Uptown Funk (ft. Bruno Mars) - Mark Ronson

Song: Uptown Funk (ft. Bruno Mars)
Artist: Mark Ronson
Album: Uptown Special

First single from Writer/Producer Mark Ronson's upcoming fourth album Uptown Special, due in January of next year.  He collaborates on the track with singer-songwriter Bruno Mars, whom he produced three tracks off his latest Unorthodox Jukebox, including the singles "Locked Out of Heaven" and "Gorilla."

"Uptown Funk" finds the pair diving deep into early 80s Funkadelic, a retro-redux of slap-bass, synths, and they-just-don't-write-'em-like-that-anymore Uptown cool.  It seems just about perfect for Ronson, as well as Bruno... who have both carved careers with more sounds from the past than the present or future.  Ronson's biggest gift is not letting it all sound like a retread, which has been the cornerstone of his career.
