I’ll admit that I’ve kind of gotten over Dillon Francis as of late. I used to love his productions and had a blast seeing Dillon Francis DJ live on multiple occasions. Maybe it’s because I started getting into the more underground side of Dance music, better suited for Dillon’s alter-ego DJ Hanzel, or maybe it’s because Dillon has gotten away from his Moombahton roots, but either way he hasn’t had my attention. Well that all changed today when a new Dillon Francis remix popped up on my SoundCloud feed. And it wasn’t a remix of just any song – it was a remix of the classic track “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” by Daft Punk. I’ll put aside my disappointment that this remix isn’t of the Moombahton variety (a dying genre?), because Dillon Francis’ Trap remix is extremely well-done. I love the chopped up vocals and I think it has an original sound for a genre that has been beaten into the ground over the past couple years. It takes a special producer to successfully remix a dance classic and I think Dillon Francis nailed it. He writes:

“COACHELLA THIS PAST WEEKEND WAS FUCKING AMAZING AND I LOVE YOU ALL SOOOO FUCKING MUCH!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE SUPPORT AND LOVE YOU SHOW ME DAY IN AND DAY OUT SO HERE IS A FREE DOWNLOAD OF MY REMIX I DID OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE DAFT PUNK SONGS HBFS ….. OH AND HAPPY EASTER”
