Diplo is no stranger to side projects. The man works with more artists we can even count and has launched a couple new side projects just this year, including his Silk City collaboration with Mark Ronson. The super producers have just put out another song "Feel About You" under their joint moniker, this time featuring the lush vocals of female vocalist Mapei. They take things in a lighthearted house direction on this summer-ready song that will surely get stuck in your head. Enjoy!
Dirtybird’s bi-annual, summer camp themed, boutique music festival, Dirtybird Campout, has just announced their lineup for their West Coast edition this year. The lineup features over 50 different artists, with some bigger names than we’re used to seeing on a DBC lineup like: Gorgon City, Chris Lake, and Mark Ronson.
Of course, the Dirtybird crew will be in full force, bringing out the cream of their crop with Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, Fisher, Walker & Royce, Shiba San, OMNOM, Catz ‘N Dogz, and more. And as always, there’s a couple wildcards thrown into the mix that you wouldn’t necessarily expect to see at a house music festival. Old school rappers Big Daddy Kane and Slick Rick will be performing this year, which I don't think anyone saw coming.
The festival is to take place from October 5-7, in another brand new location in Northern California: the Modesto Reservoir Campgrounds. Attendees can expect a number of improvements to the festival with the new location, including reservoir water for swimming in, a setting full of shady trees and irrigated land, and a more intimate layout in general.
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!
