Dillon Francis: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Apr 10 2013

Career-wise, Dillon Francis is in an enviable spot. The 25-year-old Los Angeles resident has only been in the producing game since 2009 (tireless tastemaker Diplo gave him his break), and he's both one of the rising names in dubstep and a leader in moombahton, the bubbly reggaeton/house fusion that's swiftly gaining popularity on dancefloors worldwide. Francis has opened for dubstep royals such as Nero, Flux Pavilion, and Skrillex, and collaborated with popular electronic titans Calvin Harris and A-Trak. Just last month, he was put in charge of an official remix of Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie," having already applied his touch to tracks by Death Cab, Steve Aoki, and Gym Class Heroes. His first album is due later this year.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
