Much like Charli XCX, Mark Ronson has often waded in the shadows of those bigger than them, waiting for their moment to break out. Charli had Sucker, Ronson has Uptown Special. Unlike Charlie XCX, Mark Ronson is a super producer who has made a bunch of hits you all know but no idea who is the guy behind it all. He co-produced Amy Whinehouse's breakout album, and has made a living due to his uncanny ability to channel a retro sound while looking forward. And his latest is also his greatest, pulling out all the stops to bring us some old school 70s and 80s funk. And while it never again reaches the heights of the flaming hot single "Uptown Funk", it grooves like no other record in recent memory, even bringing in a psycho like Mystikal to come and funk sh*t up. It's a really cool album. Legit cool.
