Mark Ronson - Version (and free liveset)

Here Comes the Fuzz from 2003 was a serious headsup in regards to this fella. Lately he's been proving to be a lot more than a good track selector and a skilled mashup chef, with production for Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen amongst others. I previously mentioned the sampler of this album, and it's expectations were more than met. This is a rock solid album, and it's definitely one of my favorites this year. This kind of funky 'pop'-ish sound works remarkably well and is one of the freshest flavors you'll get this year. If this album doesn't get it's fair bit of recognition, I'll start working promotion for free (kinda like now, go figure)... Don't believe my rants & raves of acclaim? Check out the bold tracks. If I had to narrow it down even further, go for tracks #2 and #13

01 - God Put a Smile Upon your Face (ft the Daptone Horns)
02 - Oh my God (ft Lily Allen)
03 - Stop Me (ft Daniel Merriweather)
04 - Toxic (ft Ol' Dirty Bastard and Tiggers)
05 - Valerie (ft Amy Winehouse)

06 - Apply Some Pressure (ft Paul Smith)
07 - Inversion
08 - Pretty Green (ft Santo Gold)
09 - Just (ft Phantom Planet)
10 - Amy (ft Kenna)
11 - The Only One I Know (ft Robbie Williams)
12 - Diversion
13 - L.S.F. (ft Kasabian)

14 - Outversion

Also, to prove this fella knows his way around two turntables, check out his guest spot on Pete Tong's Essential Mix which was recorded January 1. 2007.
