Published Oct 27, 2011As you may have unfortunately heard, brostep dude Skrillex has teamed up with the surviving members of the Doors for a collaborative track. Well, that song, "Breakin' A Sweat (It's Alright)," has now surfaced online, and you can check it out now -- if you can stomach it, that is.
Down below, you can stream and/or download this monstrosity. It's a tough one to take, to say the least, especially when that whole "Come on baby light my fire" line comes in. But if you're brave enough, have at it below. We sat through the whole thing, but definitely would never do so ever again.
Obviously, the Doors' Ray Manzarek feels differently, telling Rolling Stone that the song "sounds fucking great, hot as hell. [Skrillex] plays his beat, all he had to do was play the one thing ... I listened to it and I said, 'Holy shit, that's strong.'"
Oh yeah, and this is apparently a "variation" on Mile Davis's Milestones.
The song comes as part of the upcoming documentary RE:GENERATION, a film directed by Amir Bar-Lev. The project features five contemporary producers work with artists from older generations, leading to team-ups like Crystal Method recording with Martha Reeves, Erykah Badu working with Mark Ronson, and Nas and DJ Premier teaming up with the Berklee College of Music Orchestra.
Thanks to Consequence of Sound for the hook-up.
