Biography

London, United Kingdom (1993 - present)

Mark Ronson is a sought-after producer, who’s worked with such diverse artists as Jay-Z, Lily Allen, Robbie Williams, Bruno Mars, Christina Aguilera, Amy Winehouse, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Duran Duran and comedian Jimmy Fallon.

He is probably best-known for his collaboration with Bruno Mars, Uptown Funk, from the 2014 album .Uptown Special,

Born in London, he is the son of writer Ann Dexter-Jones and real estate tycoon Laurence Ronson. His mother later married Mick Jones, lead guitarist of multiplatinum selling rock band Foreigner. He has two sisters: fashion designer Charlotte Ronson and DJ Samantha Ronson. He spent his childhood in a wealthy suburb of London where he lived in the same street as Paul McCartney‘s family. When his parents divorced at age 8, he moved to New York, where he made friends with Beatles offspring Sean Lennon.

Ronson played guitar and drums from an early age, but it wasn’t until moving to New York City with his mother that Ronson discovered DJ culture. At age 16, already a fan of such popular hip-hop artists as Run-D.M.C. and the Beastie Boys, Ronson began listening to the various hip-hop mixtapes released every few months by DJs. Inspired, Ronson confiscated his father’s record collection and began trying his hand at mixing.

    Uptown Funk is overrated as hell, but I'm really glad it blocked Ed Sheeran's crap on Billboard hahaha Thinking Out Shit is one of the worst songs ever

    I love Feel Right, but Uptown Funk is really annoying at times and Bruno completely jacks Nelly's style

    It's funny to see Meghan Trainor among D'Angelo, SBTRKT and Jessie Ware in the similar artists. She certainly doesn't belong with them.

    'Uptown Funk' - The most overrated song of the year. It's not bad, but it's been done better and way before most of these guys were born. It seems music is getting like movies lately; have you heard they remade 'Poltergeist'? Lots of remakes of older material that is inferior to the original.

    I reckon Uptown Special is this year's Random Access Memories (i.e., it'll have one huge single, then nobody will give a shit about the rest of the album and it'll be quietly forgotten 6 months after release).
