The Raveonettes – The End (The Doors cover)

March 6, 2014

Danish indie rock duo The Raveonettes decided to offer up a psychedelic cover of The Doors classic The End. It’s a gentle, whimsical treat that made me melt the moment the opening bars hit. It’s their contribution to A Psych Tribute To The Doors, out March 4 on Cleopatra, which is a compilation of covers by a long list of bands.

Well, well, the world didn’t end, did it? Hur hur hur hur. Big surprise. But that’s no reason not to celebrate the big ol’ prank and joke with some end of the world music! Effing awesome producer Pretty Lights thinks along the same lines. He offered up this 6 minute super mashup and titled it Pretty Lights vs The End of the World. The mix features the likes of Black Sabbath, R.E.M., and The Doors. Epic.

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. =)

Who’s ready for something upbeat and head banging fist pumping? Then listen to this… the Zedd Remix of Skrillex’s RE:GENERATION Project track, Breakn’ A Sweat featuring The Doors. Yea, buddy! Fist pump away!

OFFICIAL VID: Skrillex – Breakn a Sweat ft. The Doors

Must share one last thing before I give our ears a rest for the moment. Sticking with the fist pumping electronic, here’s Skrillex and The Doors on Breakn a Sweat. The track was one of the collaboration pieces to come out of the RE:GENERATION project involving many talented musicians. Read about the project in my post about it here.

Skrillex’s Christmas present

December 23, 2011

Sonny Moore’s little gift to us for Christmas is a brand new EP titled Bangarang! Just released today, the man known as Skrillex said: “happy holidays just like I promised…. just like i always say, go pirate it if you don’t have money..i just want you to have it… or you can buy it here..either way I’ll love you”.

You can buy or stream Bangarang in full on Beatport, here. Or go ahead and stream samples of each track below for a taste (I don’t think these are the full tracks, they cut off abruptly)! As you can see, many other artists of all areas of music collaborated on this EP, including Sirah, Wolfgang Gartner, 12th Planet, Kill the Noise, Ellie Goulding, and even The Doors! 

RE:GENERATION

re:gemeratopm

So I happened to catch the commercial for this on television while watching the not-at-all impressive “Grammy nominations” show last evening. I also played a little game of “who can pronounce Bon Iver right?”. Nicki Minaj failed miserably. Taraji P Henson was the winner with perfect French intonation. Bruno Mars won best effort for pronouncing almost correct, but not drawing the eeee in Iver out enough. Anyway, back to the commercial, I saw it and looked up what the dealio was immediately. Check this video out for RE:GENERATION:

And here’s information I found on the project via this website:

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.

The documentary will premiere in early 2012 and will most likely be a big part of the Grammys next year.

Interesting, eh? Can’t wait to hear how some of these collaborations will sound, since they’re really mixing things up. Here’s the official RE:GENERATION website:

Jim Morrison predicts the future in 1970

August 31, 2011

This video is for real right? 

Please think deeply about this. VERY deeply. This interview took place in 1970. That’s right. Have you guys seen the news segment from the mid 1980’s where news reporters were blown away by Trent Reznor utilizing “samples” in the band he was in at the time (some cheesy unsuccessful 80’s band)? They were amazed about “sampling” and machines making music; they couldn’t understand the machines were not composing the music themselves, and that it was still based on human innovation and interaction.

But back in 1970, Jim Morrison goes and gives THIS interview? Then shuffles off this mortal coil soon after? O_O If only he were alive today!
