Exclusive Stream: Mark Ronson Teams With Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Dap Kings

The Rolling Stone Blog

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.
