Move over Timbaland, Mark Ronson is the hottest producer in the music business right now. On his new release, Version, Ronson displays his versatility, masterfully crafting tracks for Kenna, Phantom Planet, Lily Allen, and others. I’ve been listening to the CD a lot recently, especially the more dance-oriented singles. “Stop Me” is definitely the highlight of the album, borrowing excruciatingly catchy vocals from Daniel Merriweather, who collabs with Ronson on other tracks. Ronson takes a more live-band approach to Lily Allen’s “Oh My God”, as you can see in the video below.
