Diplo & Mark Ronson Deliver Incredible “Essential Mix” For Their New Project Silk City

silk city essential mix

Just yesterday, Diplo and Mark Ronson surprised us with the debut single of their brand new collaborative project, Silk City. Diplo had previously stated that this project will be focusing on a disco sound, and after listening to “Only Can Get Better,” we think that they nailed it.

Today, the two Grammy award winning producers have delivered an hour long “Essential Mix” that was posted to Diplo’s SoundCloud. It seems like this new mix aims to lay the groundwork for their new disco vibe. Not only do we have a handful of different edits by Silk City (which are being called “Silk City Specials”), but a bunch of uplifting, jackin’ tunes by artists like Cajmere, Missy Elliot, Masters At Work, and Tchami.

This is the first time we’ve heard Diplo seriously dive into the genre of house, and with the unyielding talents of Mark Ronson, who knows where they’ll go. Either way, we can’t wait to hear more from the new duo. Enjoy!

Josh Pan Shares Diplo & Friends Mix Ft. Unreleased Anderson .Paak Collab + Drops New Song “wait for me” With X&G

Josh Pan has been busy this week. Not only did he drop off a crazy, out of the box track with frequent collaborators X&G, but he also came through with a stellar, one-hour mix for one of our favorite radio shows, Diplo & Friends. Throughout the show he drops massive unreleased collaborations, and it does not disappoint. Anderson .Paak pops in just after the 7 minute mark.

The new song, “wait for me” isn’t trap, it isn’t left field bass music, it’s a straight up rock track.

In the description of the new tune, Josh Pan mentions that it was made in "a living room with X&G". It's unclear who's responsible for each part of the song, considering we haven't seen this side from these producers before. We do however, recognize Josh's vocals, which shine throughout the song. Near the end of the track, it breaks down into a brief, bassy outro that sounds like the Josh Pan and X&G that we’re familiar with. The meat of “wait for me,” though, is huge step outside their comfort zone, and we’re loving the approach.

Make sure you don't sleep on Josh Pan's insane mix for Diplo & Friends either. It's an hour's worth of purely his own music. Among many of our favorite released tracks by, the mix includes a ton of unreleased collabs with artists like Anderson Paak, X&G, Dylan Brady and more. Don't just take our word for it, give the full mix a listen below. Enjoy!
