Dillon Francis’ “Without You” video is apparently very helpful for insomnia.
We didn’t name EDM/remix DJ/musical genius Dillon Francis last week’s Artist To Watch for nothing. Oh, you need a Dillon Francis refresher course? Allow us to oblige: Dude’s a monstrously talented visual artist, a highly sought after remixer (see: his take on Calvin Harris’ “Feel So Close” and Passion Pit’s “Carried Away). Also: Did we mention that Dillon literally helped found two movements called “moombahton” (a fusion of house and reggaeton) and “moombahcore”?
Cut to present day: Dillon’s continuing to dominate the EDM game with original material, including his latest single and video, “Without You” featuring Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.
Watch Dillon Francis’ “Without You” video featuring Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs after the jump.
In the Mister Whitmore-directed clip, we meet a totally hot babe who, unfortch, has a rough case of insomnia. As Dillon’s EDM/electropop masterpiece plays in the background, the boy-shorts-clad chick tosses and turns in bed, totally unable to sleep. (P.S. Congrats on not drooling, bb!)
Next thing we know, said pretty girl’s mattress is randomly transported to an abandoned, smokey room (because why not?) where — surprise, surprise — she still CAN’T SLEEP. It’s basically an insomniac’s worst nightmare. But on the bright side, at least she’ll have Dillon’s sonic masterpiece to help distract her while counting sheep, right? Oh, hmmmm, wait… that sounds counter-intuitive.
