GPWW 7/12/10: Worldwide Family Mixtape – Rockwell

This week, Gilles Peterson Worldwide features North London DJ and producer Rockwell. In classic GPWW style, Gilles also brings it with a wide ranging mix of music from around the world, including the up-and-coming jazz singer Gregory Porter who we’ve been going on about, Anito O Day, P.E. Hewitt Jazz Ensemble, and a dub remix of a Michael Jackson‘s “La La Means I Love You.” The later part of the show features a mix by Rockwell, including some of his originals and some remixes. This might be the first GPWW show ever to feature a Cash Money Record (but it’s a Rockwell remix of course).

Mark Ronson Performs with The Business International & Surprise Guest on BBC

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/CrD5hDLyOZI" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

We’ve seen the original-nintendostylee music videos coming from Mark Ronson lately, and we’re all patiently waiting for his September release, Record Collection. Meanwhile, Tuesday night in London, Ronson was promoting the album with new band The Business International. Later in the performance, to the delight of the crowd, he was joined by his infamous collaborator Amy Winehouse. But audiences were let down when Amy only sang one song, for the encore. And when she did, she forgot the words.

Trainwrecks aside, Mark Ronson the producer is working in top form, and the new album features Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears, Boy George and Q-Tip. So when September rolls around, remember to pick up Record Collection.
