Diplo and Mark Ronson debut “Only Can Get Better” (ft. Daniel Merriweather) under their new collaborative project Silk City. Mad Decent co-founder and dancehall master, Diplo is on a roll with new collaborative efforts, branching him into an assortment of music genres. Between his latest track “LSD” with Sia and Labrinth to his April release with hip-hop’s new addition Lil Xan, “Color Blind.”
Diplo’s latest venture is with Grammy-winning and UK Producer, Mark Ronson with the release of “Only Can Get Better”.
If you’re not familiar with Ronson, you probably know him from his hit single “Uptown Funk” with Bruno Mars. Ronson is known for his eclectic genre productions from electronic, funk, pop to hip-hop. The producer duo recreates an old school house vibe in their newest single.
Released under Columbia Records, the track is lightly laced with trancy synths and a funky rhythm that impels a constant groove.
Silk City made two surprise appearances this past month in Los Angeles and at EDCLV’s Wide Awake Car. Their next stop is New York to make their official festival debut on Saturday, June 2nd at Governors Ball Music Festival. Following that, the duo will headline U.K.’s Bestival in August. Longtime friends, Diplo (Wesley Pentz) and Mark Ronson coined the name of their project Silk City, after the Philadelphia venue where they first performed together, in the early 2000s.
