Dillon Francis: “Bootleg Fireworks (The Rebirth)”
Producer, DJ, and visual artist Dillon Francis can’t help but push the boundaries of banging club music with his fresh experimental sounds. So it’s no surprise that he would remix his own electro hit with a gangster vibe. First released as a tenacious track that helped spread the slowed-down sound of moombahton, Francis’ “Bootleg Firework” gets a rebirth with this new version. By throwing some thumps and a feast of trap beats on the epic single, Francis presents club fans with a massive track that has all the bass and beats needed for electro thuggin.
Putting his German electro shine to work, Boys Noize takes on the cruising sound of Kavinsky in this amped-up remix of the heated single “ProtoVision.” Sounding like it sped right out of the Drive soundtrack onto a magnetic field, this beat bashing track gets you into a hype zone that will last all night. You can catch this remix along with other Provision mixes by Blood Orange, Sebastien Tellier, and Sugar Tongue Slim on Kavinsky’s recently released ProtoVision EP.
Remixing Foals’ original pop hit “My Number” with synthy beats and spacey funk, British electro group Hot Chip gives us an especially dreamy track to groove to. With an airier and ethereal rhythm, this remix is a refreshing electro twist on the original single. Definitely a club joint that can be taken on the road, this track’s infectious sound will breath life into your weekend.
