Watch the new music video for Dillon Francis and Skrillex’s ‘Bun Up The Dance’
A few months ago, Dillon Francis made good on his promises and returned to moombahton in quintessential I.D.G.A.F.O.S. form, and the result was fire. Dillon dropped a mixtape stocked with spicy new moombahton, energizing an often neglected genre with some much needed attention. The EP featured Chromeo, Bro Safari, Calvin Harris and more, but the track featuring Skrillex may best describe the release altogether. “Bun Up The Dance” is a scorching dance floor weapon, fusing classic mambo themes with battering percussion, that feels like the moombahton Dave Nada had in mind, but packs a noticeably harder punch.
Now Dillon and Skrillex have delivered the music video to their collaboration, following suit with other Skrillex music videos. The video features shadowy figures devouring the hypnotic snare hits as the track calls for “a little fire, so gimme di line.” The blend of distorted patois, silhouettes twirling in the dark, and wisps of fire illuminating dark corridors is enough to make the hair on your neck stand up to say the least.
