Dillon Francis is a busy man these days and his self-described sound of "moombahton, luvstep, and everything in-between" means the 25-year-old from Los Angeles has been much in demand. For someone with a bit of a reputation for playing around with the media, as in telling us the best place he's visited this year was Taco Bell, he's also known for saying what he thinks, so it was strange that Dillon was unusually reluctant to answer DJ Mag's standard poll questions about DJ fees or drugs.
Quizzed on the future of moombahton and moombahcore Dillon tells us: "If I knew it... I would do it. I'm just going to keep making music and hopefully that becomes the future of it". As to what the essential elements for a moombahton track are, he lets us into his secrets. "A dembow (the drum beat) which is 105 to 112 bpm, influences of Dutch house and Latin music, and a lot of fucking swag," he says.
