REGENERATION MUSIC PROJECT Review + Downloads: Pretty Lights, Mark Ronson, Skrillex, Crystal Method, DJ Premier

Go see REGERENATION:MUSIC PROJECT - the documentary about today's premier hip hop and electro producers, DJs and artists and what happens when they pair them with historic music figures to create unorthodox tracks. I saw it last Thursday (its only being shown two Thursdays this month in select cities). 

Its a great documentary for so many reasons. One - the music is awesome. Two - the DJs/Producers/Artists showcased are incredible. Three - it gives an intriguing glimpse into how these artists create music. It shows them creating the environment they need to generate ideas and to just riff and collaborate with others until something really cool forms. Four - it is a really fun exploration of the opportunities and challenges of Old School and New School coming together to make music. Overall, the documentary was really interesting and done really well. It tells a great story and keeps your attention for an hour and a half. 

You can Download the songs that Skrillex, DJ Premier, Crystal Method, Pretty Lights and Mark Ronson produce in the documentary for free here. They're all great:
