If you have listened to any form of dance music over the last few years, you have likely heard a Dillion Francis song. From Moombahton and trap to pop singles with the like of Calvin Harris. The guys seem to be able to do all ranges of music. While we can’t confirm that our suspicions are correct, it would appear that he is looking to add another element to his ever-growing talents and that is TV producer and actor. After featuring in the Vice “What Would Diplo Do,” it appears that he is releasing his own show. In support of the press around that show and his second album with Def Jams, he has dropped this Moombahton Mix via iTunes.
We hope you enjoy.
Dillon Francis has already made a name for himself with his groundbreaking remixes, in-demand production mastery, and cutting-edge videos. Now, the artist/producer/remixer/DJ is about to release his long awaited debut album, Money Sucks, Friends Rule on Columbia Records. First recognized for helping to bring the tribal dance movement Moombahton to the forefront, he’s scattered the dance music landscape with numerous influential EPs thus far, but it’s the effervescent debut album that the music world has been patiently waiting for. Tracks include “Get Low” with DJ Snake, the anthemic “Love in the Middle of a Firefight” featuring Brendon Urie (from Panic! At The Disco), “When We Were Young” featuring Sultan + Ned Shepard VS Chain Gang of 1974, “We Make It Bounce” featuring Major Lazer & Stylo G, “Set Me Free” featuring producer/DJ Martin Garrix, and the gritty, mind-blowing “All That” featuring Twista and The Rejectz. Dillon’s journey was full of pit-stops. First he attended art school, then he became a ‘trainee’ in a photography studio where he realized, “I didn’t want to do that – I wanted to play and make music, kind of knowing I was going to have to ‘make’ the music I wanted to hear.” After spending some time in Atlanta interning for Cory Enemy to get to know the dance music scene, he would move back to LA and hole up in the back house of his parents’ place, getting to know his Ableton Live, 24/7. Since then, he has been able to create music, tour the globe, and now appears to be tackling TV. Well done sir, well done.
