NOW: MARK RONSON & THE BUSINESS INTL. – RECORD COLLECTION (2010)
“I want to be in your record collection.” Mark Ronson is a DJ/producer/singer. He is the king of combining elements and coming up with a fresh new sound. On this album, he adds many synthesizers from the 80’s. He has guest singers Boy George and Simon Le Bon from Duran Duran pitch in. The retro sound he made famous with Amy Winehouse is also apparent here. This is a fun upbeat and swinging sound. Every song is packed with a punch.
THEN: MARK RONSON – VERSION (2007)
I couldn’t think of any older cd to compare because I feel these two Mark Ronson albums are so unique and belong together. On VERSION, he uses covers of older songs and has other vocalist sing on them. He covers The Smiths to Britney. Go figure. It is also fun and packed with punch. Amy Winehouse sings a song and again Mark likes to mash it up!!!
