NGHTMRE just dropped a heavy remix of  Lookas’ “Loko” and it’s one of their best remixes in my book! You can tell the guys are getting used to these festival appearances, because their music is now geared towards building up that energy from the crowd. This one has a DJ Snake flavor to it, meets Dillon Francis, and I don’t know about ya’ll, but that’s what I call top notch production! This is for sure a must listen and a must download!

My Jersey grown boys I.O.U. are back with a powerful track “Unless We Dance” which brings up that moment where you catch the eyesight of a gorgeous lady, wherever, and just like that, she walks off the bus, or crosses you on the sidewalk, and you’ll never know her name, or even have the chance to spend the rest of your life with that beautiful girl, and yeah Buck and Izee made a song about just that. If you’re in love, or crushing hard, this track will speak to you, it’s a must listen!

Chill | Still Parade – Actors (Dinnerdate Remix)

The homie Dinnerdate just deaded everything with this remix of Still Parade’s “Actors” and it’s a gem! Soothing vocals over a bed of strings which leads into a spacy chill drop that will have you feel like flying. You know those sounds that airlines play before take off, that are usually on the mellow side, well this one fits right in to that playlist, and it’s perfect. This comparison might sound like a reach, and that’s alright, but this remix has the same vibes from the Girgio Moroder’s “Midnight” by Coldplay remix, in my opinion, and for that alone, it’s a must listen and a must download!

Folks, get your pen and notepad out, Cesare is a name you’re going to want to write down, because this  remix of Fickle Friend’s “For You” is orgasmic, like taking naps on the beach next to your significant other while on vacation, that kind of feel good. Now I’m not sure if Cesare is actually the caveman on his profile picture, but either way, he makes cool sound easy, and you shouldn’t sleep on this remix, this def hits the spot, it’s a must listen and a must download!

FYI | Why Dillon Francis’s “Money Sucks, Friends Rule” Album Title Is Nonsense

Posted by on October 21, 2014

Screen Shot 2014 10 21 at 12.20.41 PM 500x262 Why Dillon Franciss Money Sucks, Friends Rule Album Title Is Nonsense
Millionaire DJ Dillon Francis would like you to know he has an album coming out. Not just any album. An album disingenuously titled “Money Sucks, Friends Rule” that he would like you to purchase with your hard earned money. In an interview with Radio.com, Dillon explained the genesis of the title.

When he was stuck on what to call his album, Francis’ manager reminded him of the T-shirt idea. “I called my manager one day, and I was like, ‘I want to make a shirt that says ‘money sucks, friends rule’ in the Warriors font,” he explained during an interview backstage at Coachella 2014, referencing the distinct spray paint font used on the movie poster for the 1979 New York gang war movie, The Warriors. When he was stuck on what to call his album, Francis’ manager reminded him of the T-shirt idea.“I was like, ‘that’s the best title for an album.’ Because I really feel that way. Friends are forever. Money isn’t.”

Think about that for a second. This is coming from a DJ (and the Windish Agency) who commands $40,0000 a show. That’s only $10,000 less than than the median household income according to recent statistics released by CNN. In fact, only 26% of households in the US make $80,000 a year or more. In a matter of a few shows, Dillon can match that figure assuming manager and agent still take their cut. The title is antithetical to the motif that “DJ Rich As F*ck” is attempting to advance to his adoring flock.

Don’t misunderstand me. I’m all for artists making money. It’s no secret that it’s extremely hard to make a living being one. The barriers to entry are higher than ever. However, the title should be ridiculed, and ridiculed thoroughly. The joke isn’t on Dillon Francis. It’s on the fans who buy into this nonsense marketing. They’re so blinded by their love of the artist that it robs them of their ability to think critically and be a skeptic. Perhaps that’s asking too much of an “EDM” demographic steeped in rampant idealism and a penchant for low brow progressive house bangers re-packaged to them time and time again.

If Dillon truly believes that money sucks, he should give his album away for free.

Dillon Francis’s “Money Sucks, Friends Rule” is out via Columbia on October 28th.
