Skrillex, Diplo and A-Trak to Team Up to Remix Michael Jackson for Pepsi
Published May 02, 2012Diplo, Skrillex and A-Trak have all garnered acclaim on their own, but the three producers are reportedly about to test their mettle as a supergroup when they issue a collaborative remix of Michael Jackson's "Bad" for Pepsi. It's a case of the soda giant getting the "choice of a new generation" to pay tribute to their former spokesperson, the King of Pop.
According to Mixmag [via FACT], the track will appear later this month to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Jackson's classic 1987 album Bad. The song is alleged to come via a corporate cross-promotion where fans will be able to hear the remix by scanning a code off a pop can using their phones.
While Billboard confirmed last month that the DJs would be involved in the Pepsi promotion, it's unclear if the song will be available elsewhere. If you're more of a Coca-Cola fan, maybe just head into your local convenience store to sneakily scan the can before you buy the competitors' product.
