LA based producer and TSIS favorite Jauz further cements himself as the American answer to the future house sound, always expanding his productions with every track. His flips of Tiga's "Bugatti" and A$AP Rocky's "Hella Hoes" have become festival anthems and today we get his latest, re-remixing Dillon Francis' flip of "Some Chords" by deadmau5. With that mouthful out of the way, sit back and enjoy the new track!

Mysteryland USA 2015 Lineup Is Out Of Control Featuring Porter Robinson, Diplo, Kygo, Dillon Francis, Madeon and 100 more!Posted in Bangin, Chill, News by nick | Tags: Dillon Francis, Diplo, Kygo, Lineup, Madeon, Mysteryland, Porter Robinson
The incredible folks at ID&T who are responsible for both iconic and globally renown festivals TomorrowLand and TomorrowWorld expanded their first live event Mysteryland to the US last year and it was quite a success. The festival took over the same location as the historic American music festival Woodstock 69' which provided the perfect backdrop to the new festival. The festival will be returning over the weekend of May 23rd – 24th this year.
Just minutes ago festival organizers unleashed the lineup for the 2015 edition of the festival, and man did they step it up for year two.
Headliners include Diplo, Kygo, Dillon Francis, Porter Robinson, Madeon, Robin Schulz, GRiZ, Gramatik, The Martinez Brothers, Netsky and so many others!
This year’s festival also has an exceptionally well-curated lineup featuring a massive spread of genres.
With the likes of tropical wonderkid Kygo headlining the main stage it’s evident that the “Tropical House” explosion is not slowing down anytime soon. Rising stars Bakermat and Klingande are sure to help cement this wave of popularity as well.
Another group making an impact are all of the Electro-Funk/Soul acts like heavyweights Griz and Gramatik holding it down with Manic Focus which are all live acts that are sure to not disappoint.
Most impressive seems to be that American festivals such as Mysteryland are starting to curate lineups that include pioneers in the deep house and tech house genres. For tech house we have the much talked about Ibiza legends The Martinez Brothers headlining the Flying Circus stage on Sunday along with Martin Buttrich. You know deep house is alive and well at Mysteryland when you have artists like UK’s Maya Jane Coles and Matthew Dear curating their own stage.
Although mainstream electronic music has been scaled back, Mysteryland still secured some all time favorites such as Porter Robinson, Diplo, Dillon Francis and Bro Safari. Overall a very well rounded line up that is sure to please.

Mysterious producer KSHMR has still not let his identity surface, more than a year after turning out tunes like "No Heroes" with Firebeatz, "Burn" and others. But this has not prevented the artist from making quite a name for himself leading us to two of his biggest tracks to date. Today, we get his collaboration alongside powerhouse Dillon Francis, "Clouds."
The high energy anthem goes back to Dillon's earlier Moombahton roots in terms of style, but brings a new, 2015, powerful edge that is ready to ignite the largest of festival crowds. The song also features singing from Becky G, a budding pop star who brings a polished, yet youthful twist to the song with her vocals. We are excited to bring you guys the premiere on this one and even an exclusive download for our readers. KSHMR also has a collaboration with Tiesto set to release next month, so watch out for the masked producer as 2015 is set to be his true breakout year. Enjoy!

A few months ago we covered a short preview teased by Dillon Francis of his collaboration with TSIS favorite Norwegian producer Kygo. Two of the biggest names in electronic music right now have worked with singer James Hersey on something special. The latest and most extensive preview we get of the song is a fan-recorded video at Kygo's biggest headline show to date in his home country of Norway in Oslo at the epic Spektrum venue.
The video gives us a quality taste of the collaboration, and we hear the sunny tropical sounds that Kygo is known for, but we also hear Dillon's hand in the drawn out synths and heavier bass influence we have never seen Kygo experiment with. Since the track is dipped into a live mix we've got to settle for just two minutes of the edit. Check out the video below and we'll keep you posted as news of an official release on Kygo's highly anticipated debut album set for 2015 comes out.
Also don't miss Kygo's debut original single "Firestone" which has been on regular rotation since it released at the beginning of the month.
Following up his debut album, Dillon Francis has already released a remix of one of his own songs and continues the stream of new music with another track to help close the year out. Dillon has been enlisted to give his signature spin on the breakout single "Runaway" from the exciting progressive house duo Galantis. We get a powerful flip from Dillon in the festival trap and electro directions. Stream the song below and we will keep you posted on a release date. Enjoy!

Still exploding from the success of his debut studio album Money Sucks, Friends Rule, and just after releasing a free Rebirth version of one of it's songs, Dillon Francis shows no sign of slowing down.

Dillon Francis is riding the success of his debut album Money Sucks, Friends Rule and doesn't stop the flow of new music with his latest rebirth. Previous rebirths (remixes of his own songs), like "Without You" featuring T.E.E.D, "Masta Blasta", and a collaborative rendition of "Get Low" with DJ Snake have all managed to turn things up.

As Dillon Francis debut studio album Money Sucks, Friends Rule begins to spread around the internet after it’s full release this week, we are starting to stream of remixes coming out of the wood work. UK bass enthusiast Zomboy has taken on Dillon’s progressive indie house single “When We Were Young” and incorporated his bass blending talents into the mix. He’s reconstructed the drops with a pulsating mixture of hard electro and dubstep elements while still letting the vocals shine. A stream is only available for now, but we expect news of massive remix EP of Dillon’s album coming shortly! Until then… Enjoy

The time for Dillon Francis has finally arrived. We posted the stream to his debut album Money Sucks, Friends Rule earlier this week and now we are happy to bring you the new music video for "When We Were Young" ft. Sultan, Ned Shepard and The Chaing Gang Of 1974. The video takes our cast of characters (Dillon, Sultan & Ned Shepard, and The Chain Gang of 1974 as the creepy clown) and throws them back in time to a very wild childhood birthday party. This music video has it all from party favors, games and cake, to creepy clowns, a bouncy house, and a rock concert played out on fisher price instruments. Only something so silly and straight up entertaining could come from the mind of the guy responsible for Hansel and not giving a Fuck or a Shit. You can stream the video below and pre-order the album here. Enjoy!
