Almost out of nowhere, Los Angeles' Dillon Francis has broken from the throng of young electronic music dj/producers. With a stream of world-class remixes and releases, Dillon has caught the attention of some of the top players in club land, including Steve Aoki, Diplo, Will I. Am, Drop The Lime, Sinden, and Tittsworth to name some. In less than a year his blistering productions have been heavily supported by Major Lazer, who opened their show with "Westside!," a Dutch House-flavored monster that was consistently rinsed by top djs on both sides of the pond, including Sinden and Steve Aoki. The tune is finally seeing a proper release on Diplo's Mad Decent label, where Dillon will be releasing his "Masta Blasta" EP as well in the near future.. From his first dubstep release on Play Me Records, the heavy "Take Me High" peaked at No. 13 on the Beatport dubstep chart and was played in full by Rusko in every one of his sets for his current OMG tour. In the coming months, Dillon will have releases on Mad Decent, Dim Mak, Top Billin', as well as Plant Music, where he will be releasing his next club EP. At ease behind the turntables and in the studio, in the electro world and in dubstep, Dillon is what you would call an open-format electronic dj who sees no delineation between making music and playing it. He has gotten huge support from the most important dance music blogs (Dim Mak, Mad Decent, Discobelle, Gotta Dance Dirty) ever since releasing his first bootlegs last year, and 2011 promises to be Dillon's breakout year.
Kill The Noise
In a time when the internet and dancefloors around the world are saturated with all types of artists and performers, it's difficult for emerging names to carve out their own niche in the scene and have their sound heard by the masses. However, the dynamic production force known as Kill The Noise has done just that in the small amount of time since their introduction to the electro/house scene just before the turn of the new year.
Upon further inspection, the origin of this unique and refined sound is apparent. The project emerges from the same studio of NY-based avant garde drum & bass front runner Ewun, as well as the brand new, highly regarded mash-up/IDM project Ludachrist. The minds behind these projects are no strangers to the electronic music scene, having already traveled the globe in various other successful musical endeavors.
Tight production, creative, original, and innovative ideas begin to describe the sound Kill The Noise is known for. While some compositions growl with angry, distorted synth lines and glitchy sample edits, others lean towards the more playful, funkier side with addictive melodic hooks and lyrics, complimenting additional productions of the more techno-inspired realm of pumping side-chained beats and infectious rhythms.
This sound has resonated throughout the blogosphere and indie/ electronic dance communities, and has been embraced by both old and new generations of artists and enthusiasts. Commanding attention from its listeners, Kill The Noise has earned support from a diverse selection of notable players in the global electronic dance music community. Names such as Chromeo, Ocelot, Franki Chan of Iheartcomix, LA Riots, Scion Automotive Company, Treasure Fingers, Klever, Craze, Le Castle Vania, and Juxtapoz Magazine, just to name a few - not to mention the plethora of music blogs all over the world who have helped to spread the growing reputation of KTN. Whether it is an original composition or remix, the music stands out from the pack as something special to both the average and avid listeners.
2008 is already shaping up to be huge for Kill The Noise with a truckload of new material in the pipelines including various remixes and a debut EP of original material entitled 'KILL KILL KILL'. All in addition to a growling list of high-profile performances. Kill The Noise is on a mission to prove it's name to be true... Kill the noise, kill the production, kill the scene, and become the most influential production outfit on the block.
