As Dillon Francis continues his current tour, one of the most notable stops along the way happens to be this weekend in LA, where Francis is holding his Fourth Annual IDGAFOS Weekend - comprised of three nights of music from Francis, Party Favor, Branchez and Nadastrom. At Thursday night's show, Francis dropped an unreleased ID with NGHTMRE and then at Friday night's show, dropped the same unreleased ID, but this time, showing off his collab with Alesso.
First revealed by YourEDM, two amateur videos uploaded to YouTube by the user account, Trevor Leon, show clips of both collaborations, each incredibly different in their own respects.
The first video shows off Francis's collaboration with NGHTMRE, who just recently dropped his own VIP Edit of his original track, "Streets," displays Francis's notorious moombahton sound, mixed with NGHTMRE's signature trap style, making for an incredibly bass-heavy, trappy, crowd pleasing anthem.
The second video, Francis's collaboration with Alesso, showcases once again Francis's moombahton sound but mixed with Alesso's notorious, big-room, electro house style sound, that differenciates this one from the ID with NIGHTMRE.
Francis, like many other artists, has had a very solid 2015, as he released his EP, This Mixtape Is Fire, earlier this year which featured Skrillex, dropped the music video to "Set Me Free," with Martin Garrix and, most recently, was featured on What So Not's massive, Gemini EP.
As noted in an earlier Music Times article, Francis made his way to No. 67 on DJ Mag's Top 100 List of 2015 and No. 36 on Billboard's Top 50 List. Although he's not necessarily listed towards to top of these lists, the year Francis had in 2015, should help catapult him up a few spots come 2016. Enjoy these two ID-collabs with NGHTMRE and Alesso for now, as hopefully they come to fruition, in full, very soon.
