Mark Ronson had a musical influence from a young age, when his parents split his mother married Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones. He made his name as a DJ on the New York club scene in the early 90s and was noticed for his diverse set which incorporated his New York influences of funk and hip-hop and the more rock inspired approach he got from the UK. He was fast becoming one of the most respected DJs around and was in demand to spin records at celebrity parties.
Whilst continuing to DJ he moved to producing records and soon got himself a record deal. His first album ‘Here Comes the Fuzz’ featured guest artists such as Mos Def, Jack White and Sean Paul, who contributed to the most famous single from the record, ‘Ooh Wee.’
Continuing with the collaboration theme of the previous album, Ronson released the follow-up album in 2007. ‘Version’ was a compilation of covers featuring various different artists. ‘Stop Me’, a cover of The Smiths ‘Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before’, featuring Daniel Merriweather was the first single released and was a big hit. Other songs such as ‘Oh My God’, a Kaiser Chiefs cover featuring Lily Allen and ‘Valerie’, a Zutons remake sung by Amy Winehouse. Ronson had a great year at the Grammys that year winning ‘Best Producer’ and also two other awards shared with Amy Winehouse for ‘Rehab’, her album that Ronson mainly produced.
2008 saw him win a BRITS Awards for ‘Best Male Solo Artist.’ Mark Ronson’s tour was a big success when he toured the UK and he also joined the legendary Duran Duran on stage and performed many of their reworked hits that he produced as well as songs from his album. Duran Duran returned the favour and supported Mark Ronson on stage at the recent Lovebox Festival at Victoria Park in London.
His recent new single ‘Bang Bang Bang’ is the first release with his new band The Business Intl. Don’t miss out on Mark Ronson tickets. Get yours now on GET ME IN!
