DEM BOW DOWN
A true moombahton success story, L.A.’s Dillon Francis parlayed a couple big tunes—jittery, squelchy, Dutch-house-meets-reggaeton tracks “Masta Blasta” and “Que Que”—into EDM semi-stardom. Two years after releasing his breakthrough EP, Westside!, the DJ has moved in the direction of big-hook festival house and hard-hitting dubstep, often smashing them together, as on recent tracks like “Messages” and “I.D.G.A.F.O.S.” Tonight, he plays an MTV showcase, one that might boost his career even more.
