It there’s a DJ who can play it all, it’s definitely Diplo. Whether you see his name on an original production or in the mix, you know you’re in for some quality tuneage. Now, we’re finally hearing and his brand new concept come alive with this Silk City “Essential Mix” (not to be confused with the BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix).


The side project with Mark Ronson takes on a groovy feel and a deep house sound with a whole lot of flavor. Expect some unexpected moments, unless you peep the tracklist first, which kicks off with their new single “Only Can Get Better” and boasts some other ridiculously smooth, never-before-heard Silk City special remixes.

Silk City takes that same deep, groovy approach as they play out everyone from Kelis to Drake, Missy Elliott to Tribe Called Quest, Tchami to Flosstradamus and everything in between. From start to finish, this essential mix is nothing but feel good, danceable beats with a side of weird. But, we mean that in the best possible way.

This is the mix that the dancing queens in all of us truly needed! Enjoy!
