While Dillon Francis has sampled a variety of production styles over his career, many remember him for his spastic and energetic moombahton tracks that put him on the map. Now, the Mad Decent protégé turned DJ superstar has released a continuous 15 minute Moombahton Mix as a tribute to the genre on which he built his name.
Dillon Francis reaches to his many past collaborators to fill out this mix, as tracks like “Bun Up The Dance” with Skrillex and “Need You” with NGHTMRE showcase the producer’s skill for making the bouncy and vibrant genre that is moombahton. The DJ and producer continues to show an interest in fusing the worlds of dancehall and electronic music, with tracks like “Never Let You Go,” featuring De La Ghetto, and “Ven,” featuring Arcangel and Quimico Ultra Mega, putting the spotlight on some of the world’s top reggaeton talent.
With a Spanish-language album on the way, Dillon Francis’ movement back into the realm of Caribbean rhythms may cement him as one of the most popular and relevant producers of the time.
