Mark Ronson And Diplo Team Up With Dua Lipa For New Silk City Single Electricity

Thursday, 06 September 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Mark Ronson and Diplo have teamed up with Dua Lipa for their new Silk City single.

Electricity follows up their collaboration with Desiigner and GoldLink on Loud and Only Can Get Better with Daniel Merriweather.

The DJ and production duo had help writing the track from Diana Gordon, who co-wrote a number of songs on Beyoncé's 'Lemonade' LP, Romy from the XX and Lipa. They began work on it last summer and finally recorded it this spring. 

As expected, it's a perfect blend of pop and dance music, while also incorporating Ronson's love of R&B. The video, meanwhile, was directed by Bradley and Pablo and sees the vocalist enjoying a party in an apartment while Diplo and Ronson get stuck in an elevator.

Technical And Topical: Black Peaks' Guitarist Joe Gosney Discusses 'All That Divides'
Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.
Antarctigo Vespucci Rides Again: Chris Farren and Jeff Rosenstock Get The Band Back Together

But do Chris Farren and Jeff Rosenstock know that Chris Farren and Jeff Rosenstock are friends? “Hey,” Farren says from the stage at Bristol’s Exchange. “If you’re excited for Jeff Rosenstock, let me hear you say...‘CHRIS FARREN!’” When Rosenstock’s guitar packs up mid-set, his attempts to borrow Farren’s are met with silence until a member of his band suggests Tweeting him. Yeah, that’d probably do it, Jeff nods.
Out Of The Shade: Doyle Bramhall II Steps Into The Limelight
Thu 11 Oct 2018
There won’t be many musicians with an address book as impressive as Doyle Bramhall II’s. From Elton John and Roger Waters to Sheryl Crow and Alain Toussaint, not to mention his position as Eric Clapton’s right-hand man for nearly two decades, the Texan born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has often been the go-to collaborator for some of the greatest names in the business. Such a role inevitably meant putting his own career on hold, but with the release of ‘Shades’ – his second solo album in two years - he’s finally taking centre stage.
Boygenius: The Badass Supergroup We've All Been Waiting For
Wed 10 Oct 2018
Photo: Lera Pentelute Earlier this summer, three like-minded indie-rock musicians began teasing their fans. Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus were pictured together, draped moodily on a sofa. Looking suspiciously like the sleeve image from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled bow, the word ‘Boygenius’ ran below them, as well as that all-important stamp of approval from Matador Records. Speculation bubbled. Rumours were whispered.
