RE:GENERATION : MARK RONSON FEAT. MRS BADU & YASIIN BEY- A LA MODELISTE (MUSIC VIDEO) by Noggy

Okay this is the sh* Noggy’s talking about!!

Hyuandai Veloster presents the RE:GENENRATION project. The project follows 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, the five distinctive DJs collaborate with some of today’s biggest musicians to discover how our musical past is influencing the future.

First up one of my favorites … Mark Ronson. It’s obvious he took his task very seriously cause he is hitting us up with supreme quality music. In collaboriaton with Erykah Badu, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), Trombone Shorty and The Dap Kings he brings us “A la Modeliste”, a comtemperary blues track that will have clapping your hands and stomping your feet in no time.

Needless to say I am looking forward to more visuals of the RE:GENERATION project.



ROBERT GLASPER EXPERIMENT FT. MUSIQ SOULCHILD & CHRISETTE MICHELLE – AH YEAH by Noggy

I’ve already blogged two audio streams of  The Robert Glasper Experiments upcoming album “Black Radio” on @Noggy73 … but to make sure that  Strangefruit readers are in the know … you can stream the first visual of the album below. For  more info on the album I suggest you hit up the Robert Glasper website.

The tracklist and the audiostreams featuring King and Erykah Badu are tangible proof that “Black Radio” is not only the music must-have of 2012 (eventhough it just started) but also a modern classic ..

Yep it looks like the 28th of February 2012 will be a beautiful day in music history.



JESSE BOYKINS – ZONER (MUSIC VIDEO) by Noggy

Damnnn what is not to love about Jesse Boykins the III. His never ending creativity brings us the video for “Zoner” from the FreeEp Way of a Wayfarer.

If despite the beautiful visuals and Jesse’s warm soothing voice, like me,  you are still wondering what a “Zoner” is.  Team Boykins offers the following explanation … There is a misconception when one is lost in themselves because society can miss the truth behind it. This video is a pure introduction to Jesse Boykins III’s soul and takes a piece of his mind and displays it for the world be a part of. There is the reality of being alone, but also the desire to lust for something that inspires and assists the creation of beauty, a Zoner.

Can’t help it … now I love him even more …
