Mark Ronson was one of five influential DJs and producers asked by the
Grammys and the Re:Generation Music Project to take a specific genre and
record a new track within that style with a collection of high-profile
collaborators. For Ronson's track, titled "A La Modeliste," he teamed up
with Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Trombone Shorty, members of the Dap Kings
and drummer Zigaboo Modeliste for a dynamic, hip-hop accented take on
jazz. You can check out that track below.
All five remixers who participated in the project — Ronson, DJ Premier,
Skrillex, the Crystal Method and Pretty Lights — will discuss how they
made their tracks in a documentary due in February 2012 on YouTube.
