Enter to win a copy of Mark Ronson's new vinyl 10-inch, a promo copy featuring two of his new tracks from his forthcoming album, Record Collection: the instrumental "Circuit Breaker" and "Lose It (In the End)" feat. Ghostface Killah.
Out in the fall, Record Collection will be Mark Ronson's third album and will be released under the name Mark Ronson & The Business Intl. The record features artists such as Boy George, Kyle Falconer from The View, ex-Pipettes singer Rose Elinor Dougall, US rappers Ghostface Killah and Q-Tip among others.
While living in Minneapolis, "soul, R&B, hip-hop, rock, reggae, and funk" artist, SonnyBoy (and his band) earned powerful praise from Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the best unsigned bands in the city. With that small boost of confidence he moved out to the big apple, where he's released four albums on his self-owned label, ArtSoul Entertainment. As the new single off his upcoming album, The BarFly Theory, this remake of the hit Culture Club song, "Time (Clock of the Heart)," features a sound hard to define in one genre, but is without a doubt soulful (and lacking the 80s-style synthesizer).
The innovative album that combines jazz, folk, and world music with the enduring foundations of classical music will hit shelves August 17th via Heads Up International, a division of Concord Music Group. Chamber Music Society features the legendary Milton Nascimento, pianist Leo Genovese, and vocalist Gretchen Parlato, among others.

"Whether exploding into vocalese or making her bass solo sound like a horn, she’s a spark plug who dances as she grooves through a funked-up and rocked-out repertoire." — Billboard "Faces to Watch"
"Esperanza has got a lot: accomplished jazz improvisation, funk, scat singing, Brazilian vernacular rhythm and vocals in English, Portuguese and Spanish. At its center is a female bassist, singer and bandleader, one whose talent is beyond question." — New York Times
