[CMJ 2011] RE:GENERATION Documentary Previewed At The Hyundai Re:Mix Lab

The first of five of Hyundai's Re:Mix Labs showcases took place last night in New York City. Along with events in Las Vegas, Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles, the company is spreading the love for gaming, music and technology.

Last night they previewed the trailer for Amir Bar-Lev's music documentary Re:Generation, which was followed by a Q&A featuring himself and the legendary DJ Premier. The documentary features five of the hottest DJ's in music, including DJ Premier, Skrillex, The Crystal Method, Mark Ronson and Pretty Lights, exploring and examining the history of five musical genres that are completely out of their realm. For example, Skrillex met up with The Doors' Ray Manzark and Robby Krieger along the Venice Beach boardwalk, and then later collaborated with John Densmore on "Breakn' A Sweat"—this is also the first original recording featuring members of The Doors since 1978.

The event, which included a DJ set by none other than DJ Premier, kicked off the first of many Re:Mix Labs events that will occur over the next couple of months. Re:Generation is set for release in February 2012, and the five tracks recorded for the documentary will be given away for free via a DJ Mixer App, which launches in November.

Stay tuned for more coverage of events from the Re:Mix Labs and Hyundai.

[Watch] Evidence - "You" (Video)

Enjoy the video for Evidence's new single, "You" straight from the forthcoming album Cats & Dogs , which  drops on September 27th, courtesy of Rhymesayers. The track was produced by legendary hip-hop producer DJ Premier, who you can also find tucked away in the video. The video is pretty trippy. I think I would get confused with that many copies of myself all over the place. 

Make sure you pre-order Cats & Dogs if you haven't yet.

[Listen] Royce Da 5'9" - Second Place (Prod. By DJ Premier)

Damn. I thought I got my fill after hearing the Bad Meets Evil album but just like that a new Royce Da 5'9" track drops produced by the legendary DJ Premier. This track brings me back to hearing Royce's classic banger "Boom" also produced by Primo. The beat is pure fire (like any Premier beat) and Royce's flow is on point. The track is set to appear on Royce's upcoming LP Success Is Certain out July 26th. Peep it below.

[Listen] SebastiAn - "Embody" (DJ Premier 95 Break Remix)

This track has been highly anticipated since it's announcement. Earlier on BBC 1Xtra, MistaJam debuted the remix of Ed Banger Artist SebastiAn's newest single "Embody" remixed by the legendary DJ Premier. This track just bangs all around, French Electro meets 90's Hip Hop and it is funky as hell. Peep it below and grab this once it drops on Tuesday in the US, Monday elsewhere.
