If you somehow missed out on Dillon Francis’ collaboration with soulful British artist Will Heard despite it crushing it from the get go and receiving a ton of attention, this cheeky new video for Anywhere is your gateway to dance music heaven. As expected, any video that involves DF isn’t quite “serious”. The producer stars in his own video as an extension of odd and bizarre high fashion outfits. For all the wildly bombastic jams that Dillon Francis has shaken the earth with, Anywhere is one of his most sleekly melodic, calmly entrancing tracks, and its such a silky rapturous, hooking rhapsodic jam at that. Anywhere is available for purchase from iTunes.

Disclosure, Sam Smith, and Dillon Francis all rolled up in one? Say it isn’t so! But it’s true! Dillon Francis returns with a majestic remix of Disclosure’s Omen, which of course, features the buttery sweet vocals of world adored Sam. Dillon Francis goes for a richly layered future bass and house sound on this one, staying true to Disclosure’s signature snazzy sound but giving the track a spicy jolt. This “omen” is a good one, no doubt. It foreshadows some euphoric dancing in the near future, if not right now. Am I right? The DF remix gets a release later this week.

A Dillon Francis remix of Madeon can only mean one thing: it’s time to buckle in and hang on tight. You can’t expect nothing less than brain jolting with something as massive as a remix that combines electro house wizard Madeon with moombahton savant Dillon Francis. DF takes Madeon’s Imperium and bleeds those two genres together in a fine, cinematic balance of xylophone bridges, regal synths, and dirty drops. The Imperium remix will be out soon on August 28th.

In case you haven’t heard, trop house king Kygo teamed up with EDM production star Dillon Francis on a new treat. Coming Over also features vocals by emerging Austraian talent James Hersey, so it’s really quite the spectacular mosaic of hot talent. Coming Over, which debuted on Dancing Astronaut earlier today, is a mellow yet emotional ride, with ample doses of Kygo’s summery style. It’s a surprisingly laid back jam for DF, with brief interludes of rousing electro, but then again, DF is one versatile producer. And of course, James Hersey’s satin crooning is always a rousing, welcome treat. The ace collaboration was given away on USB sticks at Kygo’s Coachella set this past weekend, thrown into the crowd randomly.

Hey, kids, it’s Dillon Francis’ When We Were Young, which features Chain Gang Of 1974, remixed by Toronto trap act Grandtheft. Honestly, can you expect anything less than epic and massive on this combo? The original is already one of my favorite Dillon Francis tunes to come along in awhile, due to its melodious, infectious qualities, and the guest stint by Chain Gang, who I’m very fond of. Grandtheft takes a surprisingly restrained approach on the remix, leaving its mellifluous angles untouched, adding in balanced trap elements at the right moments. The end result is a spine tingling, chill inducing feel good track, one that makes my eyes sparkle with delight. This is magnificent.

Ah, yes, Dillon Francis is at it again, and in his own words, this might be the happiest remix he’s ever made in his life. Well, Australian band Strange Talk’s Morning Sun (and many of their other songs) are already some of the most high flying, luminous tunes of recent time. Imagine amping that up even more, and who else should do that, but DIllon Francis? If you need a pick me up, don’t pass up on this remix. If you need a smile, don’t pass up on this remix. Hell, this makes me want to toss tacos and cats all over the place in wild joy (Dillon fans get it, right?).

This one might be divisive for some, as I seem to be noticing on the internet, but I figured I’d finish up for the moment with the super fun and bouncy new Dillon Francis, as I tend to like to wrap things up with something joyful and buoyant. We Make It Bounce is a massive electronic rager that features big gun Major Lazer and Stylo G, whose involvement on the tune makes me automatically think of Clean Bandit. Together, they make it bounce. A lot. Like.. really, a lot.
