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!
You know, living in New York is one thing. But experiencing New Year's Eve in New York is another thing. You have the iconic ball drop in Times Square, along with parties going on in the most exclusive nightclubs and lounges and then you have...Webster Hall. Dubbed as "America's first nightclub," the multi-level venue has been home to parties for the past 127 years.
The superstructure is known for it's epic concerts featuring world renowned DJs, local talent and top artists. The New Year's Eve Ball 2013 will have a jam packed line up uncluding Tommy Trash behind the decks for after hours as celebrants party it up in 2013. In typical fashion on midnight it's only right to have a champagne toast, however, Webster has a little tradition of its own. Once the clock strikes midnight, a massive balloon drop infultrates the entire main room of Webster Hall! It's easily known as "the largest balloon drop in the free world." Over 100,000 balloons fall upon those in attendance and it's seriously one crazy scene! New York nightlife is just filled with surprises you may never even know about but now you know about this one so it's a must to experience it at least once! For more information and tickets visit here.
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.

"Tomahawk Technique", Sean Paul's fifth studio album has been internationally chart-topping on the other side of the pond since January, peaking at #3 in Switzerland. With its September debut on the horizon in the U.S. the dancehall legend recently stated in an interview with Billboard magazine, that he wanted to take a breath before re-introducing himself to his beloved western fans. Ditching his signature braids for a modern Mohawk and velvet rope aesthetic, Sean Paul's new album seeks to revolutionize reggae and dancehall in exchange for a wider audience. Despite his past success and a sizable following, prior to "Tomahawk Technique" Sean Paul had somewhat of a niche appeal, mainly attracting devout fans of Reggae/Dancehall while influencing hip-hop circles.
TUESDAY, MAY 29th
