Remix Artist Collective) just shared this video for his song Life On The Run. The video was shot by his brother Kris Kling. Now let me just say, I happen to LOVE turtles! I’ve had my fair share of pet turtles growing up. They’re a lot faster than people think. So, of course I’m enjoying this video full of cute little cold blooded reptiles very much. On top of that, Karl Kling’s track is an upbeat and fun tune with an infectious melody and great beats. End result? Definitely a win.

Crystal Castles’ Leny ADAT RMX

December 19, 2011

Saw this over the weekend, but didn’t have the chance to post till now. Anything that has “Crystal Castles” in it is worth posting. OK, almost anything. Here’s the noisy, mega distorted Leny (ADAT RMX). Though it’s short of the brilliance and amazing stuff the cult worshipped Crystal Castles has put out in the past, I’m happy for anything new that they’ve touched. I’m eagerly awaiting new material and more doses of that crazy, wild Alice Glass.

Acid Jazz and 90’s breaks!

Katie Herzig – Free Your Mind (RAC Mix)

Here’s a brand new remix for Katie Herzig! I wanted to make it epic. Lots of string arrangements, swells, sweeps and half-time buildups. 

Hope you like it!

Currently at #5 on hypemachine. 

Great remix from RAC. Figured I’d just reblog from the RAC tumblr. Like I said, RAC remixes are almost always spectacular.
