Diplo and Mark Ronson Team Up With Desiigner and GoldLink for Their New Single, “Loud.”

“‘Only Can Get Better,’ is lustrous reverb-heavy disco with echoes of garage music — a little Daft Punk, a little Armand Van Helden. Ecstatic but controlled.” – New York Times
“[On ‘Feel About You’] the producers build a towering, multi-tiered groove under Mapei’s soulful croon, mingling disco strings with layered electronic beats and marimba-tinged synths.” – Rolling Stone
“Summery, infectious disco-house…” – Stereogum
“Imagine if Michael Jordan and LeBron James got the chance to play on the same team in their primes. That’s essentially what we’re looking at with the union of Mark Ronson and Diplo and the launch of their new vintage club fare-inspired collaboration, Silk City.” – Dancing Astronaut
“It should come as no surprise to anyone that the first track from Diplo and Mark Ronson‘s new collaboration Silk City absolutely bangs. ‘Only Can Get Better’ is the kind of summery house hit that immediately transports you to a tropical beach party, giant cocktail in hand, or a clammy Ibiza club where strangers become best friends.” – NME


Diplo and Mark Ronson have shared the latest track from their collaborative project Silk City – listen to “Loud” featuring GoldLink and Desiigner here. The song premiered as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1 on Apple Music today and is available everywhere now via Columbia Records.


“Loud” follows the duo’s previously released tracks “Only Can Get Better” with Daniel Merriweather and “Feel About You” featuring Mapei. Silk City made their festival debut at Governor’s Ball in June and will headline the U.K.’s Bestival on August 3. Diplo and Ronson will also perform together at the Treasure Island Music Festival in Oakland, California on Saturday October 13.


Diplo, born Wes Pentz, and Ronson named Silk City for the Philadelphia institution where they first met in the early 2000s. Longtime friends, the project is the two multi-platinum, Grammy-winning producers’ first official collaboration.
