Bang Bang Bang (ft. Q-Tip & MNDR)

Song: Bang Bang Bang (ft. Q-Tip & MNDR)
Artist: Mark Ronson & The Business Intl.
Album: Record Collection

I was a huge fan of Mark Ronson's second album "Version," a collection of off-beat covers that hopped genre's but kept in line with Ronson's 60's obsessed soul vibe.  (It was a great companion album to the Ronson produced "Back in Black" by Amy Winehouse.)  It's been a while, but Ronson is set to release his follow up, "Record Collection" under the name Mark Ronson & The Business Intl.

First single "Bang Bang Bang" featuring Q-tip & MNDR is very busy and joyous... like an entire party  wrapped up in one song.  Like Ronson's earlier material, it's got a modern sensibility to it as it starts out, then segues into that classic, swingin' 60's vibe.  I really dig it, and cool to see Ronson writing some original material.  Second single "The Bike Song"is also another winner, as well as the recently leaked "Lose It (In the End)" feat. Ghostface Killah.  I'm very very interested in hearing the rest of the album.  (I'm also really digging the album and single art, a mix of "fake" vinyl artwork laid out to form the actual art.   Cool.)

He's been pretty busy producing other artists since making it big with Winehouse and Lily Allen, so it's nice to hear him doing something in his name.
