Mark Ronson - Kuulumiset

@iammarkronson kevin parker is a friend of mine. he’s also one of my favourite music makers of the past twenty years. it can be weird to hang out and be friends with someone whose music you listen to so much. music you might listen to when you’re sad, joyous or just need something to get you through that boring af last 4 mins on the treadmill. and then after all that, you’re just hanging out a couple days later with your mate, Kev. i guess at the end of the day, i make music. i’m around people who make music. some of them have superpowers. whatever and ever, amen etc…. me and kevin were working on some music a few summers ago. There was a dope ass song with @sza we never got to finish (but u can probably find it on the web cause of a stolen hard drive 😟) and a demo called “Laurie”—which had a very very memorable, bittersweet melody with no lyrics only mumbles. and the real moment of glory was a minor to major key modulation in the pre-chorus (which became “and now the tears in your eyes…”) that made my hairs stand up every single time it happened. the genius of kevin parker who channels so much r&b influence in his music, to me, it could have been an 80’s Janet chord change. to him, it’s just what comes out. by the time i realized i was making a heartbreak album, i emailed Kevin and said “hey, are u using this for the new tame album? if not, can i try and finish it?” i had to ask him because when i was making uptown special, there was a cute, comic moment when he sent me a demo to maybe fuck with and then asked for it back a couple weeks later. and that song became “i’m a man”… all good, i was more than happy with “daffodils”. anyway, the melody was so fucking good. the sadness, the triumph, the soul, the emo. i knew i had to turn it into something. but the song had no structure, just a bunch of good parts. as usual, i tried 80 fucking drumbeats til i got a good feel for it. and sat on this demo for a minute… a couple months later, on the way to the airport in NY, i was listening to the radio in z-100, hoping to catch a spin “electricity” (shout out @dualipa, @diplo)—it was just starting to get burn— and “never be the same” came on and i was like “THAT IS OUR VOICE!!!” Kommentoi
