Dillon Francis is known across the world for his laughable shenanigans, being the poster-child of Diplo's Mad Decent Records, and one of the few producers who continuously expands his genre selection to great effect. Following up on his massive performance last year, Mr. Francis graced the WorldWide Stage at this years Ultra Music Festival to deliver a robust collection of music for a captivated audience. Dillon not only kept the crowd entertained with humorous expletive chants, random dolphin effects and pulling off a successfull sit down for his track with DJ Snake "Get Low", but unleashed a fury of unreleased heaters we can only assume will be featured on his upcoming debut artist album. New collab's with Martin Garrix, TJR, Major Lazer, and a fresh remix of Chromeo's "Jealous" were mixed in with Dillon's original tracks during the hour long performance. Stream the set below and be on the look out for Dillon's album set to be released this July via Mad Decent. Enjoy
