A sensitive side to Dillon Francis? Who would have thought…but I am nonetheless thoroughly impressed. Francis released the dance music ballad, ‘Without You’, today via Mad Decent expressing a different side to him aloof the usual moombahton and electronic craziness he’s known for. The song – with TEED (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs) on the vocals – is a record filled with emotion and most of which is personal and extremely heartfelt. Francis himself gave us some insight on his SoundCloud:
“This song is very meaningful to me because as TEED and I were working on the song I was having relationship problems of my own. He ended up writing the song about the whole situation I was going through..”
It’s refreshing seeing a favorite artist, especially in today’s dance music industry, stray away from a certain norm they’re put in and composing something completely different – which Francis executed flawlessly. TEED‘s melody on ‘Without You’ adopts a more alternative approach making the song unique alongside a lighter beat drop with a sense of rapture. Stream the somber yet empowering track below and it’s available for purchase via iTunes or Beatport.
