Okay, so being from the South I know how amazing NOLA is. New Orleans, Louisiana, a cultural center of hip-hop, bounce, and jazz is bringing you the latest and greatest in hip-hop and electronic dance music at this crazy weekend event called the BUKU Project. It all goes down March 17-18 where some of the world’s best DJs will grace NOLA with their presence and epic music. The line up: Avicii, Wiz Khalifa, Skrillex, Yelawolf, Diplo, Porter Robinson, Mord Fustang, Gramatik, SBTRKT, Figure, Rockie Fresh, and SOOO many more. It surely is an event that will not disappoint and definitely worth seeing. I know I’m thinking about making the trek, so if you are at all interested I really recommend looking into it!!

While all of the tracks of the RE:Generation project are available to listen to on HyundaiUSA’s Youtube account, the official music video for Skrillex & The Doors’ Breakin a Sweat is up and it is killer. The song truly is an innovative take on Skrillex’s style fused with the Rock n’ Roll reputation of The Doors. This really shines a light on what the RE:generation project is trying to accomplish. Truly incredible and unique innovation from Skrillex. I hope to see more stuff like this from him. Give the other RE:Generation project mixes a listen as well. They are all one of a kind.
Don’t worry! The next posts will all be dedicated to more regeneration mixes!
For those who are unaware of what the Regeneration Music Project is, I encourage you all to take a look at the RE:Generation Music Project’s trailer to get the full effect. Essentially five of the world’s best DJs/Producers: Mark Ronson, DJ Premier, Skrillex, Pretty Lights, and The Crystal Method are remixing, recreating, and re-imagining five traditional styles of music. Partnering with some of the greatest musicians in the fields of classical, New Orleans jazz, rock, country, and R&B music, today’s biggest musicians are challenged to discover how our musical past is influencing the future.

Be on the lookout for their completed projects soon!
Holy Crap. Can I just start out by saying that before you listen to these mixes, I want you to know this kid is only 14 years old. No joke! Producing for less than a year, he is definitely one to keep an eye on because if his work over the last few months is any indication of work to come then he will be a household name in no time. My jaw literally dropped with this mashup of Nero and Skrillex. Truly speechless. Check the kid out and prepare to be impressed.

Skrillex Christmas Lights:
Not overdone at all, whatsoever! We wish our Christmas Lights looked this cool. If Skrillex’s First of the Year (Equinox) doesn’t put you in the holiday spirit then we aren’t exactly sure what will! Happy Holidays! From the Electronic State of Mind Crew.
