While Dillon Francis wont be dropping his first full length album until July, this week he has given us a gem and a little preview of what to expect. The collaboration with DJ Snake was first debuted at Tomorrow World last September, at both of their set. “Get Low” is a perfect example of what a collaboration should sound like. When you take DJ Snake’s chart topping Trap drops and combine them with Dillon Francis’s original Moombahton drum programming, you get great fusion of sounds that reflects what MAD DECENT is all about. Pick up the new single below and be on the look out for upcoming singles from Dillon Francis on the road to his album release this summer. Dillon Francis also debuted a track with Diplo at Tommorrow World, who also collaborated with DJ Snake on another track that debuted at the festival, so be on the look out.
With the anticipation of his new album growing by the day, Dillon has given us a little something something to tide us over. Taking a break from his album production and his daily social media personae we are once again reminded how talented he is. Transforming Steve Angello’s ever popular club hit KNAS, Dillon has given it a Trapped out “Re-birth.” With his classic hard hitting synth work and tight production we can only get more more excited for what is to come out on the album. Grab this one for free now and be sure to stay tuned for Dillon’s full length album that will be dropping this spring.
As to be expected, a year such as 2013 which has included a ton of amazing new production has yielded a handful of awesome remixes. The twenty or so tracks below were all chosen because we felt the remix had truly elevated the song to the next level. The art of the remix requires a good ear and a level of creativity that improves on the original piece and can grab the listeners attention even though they may already be familiar with the orginal. Another great thing about remixes is that no artist really seems to outgrow the practice, this list is filled with young guns as well as some of our timeless favorites such as Alesso, Tommy Trash, and Cedric Gervais.
The goal of any remix is to breathe new life into a track that may have fallen out of the spotlight such as the Brillz and Z-trip take on the legendary Jay-z song Dirt Off Your Shoulders or Vinnie Maniscalco’s remix of The Champ’s original Tequila. The tracks below are in no specific order but this is the perfect playlist for any pre-game or party as just about anyone should be able to find a song here they can relate too. Be sure to support all the artists below with a follow on Soundcloud and we cannot wait to see what refixes, re-takes, and remixes that 2014 will bring us!
2013 has been an amazing year for the EDM industry as a whole, Indie Dance and Nu-Disco are two genres that seem to have truly exploded this year as we witnessed tracks such as Royals and groups like Disclosure reach every radio station and musical outlet around the world. With Daft Punk and Pharrell’s track Get Lucky crushing charts and album sales since its release there is no doubt that EDM skeptics from previous years are finally coming around and truly enjoying these more approachable genres. Clearly there were the obvious five or six tracks from the list below that just couldn’t be left out as they quickly climbed to the top of Billboard’s top 100 list and often remained there for months. Then there was also a new generation of lesser knowns that have truly broken out of their shells and caught the worlds attention this year such as Duke Dumont, Hot Natured, Russ Chimes and many more.
The list below is filled with some of the years most creative and fun tracks, containing uplifting beats sure to get just about any dance floor moving and vocals that even your parents can relate too. We couldn’t be happier with the diversity of this years list it is great to watch as young guns like Anna Lunoe, Amtrac, and Thomas Jack make their way alongside the likes of Daft Punk, Boys Noize and Dillon Francis. With many of these tracks gaining a lot of momentum in the music industry as a whole we are witnessing more and more sold out shows and events and hearing more and more of our favorite artists on all sorts of media outlets be it radio, film, or television, 2013 has truly been a huge year for the Indie Dance and Nu-disco Movement. Have a listen to the tracks below which are in no specific order what so ever, but all of a quality we at MMIBTY carefully deemed as the years best.

Woah has this guy exploded onto the scene! It couldn’t have been more than a few months ago when I heard Henry Fong ‘s Jump for the first time. After showing the tune to a few of my friends they were equally impressed with the production and I knew something special was going to come of it. Since first hearing Jump the attention Henry has garnered has been something amazing. Along with his fantastic originals he has also earned the duties to remix some of the game’s biggest artists including Zedd, Kill The Noise, and Dillon Francis to name a few. His brand of hard hitting yet simplistic electro house is something that is unparalleled in the game of late. Recently hitting the 50k follower mark on Facebook, Mr. Fong has released a bootleg pack of epic proportions. This pack really has something for everyone as he mashes up some of today’s most popular beatport toppers with some of yesterday’s favorites, beatport toppers with other beatport toppers, beatport toppers with some of today’s pop, and any other combination you can think of. Download the pack below for FREE, show the artist some love on his social media page, and get ready to see Mr. Fong climb the ranks of the dance music scene.
Look out everyone the Kid is back at it again! After posting his Double Feature EP a couple months ago Mr. Kid Kamillion has been busy in the studio. Today we bring you his latest release Let It Drop. Following suit from his previous release of Say Whut! and Sex Panther, which saw support form big players such as Diplo, Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, and Bro Safari, the Kid brings us another big trap hit to add to your collection. The simplicity of this track is apparent but you can’t deny that sometimes less is more in a minimal genre such as trap. That being said the synth work of the song is its strongest attribute and is sure to turn some heads. It’s only a matter of time before this Kid sees some large success in the trap game so keep an eye on him.
