I’m a huge Mark Ronson fan. I actually found myself a few months ago wondering what new music he had coming up as I play some of his older tunes regularly in my sets and it has been a few years since we’ve heard from him. He’s known for more of a mashup and cover style with his music, along with celebrity collaborations. This time he teams up with none other than pop sensation Bruno Mars with “Uptown Funk,” the first single off Ronson’s new album, Uptown Special. The song has a deliberate feel of a classic 80’s Prince-inspired punk-funk tune. While it may not be groundbreaking in terms of a new sound, it’s funky and makes you want to dance. I applaud both Ronson and Bruno for this and can’t get enough of it!
