Skrillex - “Breakn’ a Sweat” feat. Members of The Doors

ISH KNOWS…I freakin’ love the Re:Generation Music Project.  They put one of my fave new artists with members of a legendary band to cook up a sick ass track.  So filthy!  This shit knocks.  I love the mutual respect the new & old school show each other.  At the end of the day, it’s about the MUSIC!  Artists win, fans win, we all win! 

""We might do some stuff in that direction," The Doors’ keyboardist Ray Manzarek says. "What I’d like to do and what might happen is to do some electronic treatments of the songs, of the multi-tracks we have, Robby (Krieger) and I working with different people. That would be a lot of fun. That’s the new realm of music, electronics. Electronics can go anywhere, so that’s what I’m looking forward to in the future."

Manzarek says the Doors were asked to play “Breakin’ a Sweat” with Skrillex on this year’s Grammy Awards telecast, but the plan was nixed by drummer John Densmore, who plays on the track but remains in “virtual total incommunicado” with his estranged bandmates. But the keyboardist is confident that the late Doors frontman Jim Morrison would approve of adapting the Doors’ music in that manner. “He’d love it. He was no purist,” Manzarek says. “His words were his mileau. He might be, ‘Don’t f*** with my words,’ but he’d be open for all kind of improvisations. He loved that stuff.”
