Diplo and Mark Ronson premiere the first track from their collaborative project Silk Citytoday: listen to “Only Can Get Better” featuring Daniel Merriweather here, out now on Columbia Records.
The new music follows the duo’s surprise appearances last week in Los Angeles and at Electric Daisy Carnival’s Wide Awake Art Car this weekend. Silk City will make their festival debut next weekend at the Governors Ball Music Festival in New York—playing the Bacardi Stage at 8:00 p.m. Saturday, June 2—and will headline the U.K.’s Bestival in August.
Diplo, born Wes Pentz, and Ronson named Silk City for the Philadelphia institution where they first deejayed together in the early 2000s. Longtime friends, the project is the two multi-platinum, Grammy-winning producers’ first official collaboration. Further music from Silk City is imminent.
