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!

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!

The road to Dillon Francis' debut studio album Money Sucks, Friends Rule has been paved with customary delays, a rigorous tour schedule, and select premieres from the album over the last year. And now, before the album hits stores on October 28th, we have a full stream of the new magnificent release! Leaving no genre untouched and boasting a handful of notable collaborators, Dillon showcases his creative talents on 12 diverse tracks starting off with the electro-bounce party starter "All That" featuring fresh lyrics from legendary Chicago rapper Twista.

After initial listens, you will easily understand why we’ve proclaimed this as one of the biggest releases of 2014 for many months. Job well done Dillon Francis; this album was well worth the wait!
