These days, there isn’t much that Diplo-discovered Dillon Francis hasn’t done. To date, he’s scored multi-platinum hits both as a DJ and producer, with number one hits like “Candy,” “Anywhere,” “Coming Over” and his 500 million-plus streamed “Get Low” with collaborator DJ Snake. His two full-length releases, Money Sucks, Friends Rule (2014) and Wut Wut (2018), held spots on multiple charts. When he’s not working on busting out crazy new club hits, he may be acting as his comedic German alter ego DJ Hanzel on his TBS Digital show One Deeper Talks — in which he interviews some of the EDM industry’s biggest players. If he’s not on taping an episode, you may check Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas where 2018 marks Francis’s third year in residency there. Of the plethora of DJs and producers gracing the stages at this year’s Lollapalooza, Dillon Francis should be at the top of your hit list.
