Two legends of EDM, Dillon Francis and Boombox Cartel, have finally come together and have produced one uplifting and energetic trap/future bass tuner. Entitled “Drip”, the song represents both these artists so well, perfectly portraying a style that they have both thrived on throughout their storied careers. Not only does this song bounce and hit
If a track bears Dillon Francis‘s ubiquitous emblem, listeners can expect a record that’s a little bit bombastic, packed with a whole lot of flavor. For his latest Mad Decent development, Francis signed on with equally fervid producer, Boombox Cartel for a smoldering new single, “Drip.”
Bolstered by hip-hop hot topic, Desiigner, “Drip” does just that, flowing through styles spanning Francis’s buoyant moombahton muscle to Boombox Cartel’s fluttering future bass/trap finesse. The producers’ seminal, festival-friendly flairs are on full, twofold display, with neither entity’s style audibly smothered by the other, as often happens with high-profile collaborations.
The momentous tune is a guaranteed soon-be-fixture in both producers’ prolific summer festival bookings, which include HARD Summer and EDC Korea for Francis and Lollapalooza and Electric Zoo for Boombox Cartel.

As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.
Two longtime heavy hitters in the EDM scene look like they’re finally going to be putting something out together. These two I’m sure are no strangers to all of you, they have been killing the game for so long and it’s about time that they finally got into the studio. Although we don’t have all
The next installment for the multi-platinum-selling DJ is titled What’s In Dillon’s Box? The weekly video series will consist of brief reviews about some products Francis acquires via “drunk” Amazon purchases. The pilot reviews a Vector Robot with a myriad of frustrating qualities, all of which drive Francis towards squaring up with an object that’s a fraction of his size. Despite its flaws, the Robot will be given away to one lucky commenter. In the video’s Thumbnail, it displays as a play on third-party YouTubers that use silly images as clickbait for their review video.
Aside from YouTube content, Francis recently signed a development deal with 20th Century Fox Television to spearhead an animated series called Gerald’s World, all focused on his famous candy-filled friend.
The moment has finally arrived for Dillon Francis to stir EDC‘s Kinetic Field, with his iconic bass-laden, moombahton sound. His choice slot at the festival’s main stage comes after a series of huge developments on the career front. In the past six months alone, the Latin Grammy nominee went on an expansive national tour alongside Alison Wonderland, ventured further into television with a Fox deal for Gerald’s World, and packed out the Sahara Tent both weeks of Coachella.
Francis also confirmed that This Mixtape Is Fire 2 will make it to digital shelves sometime in May or June—thus, this notable EDC performance serves as a ripe testing ground for new music on the record. The mixtape’s debut was in 2015. It’s also likely he’ll inject his latest anthem with lovelytheband, “Chamge Your Mind,” somewhere in the mix. Listen closely for new dancefloor weapons until 4:14am.
Dillon’s is the stage’s penultimate performer, with Jamie Jones taking over afterward to close out.
The video showcases the 34th annual Pro Darts Tournament of the Flowers on PBSPN with professional host-with-the-most Rick Jambles (played by Francis) and his best friend and former pro-dart champion, Jackie D (played by Alison Becker) commentating. Dirk Duckland (Jimmy Tatro) and Maddie Gilmoore (Anna Akana) face off in an intense dart battle that takes a dark turn with a light upside. The music video was directed by Brandon Dermer whose worked with Panic! At The Disco, Diplo, and Steve Aoki.
After headlining Coachella and bringing lovelytheband on stage as a surprise guest, Francis announced a partnership with 20th Century Fox Television for an animated comedy series called Gerald’s World, based off his lovable piñata best friend and social media superstar.
In a one-minute recap video posted to Twitter, Francis summed up his Coachella weekend and shared that the highly anticipated follow-up to his August 2015 mixtape, which included iconic tracks like “Coming Over” with Kygo and James Hersey and “Bun Up the Dance,” is just a month or two away.
“When will it be coming out you ask? Probably sometime in May or June depending on when I finish all the other songs,” Francis noted in his tweet. He had previously hinted that he was working on it in March.
The recap video—which showed Francis being interviewed, performing, and running around saying he’s “influencing”—also shares what’s likely a sneak peek at an upcoming new moombahton number.

Over the past decade, Dillon Francis has been somewhat of a fixture at the Sahara tent. Since making his Coachella debut in 2013, the impish moombahton mainstay has been a premier attraction at the festival’s rowdiest stage in 2014, 2017, and now, 2019.
To celebrate the milestone of his fourth Coachella appearance, he laced his energetic, primetime set with notable guest appearances from some of his choice collaborators. In addition to inviting DJ Snake to join him onstage for their hit, “Get Low,” Francis temporarily veered attention away from the decks, as lovelytheband came onstage to perform their recent joint single, “Change Your Mind.”
In an Instagram album recapping the set, Francis succinctly expressed how emotional the experience was for him, further engendering excitement regarding what’s in store for Coachella’s second weekend.
Dillon Francis is officially developing his own animated series for Fox that will star none of than Gerald the Piñata. While it has been proven through many social media platforms that Francis has a knack for humor, he is not diving into the world of sitcom development unaided. Working with him on the project is
