I’ve been infected! The moombahton bite is the most contagious, and it’s spreading faster than a fire in a field of Fergie vinyls. Dillon Francis should be a household name at this point, especially in the spect of this blog. As moombahton makes its way into the libraries of those eager for what’s next, Dillon sits comfortably at the throne. Setting the bar for anything and everything that is and will be moombah. His bass lines are rumbling. So easy to get up and bounce to. A nonstop combo of dutch house, snares and bass kicks with a Latin spice that leaves you refusing an antidote. He’s remixed the likes of Calvin Harris, CSS, Chase & Status, DJ Fresh and more. Supported by Diplo and is pretty much all Mad Decent has going for them right now (judging by their first compilation), so you know this guy is here to play.
The best part is this dudes consistency. He releases remixes and original pieces almost weekly. You’d bet with a heap of tracks, a few of them would seem rushed or incomplete, but nay! Dillon continues to surprise me. His talents extend past moombahton and begin with his dubstep origins, where he thought he found his niche. He has this keen ability to use his sounds so effectively with everything and doesn’t seem to repeat himself. I’ve never followed a DJ that puts out remixes and originals across genres at the level that he has. He has some serious talent that needs to be acknowledged AND a live show to match! I’ve seen him twice the past couple weeks, and I’m here to confirm that Dillon Francis throws down in all realms. Pick this ish up before the bro down the street has this bumping out of his portable Budweiser stereo system. The future of electronic music is here everyone!
Here are some of my favorite tracks from him. Most are songs that I’ve showed to people to try to get them into moombahton. Let me just say that I have a very high success rate haha Peep his soundcloud for the rest.

This EP was released for free because Dillon couldn’t get all the samples they used approved. He made it with Cory Enemy, his mentor and part of the reason Dillon is who he is. All.Fo.Free
