Ah, Valentine’s Day—everyone feels some type of way.
Whether it’s a romantic evening with hearts and flowers and your significant other, or its a singles night on the town back on your finest bullshit, Dillon Francis has your back this year. We linked with Mr. Steal Your Girl this year for two specially curated playlists to get you in the mood for whatever Valentine’s Day 2020 brings. With one for the lovers, and one for the ragers, we’ve got two mood-setting playlists on deck courtesy of the man, the myth, the legend, Dillon Francis.
So, whether it’s all mushy love songs today or “forget love, time to party”—we’ve got you covered. From David Guetta and Daft Punk to Eptic and Kill The Noise, today’s Valentine’s vibes await below. Enjoy.
DUCKY is aiding listeners in seeing the only red that matters this Valentine’s Day with her I Still Believe In Love EP.
The aptly titled, four-track EP arrives on through her own Quackhouse imprint. DUCKY’s painted persona washes over the tracks; her honeyed vocals serve as an animated focal point of the gamey, melodic dubstep project. Ducky recently shared “Day Zero,” the EP’s opening track, ahead of the full release this past January.
DUCKY’s production dexterity stretches from anthems in the hardcore realm to spaced-out experimental. She started DJing at the ripe age of 13, quickly becoming enraptured by LA’s sprawling club locales. In that time, she’s acquired auspicious releases with the likes of Insomniac and Nest, to name a few.
Snuggle up with your boo or rev your vengeance this Valentine’s Day, as Dancing Astronaut delivers a double dose of situational satiation. Playlist 1, This Could Be Us, scratches the adorned listeners’ sensuous itch, with syrupy electronic selects from Above & Beyond, Daft Punk, ZHU, and more. Playlist 2, But You Playin’, ventures the length of the scorned lover, with deliciously despondent offerings from SZA, Mija, Lido, and many more. It’s complicated? Just as well, as you’ll have twice the listening litany this year.
The “Happy Now” producer posted a short, cryptic video on Feb. 11 that alludes to forthcoming new music for the upcoming holiday. In the clip, a dreamy melody peeks through blustery sound effects, while the visuals display a snow-covered mountain scene. It ends abruptly with a black screen reading “February 14th.”
Clocking in at just a few seconds long, Kygo gives his fans only the slightest hint at what’s to come of the new tune, but knowing the Norwegian artist’s aptitude for hits, it’s sure to kick off his 2019 in fine style.
UPDATE 11:35 a.m. CST: Kygo revealed via Facebook that the track is called “Think About You” and features vocalist Valerie Broussard.
