Dillon Francis continues to make his presence felt throughout the electronic scene with production on “Someone to Die For” off Example’s new album, The Evolution of Man. The track is a mellow change of pace from the “IDGAFOS” Francis you may be familiar with, and is a little more comparable to what he did with Dizzee Rascal and Calvin Harris on “Here 2 China.”
Check out “Someone to Die For” below and head over to iTunes for the rest of Example’s The Evolution of Man, which also sees features from Flux Pavilion, Calvin Harris, and Laidback Luke.
Ever wanted to hear all your favorite past, present, and future radio hits all in one place? Enter Calvin Harris’ 18 Months LP. This album is essentially mega-hit after mega-hit, separating tracks like “We Found Love,” “Let’s Go,” and “Feel So Close” with interludes like “Green Valley,” “Mansion” and “School.” To make sure things don’t get too pop though, Calvin carefully spreads out his “Iron” collab with Nicky Romero, “Awooga” and the new “Drinking From The Bottle” with Tinie Tempah among the “Sweet Nothing’s” and “I Need Your Love’s” for what turns out to be a great mix of styles.
Between the thoroughly rinsed melodies like “Bounce” and new found bangers like “Thinking About You” there is a lot to take in on 18 Months. At least 10 of the 15 are songs that either have or certainly will be blasting through your radio this Fall/Winter, and while that may throw a few hipsters for a loop, the album is actually quite amazing for what it is. Stream it below or on Calvin’s website, and find 18 Months out on October 29th/30th.
Released on August 7th through OWSLA, Jack Beat’s Careless EP is a testament to the talents of duo Niall Dailly and Ben Geffin. This extended play takes you through a progressive trip that is more than worthy of a track by track break down. These guys are bringing a new beauty to electronic music.

Despite already having some form of visual accompaniment, Flux Pavilion and Example’s “Daydreamer”official music video has arrived. It’s very similar to the previous version, lots of crowd footage and live shots of the two artists performing, everything’s just on a much more professional level of production. As for the song itself…well, lets just say it still gives me chills. Look for the official release on April 29th.
iTunes (pre-order): Flux Pavilion – Daydreamer (feat. Example)
After being sampled by the Throne and having music featured in the most viral video of 2012, not to mention his already impressive arsenal of tracks, Joshua Steele, aka Flux Pavilion, is primed for a complete takeover of the dubstep market.
He’s teamed up with British singer/rapper Example to to create “Daydreamer,” the first single off his forthcoming debut album. The track flaunts some extremely melodic basslines and dreamy string work that evolve into an energetic anthem, all complimented by Example’s pure vocals. This isn’t the first time the two have collaborated on a track, as last year he produced an astounding remix of “Midnight Run” that received a ton of praise around the blogosphere. I’ve heard rumors of an April 30th release date for the album, but don’t cite me on that…
