On June 26, 2010 at the launch party for The Creators Project at Milk Studios in New York, I had not one, but two encounters with the hottest DJ / producer in the world (and I mean that in more than one way), Mark Ronson! Mark Ronson has been involved with so much music that has rocked my world in a great way, including Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black” album as well as Nikka Costa’s “Everybody Got Their Something.” His two solo albums, “Version” and “Here Comes the Fuzz,” are also great and feature amazing songs by both Nikka and Amy Winehouse. When I arrived at Milk Studios for this once in a lifetime event, I saw Mark Ronson rehearsing for his late night DJ set and when he was finished, I asked for a photo. He was super nice! He also autographed his two solo albums for me and he was very impressed that I had “Here Comes The Fuzz,” as it was not well received on the charts.
Several hours later, I was enjoying a cocktail in the VIP section on the roof deck of Milk Studios and Mark Ronson was hanging out with some friends. When we caught eyes, he said hello to me, and it made me extremely happy that he remembered our previous meeting! Since the lighting was much better on the roof deck (and as he had changed his outfit), I seized the moment for another photo op. Again, he was totally nice!
Later in the evening, Mark Ronson did a really awesome DJ set and he was joined by MNDR to perform their new single “Bang Bang Bang,” from his upcoming album “Record Collection.”
I also met the fabulous MNDR at this event (and she was also very nice) and more on that encounter coming soon, so stay tuned. Again, extra special thanks to Mark Ronson for being such a nice guy and for making such great music! I am really looking forward to “Record Collection,” and he will also be producing Duran Duran’s next album! Mark Ronson, you rule!
