London DJ and producer to the stars Mark Ronson chose the BBC’s former Television Centre to launch his new album, Uptown Special, on Friday night (January 23).
The 39-year-old musician invited his parents Laurence and Michele, wife Josephine de la Baume, grime artist Dizzee Rascal and former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger – along with a few hundred of his closest friends – to party the night away at the Wood Lane studios.
Arriving in White City dressed in a black print shirt, grey flair trousers and white and black loafers, the chart-topping star took the massive media attention in stride, before later manning the decks in the DJ booth.
Ronson’s new album, released in early January, is dedicated to the late singer Amy Winehouse.
Television Centre was the headquarters of the BBC from 1960 to 2013. It is now being redeveloped with its famous forecourt being remodelled with new shops, a cinema, gym, restaurants and cafes.
When finished, the site will be opened up to the public for the first time with access through to Hammersmith Park.
