Top 10 Dillon Francis Songs
Even if you didn't know his music, if you're on Twitter or Instagram, you've probably seen his face. Dillon Francis has become known as much for his antics on social media than he has for his music. He's gained the reputation as EDM's class clown, and for good reason. He's always posting hilarious vines, videos, tweets and more — anything to keep his fans entertained, something he does an excellent job at.
As these fans do know, however, his music kicks ass. It's the reason he's a commodity of the world's biggest EDM festivals and why he's entered the top tier of dance music artists. He led the way for the moombahton explosion a few years ago, and he's been steadily on the rise ever since. Having released his debut album, Money Sucks, Friends Rule, he has also expanded the boundaries of his sound, showing that he has mainstream appeal as well.
Now, the dance music world is waiting in anticipation as he get sets to release a new moombahton EP. As we sit and wait for new music, we're recounting our favorite tracks. Check out our selections for the top 10 songs from Dillon Francis, and stream them in the playlist above.
No list of Dillon Francis' top songs would be complete without this one — "IDGAFOS" is a mantra that Dillon Francis and his fans are proud to stand by. In case you don't know, it stands for "I don't give a f--- or s---." It's bright melody always gets crowds rejoicing when Dillon plays this one out. It's a classic. This VIP version of the track comes with chaotic breakdowns for even more awesomeness.
Taken from his debut LP Money Sucks, Friends Rule, which was released via Columbia Records, "Not Butter" is a stand-out track from the release, bringing the kind of heavy, energetic sound that first made him famous. Even with a more pop-oriented sound on the album, Dillon showed he was still capable of bringing moombahton heaters.
Speaking of moombahton heaters, "Bootleg Fireworks (Burning Up)" certainly falls under that category. It's infectious vocal sample is one that every Dillon Francis fan recognizes. The track is one of the finest examples of Dillon's production ability with its complex layering and switch-up drop, while further establishing a sound that is truly his own.
This is another track from Money Sucks, Friends Rule that marks one of the album's highlights. The up and down pitching of the track's vocal sample give it a fun feel, while the drop (which is appropriately preceded by the vocals "let's f---ing lose it") is as addicting as they come. The track also earned a hilarious lyric video from PizzaSlime, which informed its viewers on little factoids about Dillon that you may or may not already know, such as “Dillon Francis pees sitting down” and “Dillon Francis s---s the bed.”
This track was another easy call for inclusion on our top Dillon Francis songs list. The artwork for "Masta Blasta 2.0" appropriately reads "moombahton 4ever." As far as the genre is concerned, this revamped version is moombahton at its finest. This is why you should be excited for Dillon Francis' forthcoming moombahton EP. "Masta Blasta" also received a trap makeover in the track's "Rebirth" — something that's also worth a listen.
"Get Low" sees the combination of two of the biggest stars in EDM out right now — Dillon Francis and DJ Snake. Anyone who has seen either of them live recently has experienced where they involve the crowd while playing the track, making everyone, whether it be at a club or a major festival (like this year's Ultra Music Festival), get low to the ground before everyone jumps back up for the drop. It's certainly a fan-favorite track, not for just Dillon and DJ Snake, but for the EDM scene as a whole. The track was also featured on the soundtrack for the film Fast & Furious 7, bringing even more attention the single from Dillon's debut album.
His collaboration with DJ Snake is not the only big name collaboration on Dillon Francis' resume. He also combined with Kill The Noise for the appropriately titled track, "Dill The Noise." The track is a hard-hitting, perfect fusion of both artists sounds and styles. At the time of its release in 2012, it hinted at what both artists would accomplish throughout their careers. Now, both artists have established themselves as major players in the game, and this track is still as enjoyable as it ever was. "Dill The Noise" is featured on Dillon Francis' Something, Something, Awesome EP.
Dillon Francis' remix of Passion Pit's "Carried Away" is one of the most impressive tracks he has ever put out. It brings high-energy, fine production and a unique sound that is hard to classify to any particular genre. It is a track that Dillon keeps in his live repertoire to blow away crowds with, and it works every time. What's more is the track is also available as a free download on its Soundcloud page.
If you catch Dillon Francis live, you're guaranteed to hear this track. "We Make It Bounce" is a collaboration from Dillon and Major Lazer, that combines the hard-hitting moombahton sounds of Dillon Francis with the famous dancehall flavor of Major Lazer. It's a track that will always make crowds bounce, of course.
In November of 2011 when this track was released, it was Dillon Francis' favorite remix he had ever made. That may have changed now, but fans still remember this one well. It landed Dillon an official release on Ultra Music, opening the four-track remix EP of the collaboration from Steve Aoki and Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo. It was, and still is, a most impressive production from Dillon Francis, and a must-include addition to our top Dillon Francis songs list.
