Mark Ronson compares archery to rapper

Mark Ronson

Mark Ronson says archery sounds like a Lil Wayne song.

The producer has recorded a song in honour of the upcoming London 2012 Olympic Games. He wanted to make it as unusual as possible, so decided to incorporate the sound of some sports into it.

"There's two. We got [Russian sprinter] Kseniya Vdovina's heart rate up to the same tempo as the song and then recorded it with a stethoscope! And also archery sounds. I was like, 'What is the sound of archery?' And then we put all these mics on an archery target so when the arrow hit, it had this really thick boom and it sounded like a bass drum from a Lil Wayne song!" he laughed to Just Pop! magazine.

Mark was thrilled to be asked to record the track by Coca-Cola. However, the practicalities of laying down the music proved a challenge.

"We went to where they train, to record them in a way that could never be done in professional events because of the hazard of having tiny mic wires tied all over them," Mark laughed.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
