The latest episode of The FADER Uncovered Season 2, the series in which host Mark Ronson talks with the world’s most impactful musicians, is up now and available for download wherever you listen to podcasts.
On this week's episode Ronson is joined by Pharrell Williams. In the first part of a two part interview, Ronson and Pharrell revisit The Neptunes’ 2002 FADER cover and look back on the breakthrough period of Pharrell’s career, discussing the magic of working with colorful characters including Mystikal, N.O.R.E. and Ludacris. Pharrell also lifts the lid on what it’s like in the studio with Jay-Z and how a refusal to be confined to any one kind of music led him to where he is today. Be sure to join us next week for Part II of the conversation.
Between them, Ronson and Pharrell bring up lots of music across the episode, touching on The Neptunes' breathtaking production work as well as Kraftwerk, George Benson, and house classic "It's Time For The Percolator." To make that all easier to navigate, we’ve dropped all the artists they namecheck into a massive 77-song playlist, which you can check out below.
