Diplo and Mark Ronson have produced Grammy-winning hits for artists like Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars. Now they’ve joined forces as the duo Silk City, and linked up with GoldLink and Desiigner on their latest single “Loud.”
The song, which was selected as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1, finds the rappers trading verses over the super-producers’ upbeat production.
“Loud” follows Silk City’s “Only Can Get Better” with Daniel Merriweather and “Feel About You” featuring Mapei. Diplo and Ronson, who performed for the first time together at the Governors Ball, will headline the U.K.’s Bestival on Friday (Aug. 3).
Longtime friends, Diplo and Ronson named Silk City after the Philadelphia institution where they first met in the early 2000s. They are now readying their highly-anticipated joint album.
