Superproducer Mark Ronson has teamed up with singer/songwriter Sam Sparro and rapper THEOPHILUS LONDON to form a new band.
The Grammy Award-winning producer, who shot to fame after working on Amy Winehouse's Back To Black, is set to release his second album, The Business, later this year (10).
But Ronson has also been busy recording with his new group - and he's planning to play a string of gigs under the alias of Chauffeur throughout 2010.
London tells BBC 6 music, "I met Mark a year ago. He asked me to come down to his radio show in New York City and we just clicked. He invited me to his house and we just listened to music for like six hours.
"We became friends and started making music together. His new stuff is sounding really amazing, and it’s just been a great, creative friendship. It’s just a click, it’s a mutual thing in the studio with Mark. He’s easy to work with and he knows what he wants to hear, so it was great."
