Bromance has blossomed between genre-blending dance producer Diplo and “Uptown Funk” music man Mark Ronson: The pair will debut as Silk City at Governor’s Ball festival in New York City in June 2018.
The DJ/producers first teased that they were working together last summer when Diplo told GQ he and Ronson were working on a disco album. We have yet to hear any of this music or see a release date, but those attending the New York festival will be able to hear the duo’s work in person.
The two have been publicly friendly at least since summer of 2016. Ronson tweeted a pic of Diplo asking where the Mad Decent label head was at, to which Diplo replied, “i learned my lesson to never hang out with you in ibiza unless i want to live in a deep in the hills where Uber will never go,” which you can see below. Sounds like this music should be a serious party.
Silk City joins headliners Eminem, Jack White, Travis Scott, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and more at Gov Ball in NYC from June 1 to 3. Tickets are on sale now via Gov Ball online.
