Dillon Francis infuses Kito, Zhu, and Jeremih’s ‘Follow’ with house
In mid-August, Kito and ZHU shared their Jeremih-assisted track, “Follow.” The summery track marked a distinctly different sound for ZHU compared with his typical dark house sound, but nonetheless has been very well received by fans. Now, “Follow” earns its first remix, courtesy of perennial hit-maker Dillon Francis.
Francis’ take on “Follow” doubles down on the original’s subtle house elements, keeping the song structure largely intact while swapping the bright chorus for a robust bass line and pitch-shifted vocal loop. As we transition from summer to fall, “Follow” too sheds its warm-weather energy for a more club-centric sound.
“Follow” is Dillon Francis’ third remix in as many months following his takes on Oliver Tree’s “Cash Machine” and “You Do You” under his DJ Hanzel alias. Meanwhile, ZHU recently received another remix from Solomun for his collaboration with Bob Moses, “Desire.” Dancing Astronaut recently spoke with ZHU about adjusting and adapting to his whirlwind year.
