Mark Ronson 'combines Kraftwerk and James Brown'

Friday, 24th Sep 2010

Mark Ronson is looking for a new musical direction which he hopes will combine elements of Kraftwerk with James Brown.

The musician explained to the Yorkshire Daily Post that while he realised this eclectic mix is very ambitious, he believes that on his forthcoming tour his fans will see him rise to the challenge.

"What I wanted to show on this record, using synth and stuff like that, is that you don't have to be part of a quasi-80s revival," the frontman of his newly-formed band Mark Ronson and the Business International explained.

Following on from the million-selling success of his second album Version, which spawned hits including Stop Me and Valerie, performed by Amy Winehouse, Ronson hopes that new album Record Collection will confirm his position as a musician as well as producer.

Fans of the DJ can find see for themselves if they agree as his tour kicks off on September 27th 2010 at Bristol's O2 Academy, before taking in cities including Manchester and London during October.
