Skrillex Participates in the Re:Generation Music Project!

The RE:GENERATION MUSIC PROJECTproduced in association withThe GRAMMYs examines the history of different music through the eyes of fiveof the most influential electronic producer/DJs in music today. Mark Ronson, DJPremier, The Crystal Method, Pretty Lights and Skrillex each take a specific musical style and explore it by writing and recording a brand new track with a grouping of influential collaborators in that genre. The stories of these five DJsare woventogether in a feature documentary and as of today, Thursday, October 27, four of the five tracks by DJ Premier, The Crystal Method, Pretty Lights and Skrillex recorded for the film due February 2012 world premiere at YouTube.

Allthetracks will be available for free download via the RE:GENERATION DJ Mixer App launching November 7. The project will be showcased online and at a series ofliveevents including music and film festivals, as well through othermedia and distribution channels sponsored by Hyundai Veloster over the next several months.

The entireexperience comes to life in the RE:GENERATION feature documentary directed by award-winning documentarian Amir Bar-Lev (“My Kid Could Paint That,” “The Tillman Story”). Along the way, these five DJ/producers journey to hotbeds for each genreincluding New Orleans for jazz, Nashville for country, Los Angeles for rock, Boston for classical and Detroitfor R&B. For example, youll find Denver-based Pretty Lights traveling to Nashville, visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame andgoing into the studio with the legendary Dr. Ralph Stanley and LeAnnRimes for Wayfaring Stranger.Skrillex teams up with Ray Manzarekand Robby Krieger along the Venice Boardwalk in Los Angeles and then later collaborates on Breakn A Sweat with John Densmore for what will amount to the first original recording featuring members of The Doors since AnAmerican Prayer was released in 1978.
