Review | Dillon Francis – “Something, Something, Awesome.” EP

Posted by on February 14, 2012

Dillon Francis released his new EP today as a little Valentine’s day present to his fans. There may be only three tracks (one for each Dillon Francis on that cover art?) but this EP is nonetheless fire: it combines electro house with the downtempo funk of moombahton to great effect. Dillon has already managed to cultivate an undeniably distinctive sound and these tracks reinforce that, with high-pitched synths and the agile, I.D.G.A.F.O.S.-esque melodies that are rapidly becoming his trademark. And, of course, plenty of driving and super danceable moombah basslines. Good stuff all around. My favorite of the three is currently “Dill The Noise,” which Sev previewed in last night’s Moomabah Mondays post, but “Falling Up” (which you may have already heard on BBC Radio 1) is packed with catchy riffs and “Now Hear This” layers some heavier electro synths under those recognizable moombahton leads. In short, this is a must DL; I have a feeling that Dillon’s in for a very big year so support his work by purchasing these tracks on Beatport.
