Mark Ronson- Version

April 6th, 2007

Mark Ronson’s a busy man. He’s been producing for Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen and Robbie Williams, yet has still found time to focus on his own studio album. Comprised of new versions of old classics, it’s a very entertaining listen from back to front, featuring the likes of Amy Winehouse, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Daniel Merriweather and Kasabian, all helping Ronson put his considerably fresh and funky twist on familiar tunes. Highlights include the late ODB rapping to the Britney Spears refix of Toxic, Winehouse making vast improvements on the original with ‘Valerie’ and Phantom Planet singing an uber cool version of Radiohead’s ‘Just’. Impressively suited for a party play through, this is definately one to pick up for the nearing summer months.
