<em>This Mixtape Is Fire</em>

Shooting to the #1 spot on the iTunes dance chart within the first hour of its release, Dillon Francis’s long-awaited EP proves to be the right amount of new and old sound. Five of the seven tracks — which feature distinguished artists including Calvin Harris, Skrillex, Bro Safari, and others — roar classic moombahton rhythms with unique spins. Among these, two tracks lie outside the Dillon Francis realm yet under the EDM umbrella term. “Lies,” featuring Chromeo, slows the heavily funk-influenced tempo down while “Coming Over,” featuring Kygo and James Hersey, resonates with keys and that relaxed tropical-house feel, both adding good variety to this fire of an EP.
