Both Mark Ronson and Diplo are no strangers to working with countless other artists — so it’ll come as no surprise that the two super producers have been in the studio together working on a new collaborative project called Silk City.
Understandably, details are still a bit thin on the ground but according to Pitchfork the duo have been working on a disco album together.
Major Lazer are giving away a brand-new track, ‘Go Dung’, featuring Trinidad and Tobago outfit Kes, as a free download via the group’s Soundcloud page.
The track follows hot on the heels of Major Lazer’s new documentary film, ‘Give Me The Future', which followed the trio in the lead up to their spontaneous 2016 concert in Cuba’s capital Havana which attracted over 500,000 people.
Major Lazer's latest single 'Buscanda Huellas' has been given the video treatment as Jillionaire and J Balvin take to the streets looking for love and some fresh dance moves.
Interestingly, Major Lazer's Diplo and Walshy Fire are nowhere to be seen in the video, nor is Sean Paul who also featured on the track.
'Buscando Huellas' is the fifth single from the trio's collaborative-heavy EP, 'Know No Better', which the trio released instead of a new album.
Diplo offered major support of Rihanna during a recent interview. Following April reports of a minor dispute with the songstress, Diplo said of Rihanna: “She's the truest artist that we have in this era right now.”
The cosign arrived while the DJ was discussing his Give Me Future biography with Viceland’s Desus & Mero. The film gives viewers behind-the-scenes insights into the event which saw Diplo and the rest of Major Lazer playing in front of 450,000 Cubans.
Diplo has made some explosive comments about EDM and DJ culture in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, saying: “I know I'm a poseur pushing buttons onstage!”
Major Lazer have shared the brand new video for ‘Particula’ from the ‘Know No Better’ EP. You can watch it below.
The new video features a number of African artists including Nasty C and DJ Maphorisa as well as Nigerian rapper Ice Prince.
The video for Major Lazer’s ‘Particula’ was shot and directed by South African filmmaker Adriaan Louw.
