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.



CORINNE BAILEY RAE – LOVE EP (NEW RELEASE) by Noggy

Contrary to earlier reports that Corinne”s “Love EP” would drop on Valentine’s Day … the EP is available right here and now. Which I think is much better because now I’m certain I will make someone happy on Valentine’s Day.

Apart from the release date there is something else I have to correct. I kinda mentioned that Mrs Rae is the mistress of taking the sex out of everything and making it sound innocent. But after seeing the live performance video of “Que Sera Sera”  … I guess in her case  it’s  just a matter of reverse psychology. The original by Doris Day, however lovely, is basically a very cheesy track. In order to make this track her own Mrs Rae took a few pointers from Sly and the familiy Stone and added some rock to their blues …. now that is some rendition!!
