As you may know, 88Nine's Mardi Gras party is only a few weeks away. To get you ready for Milwaukee's biggest Big Easy party, we want to share with you a video of producer Mark Ronson, Mos Def aka Yasiin, and Erykah Badu performing a song called ‘"A La Modeliste." The track is part of the Re:Generation project from Hyundai (yes, the car company). The song also features Trombone Shorty, Zigaboo Modeliste and members of the Dap-Kings. "A La Modeliste," recorded and performed in New Orleans, has a true Mardi Gras spirit and I hope they released this in the near futute.
Presented by Hyundai Veloster, RE:GENERATION is a documentary film that follows DJ Premier, Pretty Lights, The Crystal Method, Mark Ronson, and Skrillex as they remix, recreate and re-imagine five traditional styles of music. Learn more at youtube.com/veloster and regenerationmusicproject.com.
