NEW ALBUM: DILLON FRANCIS | HAPPY MACHINE
In celebration of his 34th birthday, the beloved dance music producer and jokester has released his third album, "Happy Machine." The record is far from Francis' rowdy 2014 debut, "Money Sucks, Friends Rule," in terms of its sound. But that doesn't make it any less impressive. As the title implies, Happy Machine is the happiest music of Francis’ career, with an infectious house spirit that courses throughout. Made amid the pandemic, "Happy Machine" serves as a positive re-entry into the world and a celebration of life, family and friends. The album features previously released tracks ‘Unconditional’ with 220 KID and Bryn Christopher, "Love Me Better" with Shift K3Y and Marc E. Bassy—which recently reached #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay Chart and "Reaching Out" featuring Bow Anderson. The highly collaborative album features joint tracks with Shift K3Y and Marc E. Bassy, Bow Anderson, Liza Owen, and 220 KID. One of its standout cuts is the GRACEY-assisted "In Case I Fall Asleep," which explores empathy and the responsibility we have to offer loved ones a shoulder to lean on. Fans will be able to experience "Happy Machine‘s" shuffling dose of cheer out on Francis’ Sugar, Spice and Everything Ice tour alongside Yung Gravy and KITTENS.
