Thrillin’ Like Dillon: ‘Messages’ – Dillon Francis [New Single] [Funky]


If you follow Rager Onions, you know we have crushes.

Not like actual crushes (we have those too), but musical crushes. DJ’s that turn our day around every time we push ‘play’. Artists claiming their stake through their music, not their bullshit. Unknown artists from the East Coast, like The Chainsmokers. Dutch DJ’s that are exploding onto the scene, like Vicetone. And even a modern day revolutionary (so we think), like Savant.

Although he’s become a household name, Dillon Francis continues to produce and deliver. And in a late-March visit to ‘dirtation station’, EDM’s wild child has bestowed another gift upon us.

‘Messages’, the latest single from Dillon Francis – is a groovy tribute to an SMS-obsessed society. His massively complex, funky, and intense sound is topped off with another over-simplified song title. One would say, it’s his personal formula for viral success. In collaboration with Lord Simon, Francis released the full version of his new track this morning on Mad Decent.

Aside from it’s uplifting backdrop in the quintessential Dillon Francis tune, the lyrics are one big double entendre: the messages that you’re sending me.
