tumblr_mvr4v7IHmM1scyixoo1_5001 What is there really to say about Dillon Francis other than that he is one of the most talented, original, and weird DJs in the industry. His signature IDGAFOS style and pants dropping shenanigans has made him a Seattle favorite who has yet to disappoint. Dillon Francis is known for his moombahton and trap tracks, although he has a very successful side project as deep house loving DJ Hanzel. His sets are full of nonstop energy with banger after banger. However, Dillon tends to strive away from a purely mainstream set instead favoring some more obscure, and often times ridiculous tracks. Last year at Freaknight, Dillon laid down an impressive set that mixed Hanzels deep house with traditional Francis moombahton and it was incredible. Besides his impressive DJ skills, Dillon is also a very talented producer creating some of the catchiest tracks in recent years. Get Low (with DJ Snake), Masta Blasta, Bootleg Fireworks, and Without You are just a few of his tracks that ignite dance floors nightly. Make sure to catch Dillon Francis this October at Freaknight.
