Dillon Francis has been teasing a moombahton EP for the past few months now, promising big collaborations and a return to some of his original roots. He's been dropping a big collab with Calvin Harris recently, and now we finally have more details on the full release.
Technically it's an EP, but Dillon is calling it a mixtape in the title because mixtapes are way hotter these days. Literally. Every struggle rapper wants you to peep their fire mixtape, and now Dillon is proving that he's got his own fire to unleash on the world. He's calling it "This Mixtape Is Fire," which also features collaborations with Skrillex, Chromeo, James Hersey, Bro Safari, and a Party Favor remix.
The first song is now available for streaming on Soundcloud, titled "Bruk Bruk (I Need Your Lovin)" and features a set of visceral, pitched vocals over highly melodic synthesizers and a heavy moombah beat. It's classic Dillon, yet still highlights his continually evolving style. You can stream that below now, and pre-order the entire release via iTunes before its official release.
From Dillon Francis: "Time for some moombahton with my new EP #THISMIXTAPEISFIRE out August 14th! You can preorder today and get my brand new single "Bruk Bruk (I Need Your Lovin)". Also I put together this FUEGO PACK for you and it comes with a FREE fire extinguisher toy! It's going to be a great summer, I have a lot more news to share with you soon but for now listen to this shit and see you guys at a show! Love you!"
