For Dillon Francis, there is no better time to make huge career choices than when he is in the shower. His debut album, Money Sucks, Friends Rule, found its name from a fleeting mid-wash thought.
Friendship is important to the 26-year-old DJ/producer, and he tells MTV News that most of his “go-to-bros” are fellow producers and artists.
“Porter Robinson, I think I talk to him every week…just about everything in the world, about life, just being you know, an insane DJ that rants to him,” he said. “Teed, Calvin Harris, Diplo…And then Madeon.”
His buddies also weigh in on his music, offering advice, and sometimes, words of caution — especially from Porter Robinson and Madeon. “They tell me the truth, like don’t… play that,” Dillon laughed.
Money Sucks, Friends Rule is set to drop October 28 on Mad Decent, featuring the likes of Diplo, Lil Jon, Brandon Urie and many more.
