A legend in the realm of moombaton, Dillon Francis knows exactly what it takes to get your body moving, and DJ Snake is no stranger to banging out beats that'll have you winding your waist like a snake either. Combining DJ Snake's 'Turn Down For What' attitude with the 'Masta Blasta' himself could only lead to one thing, and that is to 'Get Low.'
In preperation of releasing his debut album, Dillon Francis has been constantly touring, and in doing so he is building his name by the minute. After all, what's the point of touring if you're not going to drop fresh new music to play at your shows? Which is exactly what he has done.

DJ Hanzel’s impressive opening in Chicago had fans ready and expecting deep house, but instead Dillon kicked things off for this show. The thing that stuck out most about his set was the multitude of new songs he played. The highlight had to be the one that he says was inspired by butter. Between his collaboration with DJ Snake, Get Low (When the Whistle Go), and his new song with Martin Garrix called Set Me Free, Dillon left his fans thirsty for more.
