    Three Friday Nights: Mark Ronson

    Mark Ronson‘s spinning skills, which have made him a favourite among the inner circle of Hollywood’s elite, ensured that the Three Friday Nights Finale went out with a bang! A Grammy and Brit award winner, Mark Ronson is internationally renowned as one of the worlds finest DJs. Mark released his own massively acclaimed debut solo album 'Here Comes The Fuzz' in 2003. Using his own unique re-interpretive style, Mark has set out to demonstrate pop voyeurism and experimentalism are not alien forms. His latest album, 'Version', sees him joined by an array of singers; including the irrepressible musical talents of Dirt McGirt with his version of Britney's 'Toxic', Robbie Williams nailing The Charlatans' seminal 'Only One I Know' as if it was his own, in fact making it his own, and then there is his friend Lily Allen on a phenomenal interpolation of The Kaiser Chiefs 'Oh My God'.
