This one goes out to all the dancers in the world. Silk City, the new collaboration from Diplo and Mark Ronson, celebrates the sounds and energies of the scene’s greatest cities, and the music video for debut single “Only Can Get Better,” featuring Daniel Merriweather, explores the flashy grit of the Big Apple.
Silk City had its first officially-booked performance in New York City at the recent Governor’s Ball festival. The clip features shots from that set as well as unannounced club sets that helped build the hype. Shaky shots set in layers of low resolution give the video the same retro-funk quality of the track itself.
The future of Silk City is unclear. The pair recorded a mix in May featuring Silk City edits, but no other original songs. No further dates have been announced. Stay tuned for more information, and check out the music video for “Only Can Get Better” below.
