Diplo Debuts Silk City Project With Essential Mix

Silk City Essential Mix

Jack U might be gone on hiatus, but Diplo isn’t done with supergroups in the slightest. On the pop front he’s got LSD releasing music, but as an EDM fan you’re probably not loving that project as much. Don’t fret because Diplo‘s Silk City project with Mark Ronson is actually a breath of fresh air just in time for Summer.

In fact Silk City debuted at EDC on one of the art cars, and then released its first single this week. To really drive home the Silk City vibe, Diplo released a Silk City Essential Mix. It’s not a BBC Essential Mix, but the goal is the same. This mix shows off the shimmery Summer house vibe that Diplo and Mark Ronson are going for with this project. It’s like Calvin Harris’ ‘One Kiss’ but taken a step further towards disco/funk.

The mix features tracks from Cajmere, Silk City, Tchami, Mobb Deep, IDs and plenty of reworks and bootlegs from the new duo. Diplo couldn’t have picked a better time to unleash this mix on us because this just might be your Memorial Day Weekend party mix.
