Dillon Francis announces Spanish-language album WUT WUT
“The whole thing started from the Westside EP in 2011. I had just discovered moombahton and began experimenting with Latin styles,” shared Francis. “For my second album, I wanted to create one cohesive vision, since I now have a better understanding about what that means. Latin music is very close to my heart, and I knew this would be fun. I was trying to go back to the super-duper roots of where I came from. I feel like I could’ve put this out right after the EP, but I’m glad I did it now because of everything I’ve learned and the people I’ve met.”

RISING PARISIAN DJ AND PRODUCER ZIMMER’S “LANDING” VIDEO PREMIERES TODAY!
Of the video Zimmer says, “In 2015, scientists detect Gravitational Waves for the first time. My father was one of them. This is the story of 30 years of research, the discovery of a lifetime. I’ve been profoundly moved by the discovery and Landing is an homage track to my father. Gravitational waves are ripples in space-time. They are caused by the most violent events in the universe, like the fusion of two black holes. They happen million of light years away, yet are smaller than the size of an atom. It is mind blowing we were able to detect them. Their Nobel prized discovery will allow us to observe the Universe in a way never before possible. We had the unique chance to be able to shoot inside Virgo, the European Gravitational Waves observatory, located in Pisa, Italy. Every we shot is real, I wanted to show this incredible machine that’s huge but very precise at the same time.”
