Hyundai’s RE:GENERATION experiment, which pairs up five producers/DJs with a slew of different acts, has been an absurdly up-and-down affair so far. I mean, just yesterday we heard DJ Premier’s track with Nas and the Berklee Symphony Orchestra, which was great. Then, there was Skrillex’s mindfuck with the surviving members of the Doors.
Now, the program is back in our good graces with the release of the Mark Ronson-helmed “A La Modeliste.” It’s like Southern comfort food for the ears as it pairs up lead vocals from Erykah Badu, spirited shouting from Mos Def, and instrumentation from Trombone Shorty, the Dap-Kings and drummer Zigaboo Modeliste. You can stream the track below. [Rolling Stone]
