One of the first acts I was enamored with when I decided to seek out music beyond the realm of hip-hop. Of course, the first track I heard Ms. Winehouse on was the “You Know I’m No Good” remix featuring Ghostface Killah. Mark Ronson and Winehouse essentially jump started the retro-pop/soul movement and paved the way for a number of acts (Duffy, Adele, Kate Nash, etc). Ronson had a particularly touching tweet yesterday that said:
she was my musical soulmate & like a sister to me. this is one of the saddest days of my life
Truly a talented woman who had some demons she just couldn’t shake. R.I.P. Amy Winehouse.
Stream a funky Organized Noize remix of “Tears Dry On Their Own” and M.I.A.’s tribute track “27”. Its truly insane when you look at the list of artists who passed at 27.
