By 2017, platinum-selling DJ and producer, host and creator of TBS Digital’s One Deeper Talks, actor, and all-around nice guy Dillon Francis solidified himself as modern-day renaissance man. Averaging over 4 million monthly Spotify streams, he achieved a string of smashes, including the #1 Dance Radio Airplay hit “Anywhere” [feat. Will Heard], “Candy” [feat. Snappy Jit], #1 Billboard Dance Club Songs chart-topper “Coming Over” with Kygo [feat. James Hersey], and the RIAA platinum-certified “Get Low” with DJ Snake—which surpassed 500 million worldwide streams. Francis initially made history in 2012 as “the first moombahton artist to achieve the number-one spot on Beatport” with the Something, Something Awesome EP. His 2014 major label debut album, Money Sucks, Friends Rule [Mad Decent/Columbia Records], landed on Rolling Stone’s “Top Electronic Albums of 2014” list. 2015’s This Mixtape Is Fire EP bowed at #1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart.
He remains a festival favorite, igniting the stages of Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra, TomorrowWorld, Electric Zoo, and more. 2017 saw him reprise his residency at the Wynn Las Vegas for the second consecutive year. He consistently engages a social media following of 1.6 million on Instagram, 1.5 million on Facebook, and 921K on Twitter with a string of hilarious content as well as his YouTube series DJ World. His alter ego DJ Hanzel would not only open gigs, but also serves as the host for the comedic series One Deeper Talks. The real Francis’ music has piped through Furious 7, Entourage, Neighbors, Zoolander 2, and more. Now, he shakes things up once again with his 2017 single “Say Less” [feat. G-Eazy]—the first release under his own IDGAFOS independent label.
