Feb 18, 2016

I can't even finish my question before Mark Ronson answers it. "How does it feel to have a song that...?" I ask, and he replies "...will be played at weddings for the rest of time" without missing a beat. Needless to say, he has heard this question before, and he's well aware that "Uptown Funk," the inescapable disco-pop anthem he wrote with Bruno Mars, has graduated to the list of songs that will provide the backdrop for public celebrations for as long as mirror balls reflect light.

A Change is Gonna Come

Oct 12, 2010

Going into the follow-up to his 2007 smash album Version Mark Ronson knew he needed to do something different. Although Ronson's previous production work with Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen catapulted him to the forefront of prestigious DJs/producers worldwide, Version established him as an artist in his own right, with its danceable, horn-filled reinterpretations of seminal British songs from the likes of Radiohead, The Jam, and The Smiths. The album was cutting edge, but with its success came a backlash, especially from those who took offense to his genre-hopping covers of what Ronson refers to as beloved sacred cows. More

"Uptown Funk," the first single off of Mark Ronson's new album Uptown Special, is a funk and Motown track, slickly bedazzled with the coolness of Bruno Mars's attitude and style, and though the album as a whole doesn't totally resemble that track inasmuch as a surface approach, it does seem to be indicative of this sonic painting of a particular time and landscape.
