Most of you may know by now that Diplo teased himself making beats in his Tesla. He released that video via his Instagram, and you can view it here. He really proves to us that you don’t need an expensive studio to make great music. You just need an expensive car.
He used TRAX, a digital audio workstation (DAW) that Tesla offers as one of its software updates. Is there anything else that this car cannot do? If you don’t recognize the beat, it’s actually the beat of his Silk City’s single ‘New Love‘ with Mark Ronson and Ellie Goulding.
Owners that have had Teslas since 2019 can access this software. Though, now it has expanded capabilities just not as advanced as Ableton or Logic Pro. Still, it can be a great icebreaker or neat trick to whip out while taking long drives and such. Made to perfectly create sounds and beats from the driver’s seat, have fun with this!
As for the song, it’s a funky and soulful track with Ellie’s sweet vocals on deck. It’s great to see her back and collaborating with another EDM artist. We cannot forget ‘Sweet Nothing’ with Calvin Harris, as that takes us back to the good ol’ days. Silk City could possibly be making a comeback this year, and this single could foreshadow that.
The song addresses embracing one’s true self with lyrics like ‘Didn’t always like myself, didn’t always get it right’. It teaches us to let go, not overthink, and abandon any doubt you may have about your identity. We gladly welcome back disco, house, and soul for this collective and eagerly await what’s next. Listen to ‘New Love’ now below and stream it here.
