The musical documentary RE:Generation looks at the history, songwriting and studio process of different musical genres through the eyes of five of the most influential electronic producers/DJs in music today, each of whom writes and records a brand new track with a grouping of influential collaborators in that genre.

The tagline for the film is “5 DJs Turn the Tables on the History of Music.”

Musical subjects and guests include Skrillex (with members of the Doors), Mark Ronson (with Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Trombone Shorty, members of the Dap Kings and Zigaboo Modeliste), DJ Premier (with NAS and the Berklee Symphony Orchestra), the Crystal Method (with Martha Reeves of the Vandellas and the Funk Brothers), and Pretty Lights (with Dr. Ralph Stanley and LeAnn Rimes).

Directed by Amir Bar Lev, who made the award-winning documentaries My Kid Could Paint That and The Tillman Story, Re:Generation will see a limited theatrical release in select cities and venues on Thursday, February 16, including three area theaters:

Poway Creekside Plaza 10

13475 Poway Road

Mission Valley Cinemas

In the film, current five-time Grammy-nominated artist Skrillex heads into a Los Angeles studio with members of the iconic rock band The Doors to collaborate on a new song, “Breakn’ A Sweat.”

The Crystal Method touches down in Detroit to work with Martha Reeves of The Vandellas and The Funk Brothers on the R&B number “I’m Not Leaving.”

Mark Ronson creates a southern brew of New Orleans jazz in “A La Modeliste” that boasts a veritable all-star cast of Erykah Badu, Trombone Shorty, Mos Def, Zigaboo Modeliste and Members of The Dap Kings.

DJ Premier tapped NAS and Boston's very own Berklee Symphony Orchestra for his “Regeneration,” and the documentary culminates in Nashville on the dusty, intergalactic twang of Pretty Lights' "Wayfaring Stranger" featuring vocals from LeAnn Rimes and Dr. Ralph Stanley.

The documentary garnered more than two million views of the aggregated clips from the film, as well as more than 1 million streams of the tracks in the first six weeks since they launched.

Says Scott Kirkland of the Crystal Method, “There is no sound we can’t make. There’s not a beat we can’t create. There’s not an artist we can’t record…Now what?”
