Mark Ronson – 'Uptown Special'. What does the man who has everything in life truly desire? What could someone born into glitz and money, with a career as a music producer and DJ, with model good looks and a good-looking model wife really need ? Mark Ronson had it all, except a hit he could call his own. The transatlantic success of ‘Uptown Funk’ has changed all of that. He is finally complete. But what of the rest of the album? Well, ‘Uptown Special’ isn’t 11 tracks of ’80s funk pastiche. No, there are psychedelic rock pastiches (assisted by Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker), a few Yacht Rock pastiches and a hugely infectious James Brown pastiche (the Mystikal-vocalled ‘Feel Right’) as well. Ronson might object to the word pastiche. After all, he asked Pulitzer-winning writer Michael Chabon to write lyrics, which let’s be honest, The Darkness never did.
