Dillon Francis Bedazzles The Corner Hotel in Melbourne

Dillon Francis encapsulated Melbourne on Wednesday night with an electrifying set at The Corner Hotel in Melbourne’s east. As part of his tour with Australian festival Groovin’ The Moo, Dillon has played side-shows in Australia’s biggest cities including Melbourne, and Brisbane and a guest appearance from DJ Hanzel exclusively in Sydney! Put together by BBE, not only were fans awed by his own music but with an array of genres, including Psy-Trance, much to the delight of the underground-influenced Melbourne crowd.

Always a crowd-favorite in Australia, Dillon as per usual, embraced the Aussie culture with numerous interviews, namely with including popular radio station, Triple J. A hilarious DJ Hanzel sketch was also created. In an interview with Pedestrian TV titled ‘Banger or Nah‘, he was asked to identify whether or not he liked the songs he was shown. After being shown Australian singer Darryl Braithwaite‘s iconic song ‘Horses‘, he opted to finish his sideshows with the song, much to the overwhelming delight of the crowd.

However, Dillon Francis wasn’t the only act on display. New Jersey-based trap DJ & producer 4B has supported Dillon during all his Australian sideshows and lived up to the occasion. 4B, who just like Francis, is fresh off an exciting Coachella set, played thrilling songs such as Boombox Cartel‘s ‘Alamo‘, Skrillex and Habstrakt‘s ‘Chicken Soup‘ and his own track ‘Carnival‘. The energy displayed in 4B’s encapsulating performance was greatly reciprocated by the crowd and prepared them well for what was an undoubtedly incredible set from Dillon.

Francis, a Las Vegas regular, showcased his signature moombahton and electro house sound on Wednesday night, complete with his ever-popular satiric humor, mesmerizing light displays and plenty of fog. With a new album on the way, he played popular tracks such as ‘I Can’t Take It‘, ‘We Make It Bounce‘ and ‘What’s That Spell?‘ from his previous album ‘Money Sucks, Friends Rule‘. However, those weren’t the only tracks that got the crowd going. His collaboration with Snappy Jit titled ‘Candy‘ received an exceptional response, as did his ever popular Skrillex collaboration ‘Burn Up The Dance‘. Closing out with he and DJ Snake‘s festival banger ‘Get Low‘ and Darryl Braithwaite’s ‘Horses’, this was a show for Melbournians to remember.
