Silk City was one of the most unexpected new side projects to hit the EDM scene this year. The unlikely duo of Diplo and Mark Ronson (of ‘Uptown Funk' Fame) got together and decided to breath new life into the softer side of dance music. After two singles that were critically acclaimed, the duo took the stage for the first time at New York's Governor's Ball 2018.

While initially there seemed to be a little bit of awkwardness between the guys, sharing decks and a stage for the first time together, they really started to flow with each other. I will say there were a few times where it appeared that Diplo had to explain things to Mark, the guys laid down a chilled out and unexpected set. The crowd took a little bit to warm up to the new more subtle style, by the end they were cheering and dancing as hard as ever.

Silk City also dropped a little ID in the midst of their set which one fan captured and uploaded to Youtube. Check it out below!
