It’s hard for older generations to understand the “button pushing” ways of today’s music landscape, which is why it’s great to see producers resurfacing classic hits, allowing for a crossover effect to take place. Italian house producer Riva Starr takes on The Doors’ 1967 hit “The End” and adds an energetic beat and groovy undertone. The original song was written by Jim Morrison about breaking up with his girlfriend, but evolved into an 11-minute odyssey during live shows, eventually landing in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Hopefully you and your old man can bond over this majestic piece of music.
Skrillex is back with a video to “Breakin’ a Sweat,” his famous collaboration with The Doors that was released earlier this year. The video starts out following two mutants jetskiing around a deathly body of water, being chased by robotic sharks. Bizarre antics remaining consistent, after feasting on some floating eggs, the mutants are transported to the real world with the woman impregnated. After stealing a car and fleeing, the woman finds her self giving birth – or something like that. Checkout the video, but take caution — it is as weird as it seems.
We were more than just a little upset when Skrillex collaborated with Korn for “Narcissistic Cannibal.” Thankfully, Sonny Moore completely redeemed himself when he teamed up with the Doors for the ground-breaking documentary “RE:GENERATION.”
The remaining Doors members; Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and Jon Densmore, join the young producer in the studio for this behind the scenes look at their collaboration “Breakn’ a Sweat.” Delicately mixing the old school Doors rock sound and Skrillex’s electronic mayhem, this track represents the first new Doors release in the 21st century. As someone who grew up on classic rock, it is refreshing to see such legendary musicians back in the studio for the first time in over 10 years.
Did anyone else notice the name of the hotel at the beginning of the video? Kyoto.Posted by
