Dillon Francis continues to build an empire.
In style with his random personality, Francis dropped a new track from his heavily-anticipated album on the same day he released a breathtaking remix of “Some Chords” by Deadmau5.
In what many would consider one the most anticipated EDM albums of 2014, samples of Money Sucks, Friends Rule have already begun to please fans and appease the critics. In a collaboration with Brendon Urie, lead singer of Panic! At The Disco, Francis continues to flex his wherewithal for mastering the unusual.
Love in the Middle of a Firefight may have been released yesterday, but plans have been in the works since Francis was in high school. This song proves that there’s nothing wrong with guilty pleasures, especially when that guilty pleasure is Panic! At The Disco. Or maybe Fall Out Boy.
The complete version of Money Sucks, Friends Rule comes out on October 28th. A few tracks on the album have already been released – including collaborations with Major Lazer, Martin Garrix and Sultan + Ned Shepard. Not to mention, his smash-hit with DJ Snake, “Get Low.”
The talent-packed list of artists working on the album with Francis should not only speak to the potential of his upcoming album, but the hype surrounding him in general.
Dillon usually doesn’t make songs about love, but when he does, all you can do is just sit back and enjoy.
“This song was a dream come true to make w/ Brendon Urie from Panic! At The Disco…it’s definitely one of my favorite songs on the album and I’m so happy I finally get to share it with the world!!! I hope this shows you how diverse all of my album is going to be!”
Yesterday, however, Francis also proved why he’s once again one of the best remixers in the game. His rendition of “Some Chords” was released on Mau5trap Records – indicating that everybody in the game (even Joel Zimmerman) wants a piece of Dillon Francis.
After all, his unique perspective on music is something we’re familiar with. As we noted about Porter Robinson a few weeks ago, many artists are beginning to admire and acknowledge how successful Porter’s “dedication to craft” has become. Francis has begun to follow kind of what Porter has been ranting about on Twitter,” according to an interview with Dancing Astronaut. “Hes been really into beautiful music and making things that are enjoyable to listen to and not just for the club. So thats what Ive been doing recently, but also making club songs.
Whatever Francis is doing, he should keep doing. Because from what we’re hearing, Francis keeps doing everything right.
