Silk City is the new project from super star dj’s/producers Diplo and Mark Ronson, they pay homage to some of the greatest dance music cities Chicago, London, Paris and Detroit bringing some serious disco/house vibes.

“Mark Ronson & I met as djs 20yrs ago & our paths have taken us everywhere since. It is great to get back together & make music..”– Diplo

Our old comrade Nick Catchdubs (yeah, one of the founders of NYC label Fool’s Gold Records and all around amazing fella) recently released his single “UFO Style”, and it’s an immediately hypnotizing array of cut-up beats, chopped vocals and buzzing synths.

“I love old records but have no interest in making retro songs. I’m energized by the spirit of New York you hear in Malcolm McLaren’s “Duck Rock” and Jive Ryhythm Trax, comic books and rave flyers, late night radio tapes and shitty drum machines… to Xerox that feeling would be boring. But putting my own spin on those inspirations is crazy exciting! ‘UFO Style’ is me wondering what it would sound like if The Orb made music for subway dancers. Please play it on a good system.”

Malmö duo Aura Oyasumi recently released the “Golden Shiva” single via Swedish label Hybris and they also dropped the Olle Enqvist directed visuals for the track. “Golden Shiva” is a sweeping and contagious hip-hop track dealing with the struggles of a relationship.
