Dillon Francis has been killing it on his remixes lately. Recently, he put his touch on NERVO and Nicky Romero's "Like Home" and now he's just released his remix for Dada Life's "So Young So High" out today on Beatport.
Dill take's the original electro poppy version and throws in his version of trap snares and heavy bass drums. While we can't say we love it just yet we're excited to hear this when Dill throws down back to back shows at Webster Hall in NYC this weekend on Saturday, January 19 and Sunday, January 20. The song has a lot of potential so we're curious to see the reactions at Webster this weekend and who knows, maybe Mr. IDGAFOS will drop some new, original material! Tickets are still avail for the Sunday night show here.
Listen to the remix of "So Young So High" below and let the dance party commence!
The 24-year-old LA native and what he describes as "Moombahton, Luvstep, and Everything In-Between" DJ/Producer, Dillon Francis is a name that has noisily broken out onto the dance music scene and continues to rise as our favorite funny guy. If your looking for some DJ Self Defense techniques from Dill himself or embracing his sharp sounds that exceed the word "moombahton" in every way possible, it'll be clear from the start that this guy is changing the Moombah and Dubstep game.
If you know Dillon Francis then you know he's pretty out there and doesn't give a f*ck or sh*t what you think about his wild antics and that's why he's just...awesome. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Dill made an announcement to his fans via newsletter that he will be donating all of the proceeds from his show at Webster Hall this Friday, Nov. 9 to the people affected by Hurricane Sandy while on his Wet & Reckless Tour.

Dillon Francis is calling on all of his fans to get Wet & Reckless with him. After a number of releases on some of the most well-known US labels, the DJ/producer and cat enthusiast has just announced a 25-date US Tour. Joining Francis on his upcoming "Wet & Reckless" tour are Flosstradamus, Clockwork, and Baauer. The tour will run through mid-November with stops in NYC, Philly, and Miami.
Francis has been thriving in the electronic dance music scene with his moombahton magic. Under the wing of Diplo, he's released his music on labels like Skrillex's OWSLA, Diplo's Mad Decent, and A-Trak's Fool's gold. He's also recently had an opening run for dubstep giants, Nero.
It’s a big summer for Diplo. After gracing us with his bulletproof moombahton-massive EP “Express Yourself” at the beginning of June, the brilliantly-dynamic producer is ready to show off his skills live at his recently announced five-stop “Mad Decent Block Party” tour.
Spanning the country and even dipping into Toronto for a day, each Block Party will feature a full day of performances from Mad Decent’s stellar roster of artists (such as Dillon Francis, Major Lazer, Zeds Dead and more). The all-ages event will also offer food and activities, and is ABSOLUTELY FREE.
The dubstep sub-genre, once a medium for fresh minds creating new sounds and beats, has become a place for muddled and overused womps drowning in Modern Talking Skrillex scratches. Producers have taken a backseat when it comes to originality, riding the coattails of every new sound until they become bland and boring. Thankfully, this lackadaisical epidemic hasn’t swept over the entire genre, leaving a select few originators to take the lead on worthwhile beats. Dillion Francis, the moombahton meets dubstep master, is a true innovator in the electronic realm and will be touring Florida with his masterfully-crafted sounds this summer.
EDM lovers are in for a real treat for the next few months. A plethora of electro fests are lined up and ready for the taking. While we wait for dates and lineups to be announced for post-June festivals, peep these April-June events that are confirmed, with tickets on sale now!

We know what you're thinking.
We could come up with a lot of puns on this tour's name, but we will spare you the perverted immaturity. Instead, we will stick to single music reference from a legend who arguably helped spawn these devilish electronica sub-genres, Dubstep and Electro.
