Dillon Francis At Capitol Hill Block Party Day One

What could have easily been expected to be a straight-up moombhaton and trap throwdown turned out to be one of the best Capitol Hill Block Party electronic performances to date.  Watching Dillon Francis spin on the CHBP Main Stage, two things were immediately clear: his abiding love of the music (shown to everyone by the constant smile on his face plastered on the massive video screens) and his absolute mastery of genre blending.  His set was completely unpredictable, weaving through trap, moombhaton, progressive and electro house, dubstep and a few other surprises.

What stood out the most to us was the ease Dillon seemed to move from one genre to another.  Mixing between them and even drastically changing tempos felt absolutely effortless, and kept the jam-packed crowd constantly guessing.  Combine with a few HUGE tracks from his upcoming album, and every minute of the Dillon Francis set felt huge and unexpected.

The excitement and energy, the intensity of the music, and the crowd’s (and Dillon’s) excitement was captured in this video, snapped by one of our street teamers:

We were already wicked excited about the Dillon Francis set, but this show outdid even our highest expectations, and we’ll be seeing him every chance we get.  If you haven’t seen Dillon Francis live before, take a train or a car or ride a horse to get to one of his shows.  You won’t regret it.
