Los Angeles producer Dillon Francis surprised fans this year with a transcendent little breakup song called "Without You," a collaboration with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs that found the man who once drew dicks all over his hometown tapping into some very relatable feelings. Today, December 10, Mad Decent releases the Without You Remixes EP, a set that tests just how universal those sentiments are by flipping the beat seven distinct ways.
Kicking it off is Francis' own "The Rebirth," which he describes as a "huge ass big roomy remix ... cue fireworks, cue Tïësto, cue girls crying, cue mainstage." From there, Flux Pavilion & Doctor P deliver heavy dubstep wilding, Treasure Fingers gives us downtempo future disco, Henry Fong goes electrostep, Torro Torro traps and chops, Hayden deconstructs, and Low Steppa takes us to the nü-house.
Stream the entire EP here, and purchase it via iTunes or Beatport. Francis has some dates lined up for December, including a handful that offer a chance to dine on Taco Bell with the man himself. (Really. The website is TacoDill.com.) All that below.
