In a recent piece from Entertainment Weekly by Dillon Francis himself, the star took some to really dive into all things serious and funny that involved his collaborating partners on his latest EP, “This Mixtape is Fire.” Kygo, Chromeo, Party Favor, Bro Safari, and James Hersey participated in the interview (which leaves only two artists out of the piece, Skrillex and Calvin Harris).
Among the questions, Dillon asks serious questions like why each artist wanted to work with him – to questions like “donuts or broccoli?”… and the answers are sometimes just as random as the questions. On the entertaining side, each artist answers what the most embarrassing moment on stage was for them and even whether they “GAFOS.” Straight-up Dillon lingo.
Each artist gave answers that honestly reflected their contrasting personalities – and the most interesting part of this diverse group is reading each answer. Kygo, for example – says that he wanted to work with Dillon partially because, “I was also laughing hard at all your Instagram stuff.” But on a serious note, he also confesses that his track with Dillon calling “Coming Over” was “probably the fastest collaboration I've ever done.”
With Chromeo, we learn that the members have a pretty wild party side that syncs with Dillon's famously. Meanwhile, family man Bro Safari is much more subdued. He even refuses to answer a couple questions and rejects the words that Dillon asks him generally (with a sly sense of sensibility and humble tact). He says at one point, “I reject this buffoonery.”
When asked about their favorite part of their Jobs, each brings a funny answer to the table as well. Chrome's members seem intent on hanging out with pets… while Dillon interjects and admits that as a producer his favorite part is “when I know it’s about to be the breakthrough part of whatever you’re working on” and “being alone in my room sitting at my computer and making weird noises.”
There's plenty more than just those notes – and some juicy questions that lead to some solid Dillon humor and intriguing answers. Read the full interview here from Entertainment Weekly.
