Bang! Bang! Bang!


He’s the man with the Midas touch—that everything he lays his finger on is music gold, or in industry-speak … platinum.

Mark Ronson, the NYC-based Brit producer-in-demand and DJ whose latest studio project The Record Collection has made the music press shuffle their feet with its pastiche of pop-soul that’s laced with liberal sprinklings of disco, electro and funk.

Not to mention that Ronson has called on the talents of some of his famous friends such as former Culture Clubber Boy George, Spank Rock, MNDR, Ghostface Killah and even Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon amongst countless others, to guest star on the record.

A scion of a musical family—his father Mick Ronson was David Bowie’s guitarist while stepfather Mick Jones is from 70s rock band Foreigner. Ronson, who also happens to be Samantha Ronson’s (who was here in 2009 for the Fuel Festival) brother, will be dropping by Stereolab this April 1 to toss some tunes from behind the decks with pals, American hip-hop group Spank Rock and one-woman electro-pop outfit MNDR.

Trendsetter, influencer and tastemaker… Whatever you might call him, Ronson boasts some serious DJing chops, cutting his teeth in the NYC hip hop club circuit in the 90s and even working with people such as Nate Dogg, Sean Paul and Mos Def. And who can forget the colossal success of Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black which was mostly produced by him as well as collaborations with Christina Aguilera, Adele, Lily Allen, and Robbie Williams.
