Mark Ronson



You could be forgiven for passing Mark Ronson’s too-cool-for-school vibe on the phone off as indifference. That is, until the conversation turns to the Summerdayze, Summerfeildayze and Feildayze-bound producer’s musical tastes and who he’s looking forward to seeing on the festival tour. Then, it’s hard to stop him talking. “I’m particularly looking forward to seeing Araabmuzik, Hudson Mowhawke, of course M.I.A. and the Chemical Brothers,” he tells inthemix in the lead-up to the New Year’s visit. “I think this year is a good mix of commercial and underground stuff. I think in the past years it’s been quite commercial, but this time there are a whole lot of great dance acts and some great hip-hop acts.”

But the super-producer’s unsure of what will go into his own set, mainly because he’s been busy in the studio with little-known names like Paul McCartney and Alicia Keys. But Ronson did promise, however, that the vibe of the set will be like “taking a journey through a glorious jukebox of best soul, dance and hip-hop from about 40 years, all put together. But I’m not just going to be playing a golden era set,” he adds. “I’m heavy on a lot of new stuff as well. It will be quite a mix.” check out the full ITM interview here
