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.

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.

DOWNLOAD: AMP LIVE – YOU ARE NOT HUMAN (THE LOVE EP)

Very appreciative of this free download by Amp Live. Love the predominantly jazz infused glitchy beats with a little Hip Hop here and there.

It’s been a while since “Murder at the Discotech” and I’m pleased to see that he’s moved on to something a little less obvious and a bit more experimental. This Ep has a lot of pleasant surprises.

BENNY SINGS – DREAMS (FREE DOWNLOAD) by Noggy

I was very happy to find this in my e-mail today. No wonder considering that “happy” seems to be the main ingredient to all “Bennie Sings”  productions. Bennie Sings is the alias to Tim van Berkenstijn. He is pretty much the Dutch answer to Micheal Franks with a litlle more umphh to his jazz infused pop tracks.

Anyways it’s been a while since his last release “Benny … at home” and after a 4 year hiatus “ART” will be available on the 27th of May. If “Dreams” is any indication of the overall sound I’m kinda looking forward to playing his mostly feelgood sunny tunes this summer. The full album will be available as CD, vinyl and digital album. Pre-order is available at the Dox Records webshop starting today. If you want to keep up with the news, visit the website www.bennysings.com or follow Benny on Facebook and Twitter.
