Mark Ronson was one of five influential DJs and producers asked by the Grammys and the Re:Generation Music Project to take a specific genre and record a new track within that style with a collection of high-profile collaborators. For Ronson's track, titled "A La Modeliste," he teamed up with Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Trombone Shorty, members of the Dap Kings and drummer Zigaboo Modeliste for a dynamic, hip-hop accented take on jazz. You can check out that track below.
All five remixers who participated in the project – Ronson, DJ Premier, Skrillex, the Crystal Method and Pretty Lights – will discuss how they made their tracks in a documentary due in February 2012 on YouTube.
