Looks Like Diplo & Mark Ronson Are Collaborating On A Disco Music Album

Posted at August 9th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in Dance Music, Entertainment, News

Diplo‘s revealed quite a bit in his recent interview with GQ, including the fact that Rihanna hasn’t ever been on board with his music and thinks it sounds like an airport reggae song. Amongst talk about the burgeoning music scene in Africa and Diplo‘s excessive interest it, another thing he revealed was that an album is in the works with Mark Ronson. They’ve known each other since way back when, and are working on a disco music album together. Read up on the details below.

 

I feel like Mark Ronson’s story has been well told: He was the white kid with real chops as a hip-hop DJ, who would also drop AC/DC songs into his set. Puffy saw him and started hiring him for parties in the Hamptons. The Hollertronix story is related to that, but it hasn’t been documented in the same way.

A hundred percent. Mark was doing similar stuff, and we were all into hip-hop, but we were a little deeper in the music we pulled from. Mark was playing for bottle-service clubs in New York—the beginning of that. We were playing for middle-class kids in Philly. By the way, I’ve known Mark almost since I was in high school. I met him when I first went to Philly. I taught at a school, and he was classmates with my boss. I went to go see him play Allen Iverson‘s birthday party at the Palmer, which is an all-black club. I just thought, This guy is cool. 

Actually, me and Mark are doing a collab album. You know the album I did with Skrillex, Jack Ü? Me and Mark are trying to do something with disco music. It’s something we talked about over the last year. Jack Ü was awesome, but it was very young. I want to do something that feels more my age. I feel like me and Mark can do something more sophisticated.

Much to the disappointment of fans, it looks like Diplo‘s Jack Ü days are most definitely behind him, but we’ll get to see a different disco music side of his. Mark Ronson skyrocketed to fame with his “Uptown Funk” collaboration with Bruno Mars and even performed at the Nh7 Weekender editions in India in 2015. We’re excited to see what this unique pairing comes up with, stay tuned for more.
