Dillon Francis enlivens Galantis’ ‘No Money’ with a raucous remix
Dillon Francis has developed a reputation as one of dance music’s most coveted remixers over the last several years. With his intricate production knowledge, Francis has an unprecedented knack for breathing new life into mainstream hits with his compatibly chaotic reinterpretations. From “Some Chords” and “Knas,” to “Omen” and “The Right Song,” Dillon Francis has consistently proven his rare ability make well-known tracks into his own creations without compromising the core features of the original productions.
One of Francis’ most celebrated remixes of the past two years was his spin on Galantis’ “Runaway,” which saw the moombahton maverick transform the duo’s pop house debut into a formidable trap success. Now, Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw have recruited Dillon to remix “No Money,” their first original release since Pharmacy. In his newest remix, Dillon Francis leaves the pop-laden vocals and melodic sensibilities of “No Money” intact before erupting into an electro break, which energizes the original production in an inimitable way but stays the course in its inspiration’s upbeat character.
