If the past two years have been any indication, Los Angeles born-and-bred DJ/producer Dillon Francis seems to be well on his way toward EDM stardom. Having already graduated from club-style venues to the bigger theaters and festival stages of the live music world, Francis continues to find a stronghold among college kids and young EDM fans due, in part, to the support of moombahton advocate Diplo (the two are said to be good friends on and off the decks).

But it wasn’t until a couple months ago that the 27-year-old finally released his debut full-length album Money Sucks, Friends Rule following a string of EPs — eight to be exact — over the first four years of his career. Packing the Fox Theater Oakland on a weeknight as part of his 18-date, North American headlining tour, Francis used heavy beats, an impressive light show and a colorful stage setup to get the scantily-clad crowd dancing after TJR and Hoodboi warmed things up.
