Across Canada this week the weather is into the plus-20s, which means forget about June 20 — summer starts NOW!
With EDM kidz from far and wide searching for that special tune that says “summer of 2012,” many producers will be pumping their tracks out there, all hoping to score the next “Barbra Streisand” or “Leave the World Behind.” Some will be amazing, yet fail to get the love they deserve. In other cases, the opposite will be true.
Every year a specific sound comes to the fore, and I’ve been waiting for this year’s to drop. BAM! We got it yesterday.
For the past year or more I’ve been professing my love for Dillon Francis — and naturally, I figured if that if anyone was going to define the sound of this summer, it would be him. And it is. Teamed up with 50 percent of Duck Sauce, he has delivered a track that is 100 percent awesomeness. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you “Money Making,” by A-Trak and Dillon Francis — a tune so perfectly addictive it will be an immediate download.
Best of all is the video that accompanies this track. Watch out for cameos from P-Thugg, Natalia Kills and my favourite rapper of the moment, Action Bronson.
This tune is bananas.. I’ll be keeping count of how many times I hear it this Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas — which is where I’m headed right now. Stay tuned for updates!
