Welcome to Silk City: Diplo and Mark Ronson debut new disco project with ‘Only Can Get Better’

This post was originally published on this site

Imagine if Michael Jordan and LeBron James got the chance to play on the same team in their primes. That’s essentially what we’re looking at with the union of Mark Ronson and Diplo and the launch of their new vintage club fare-inspired collaboration, Silk City. We’re experiencing a team up of epic proportions — two modern pop titans, arguably today’s most in-demand producers, joining their hit-making sensibilities to create vibrant, infectious disco cuts. What a time. Officially debuting the Silk City project, Diplo and Ronson have shared “Only Can Get Better,” featuring Australian vocalist Daniel Merriweather — and damned if it isn’t an absolute bop.

Silk City’s first recorded offering comes a few weeks ahead of their live debut at Governor’s Ball in New York in June. Ronson and Diplo have already confirmed upcoming material with Dua Lipa, and with credentials between them that include Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Amy Winehouse to name a few, the pair likely have a cast of emerging pop stars at the ready for a range of upcoming products. Silk City’s approachable, palatable brand of disco shines on “Only Can Get Better,” without really having a nostalgia card to play. Just based on the sheer ingenuity of two of today’s most profilic producers, Silk City is already positioned to potentially ride a swelling disco resurgence in 2018.

Diplo and Mark Ronson to debut disco oriented ‘Silk City’ project at Governor’s Ball Music Festival

The fabric of Diplo’s next endeavor is that of a ‘silken’ kind.

That Diplo’s to go disco is hardly a secret — the electronic veteran disclosed in a GQ interview earlier in the year that he and youth pal, Mark Ronson were engaged on a collaborative disco flavored effort. “…me and Mark are doing a collab album,” Diplo stated, “You know the album I did with Skrillex, Jack Ü? Me and Mark are trying to do something with disco music.”

Well move over, Jack Ü; the Diplo and Ronson pairing is poised to sparkle with the fervor of a disco ball come June. The new duo is set to debut their “Silk City” project at the eighth edition of New York’s Governor’s Ball Music Festival. While further information regarding Diplo and Ronson’s groovy revival of the ‘70s sound currently remains scant, the event booking signals that the two have got something special hidden up their bell sleeves, something that just might inspire the Randall’s Island Park assembled crowds to do the Hustle.
