‘The Great Gatsby’ Soundtrack – preview!

Two of music’s greatest, Beyonce & Andre 3000, have had the honour of covering two more of the industry’s best for ‘The Great Gatsby’ soundtrack. ‘Back To Black,’ a track produced by Mark Ronson with  Amy Winehouse, was chosen to be featured on the anticipated films accompanying album.

However, while Mark Ronson is ‘flattered’ by the rendition, not everyone is happy about it.  The late Amy Winehouse’s father, Mitch Winehouse, disproves of not only the choice of it to be re-done, but how it has been changed and altered.

Judge it for yourself here.

 

 

 

Paul McCartney moving onto…electronic music?

One of the world’s most famous musicians, ex-beatle Paul McCartney has expressed his interested in experimenting and potentially entering the EDM world. Producer Mark Ronson has already talked about his collab’s with the music legend and has told us what McCartney is searching for in his music style..

 “He came in one day playing some post-Bonde do Role baile funk-moombahton thing, asking, ‘How do we get this kind of energy?’ And then he played me ‘Climax’ by Usher, and he was like, ‘I love where all the sonics sit in this.’”

It is a far cry from the classic hits he became a star for last century, but as a Beatle’s fan, i’m excited for anything this man produces.

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
