Whether it’s sharing an endless array of comedic hi-jinks via social media channels or impactful live shows spanning across the globe, Los Angeles producer Dillon Francis is one of the beloved producers and artisans in music today. His meteoric rise to fame by way of innovating the 110-bpm selection has lead to countless endeavors across the dance music spectrum with success in each genre touched by his production prowess.
When Dillon isn’t pumping out dance floor / crossover heaters with longtime friend and OWSLA head honcho Skrillex (see ‘Bun Up The Dance’), he’s using his adaptive rebirth methodology to light a fire under with the aforementioned artists blazing remix of GTA’s “Red Lips”.
Having teased this creative rendition over the last few months at live performances, Dillon and Skrillex have finally unleashed their collaborative festival ready weapon for all to hear. A cracking amount of glitchy synths, robust trap elements, and a restructured drop filled will ground-shaking bass are properly arranged throughout the production. You can't help but embrace the thumping creation with open arms as it will soon become a set list staple over the upcoming festival season.
Listen to the co-produced rebirth below and grab yourself a free download too! Enjoy

Electronic music poster child Skrillex recently answered questions from eager fans for a Reddit AMA (ask me anything) in between hosting his own brand new Beats Radio show, overseeing the release of his label OWSLA's Worldwide Broadcast compilation LP which included his team effort alongside MUST DIE! titled "VIP's."
While talking with fans on the AMA, Sonny was asked a question pertaining to his unreleased song "Bug Hunt" in the Disney movie "Wreck It Ralph." Reddit user ShotsLotta asked, "Gotta ask it, why did you release a remix of 'Bug Hunt' and not the original? The original is way too good to remain unreleased forever."
Skrillex answered the question by stating, "It was meant to just live in the Hero's Duty scene of Wreck It Ralph… also its not really a full song. It was just sort of made to fit the scene of the movie. I've just moved onto so many other things since i finished working on that movie.. But perhaps one day I'll open up that project file again and complete it…"
Then after several other fans kept bringing up the subject, Skrillex answered everyones prayers with, "But forreall, I didnt realize how many of you really love OG bughunt… Puts a new fire under my ass to finish it, put it out… but here's the question.. There are 2 versions..Which to do prefer? The one i played at Tomorrowland 2012 Or the one thats at the end of the 'Skrillex in Mexico' clip?"
So guys, Skrillex has asked, now what will be the answer? He's left it up to us. Check out both versions of the song below and shoot him a tweet to let him know your choice!
Recently Skrillex added to his long list of projects announcing via Zane Lowe that he would finally be doing his own radio show, joining Beats 1 with a residency fittingly titled OWSLA Radio after his imprint label.
Now over the weekend we had a chance to hear the premiere episode from the radio show as Mija, Kill The Noise, Anna Lunoe, Getter, 12th Planet, and many more joined Skrillex at his current hide out in Malibu. The episode is filled with fresh music from a wide range of artists including many songs from the recent Worldwide Broadcast compilation. It’s also filled with plenty of behind the scenes storytelling and banter from Skrillex and friends for a program guaranteed to please any OWSLA / Skrillex fan. Stream the show below and check back for more episodes in the future, in addition to fresh new music from the OWSLA camp. Enjoy.
