When you get a sick DJ like Diplo and an ill producer like Mark Ronson together at a diner in Philadelphia, you’ve got a recipe for one of the funkiest house revival groups in modern memory. In two months, Silk City has proven itself a demanding force of the dance world, with a series of groove-a-lacious singles and unstoppable live mixes, and the frenzy shows no signs of slowing.
Today (Aug. 15), Diplo and Ronson share their latest mix, an easygoing, forward-moving experience just short of an hour long, called “Especially 4 U, Vol. 2.” It features killer tracks from Danny Daze, DJ Koze and more, but Silk City fans will go wildest for the pair’s new exclusive edits. There are three “Silk City Specials” on the menu. One mash-up of D’Angelo and Romanthony, one of Post Malone and Patrice Rushen, and an extra saucy edit of Dua Lipa and Drake.
This is disco house brilliance that’ll get old souls moving and new kids falling in love with the style. Close your eyes and time travel to the freer dance floor of your wildest fantasies.
