There is much more to Dillon Francis than the Electronic Music DJ/Producer. To be honest, we have grown to love each and every version of him. His internet personalities have taken the world by storm. His humor has grown his Social media following exponentially and a lot has been said about his acting ability since
After streaming platform go90 shuttered at the end of July, it seemed the world might never see Dillon Francis’ much-anticipated series, Like and Subscribe. The show kicked off its promotions in June with a mural in Los Angeles that only allowed access to verified influencers and those with more than 20,000 social media followers. Like and Subscribe was supposed to follow shortly after on July 9, but the show lost its network when go90 ceased to exist on July 30. Since then, Francis has been at work finding a new place for the show to live, and it’s finally found a home on Funny or Die.
Like and Subscribe stars Francis as Skyy Goldwynne, the most powerful manager in Hollywood. “Somewhere along the line he signed a bunch of influencers and then forgot about them,” reads the show’s promotional blurb. “When he sees an article in the trades about how terrible he is for representing them, he is left with no choice, but to lock them all in a house together, and film it.”
The 23-minute inaugural episode, titled “The House,” is out now on Funny or Die’s YouTube channel.
About a month ago Dillon Francis posted a picture down on one knee in front of Alison Wonderland. He proposed in a way. But what he proposed was not a marriage but a collaboration.

Nitti Gritti is a force to be reckoned with in 2018. In August, he unveiled Bootlegs Vol. 2, a remix EP including edits of Earth, Wind, & Fire‘s “September,” Waka Flocka Flames‘ “Hard In Da Paint,” and other cult classics. More recently, he’s gifted fans with an original EP entitled Drive released on Diplo‘s Mad Decent imprint. With this string of EP releases (and a few remixes in between), the Miami-based producer is pushing boundaries and earning tour support for high-end artists such as NGHTMRE, Etc! Etc!, Party Favor, and more.
Now, on October 26, one of his most anticipated shows of the year has arrived, as Gritti will take the stage with Valentino Khan and Dillon Francis at Light & Life’s Halloween Warehouse 2018. To prime attendees for what should be a freaky night in the depths of Brooklyn, Gritti has curated an Orbit Spotify playlist exclusively for DA.
The selection includes hard-hitting tracks from his current rotation, including favorites from his Drive EP, the Boombox Cartel and Flosstradamus team-up “ID,” “Crystal Eyes” from Ekali‘s 2018 debut EP, and more.
Dillon Francis just put out a second music video for his recent single, “WHITE BOI (FEAT. LAO RA).” Apparently the video took a while to produce and he just forgot it was being made. The other night it was actually titled, “#WHITEBOI MUSIC VID THAT TOOK SO LONG I 4GOT AND MADE ANOTHER VID AND HAVE

Dillon Francis releases a second music video for his WUT WUT hit”White Boi,” featuring Lao Ra. The hilarious lyric music video consisting of numerous of white boy activities was made by PIZZASLIME. It’s a colorful, tongue-in-cheek video that features stereotypical “white boy favorites” — such as safari jungle hats, dad hats, Hawaiian t-shirts, unfashionable running sneakers, construction, khaki shorts, basic sandwiches made with wonder bread, Mountain Dew, pizza, LinkedIn, running on the beach, and more.
To make things fun, Francis hosted a naming contest on social media. Hayden Bradshaw won, naming the music video “WHITE BOI DOES WHAT!?!?!? (NOT CLICKBAIT)(GONE SEXUAL).”The Latin Grammy award winning artist doubled down on his initial music video filmed in the Dominican Republic, placing Lao Ra front and center. Picking a favorite version is certainly tough when Dillon Francis is involved!

Now Dillon Francis is no stranger to the power of social media. But even the one-time meme king of EDM’s interaction rate is

For Dillon Francis, WUT WUT marks a return to the producer’s moombahton roots. Francis’ long-teased second full-length production, WUT WUT is noteworthy for its immersion in Spanish stylization. From Latin influence in WUT WUT’s beat arrangements to the album’s Spanish-language lyrics, WUT WUT marries Francis’ passion for moombahton constructions to his equally ardent and historied love of Spanish music, a match that makes for a distinctive and sonically explorative release.
Included among previously released WUT WUT tracks like “White Boi” and the Latin Grammy and Latin American Music Awards-nominated “Sexo” are a series of album constituents that scale the continuum of Latin crossover. “Ven” toes Latin trap territory, while other tracks like “Esta Noche” and “Never Let You Go” materialize as softer, Latin pop-leaning offerings. WUT WUT additionally boasts a number of high-profile features, with Happy Colors, De La Ghetto, Young Ash, Arcangel and more pitching in variant vocal contributions.
“When I was in Mexico promoting “We the Funk,” everyone was like, ‘Thank you so much for making music in Spanish, thank you for pushing the music.’” Francis recently told Rolling Stone. “That’s really what the whole project was about: to show people where I originally got [inspiration] from. Moombahton is reggaeton meets dance music, and that’s why I wanted to work with Spanish [-language] artists, so that people could understand that this is where the music came from. So if anything, I’m just trying to give back to where a lot of my success came from.”
