Dance music's resident jester isn't joking around on this one.

While remixing Zomboy's new single "Nuclear," Dillon Francis added an underrated new element to his studio workflow.

"I was dancing around in my studio the whole time I was making it," says Francis. "I hope that it does the same thing to people who hear it at festivals and clubs or in their bedrooms or in strip clubs or during a threesome or when you're washing your car or when you just wanna have some quiet time alone but not too quiet you know?"

All jokes aside, there won't be much quiet time with Francis afoot. Commencing with carefree dub reggae chords and pitched down hand-raising entreaties, his remix builds to a blistering electro synth drop that recalls his most dynamic moombahton material. 

Listen to the full premiere of Dillon Francis's remix of Zomboy's "Nuclear" exclusively on Billboard:

Zomboy says Francis was a natural choice to remix the first single off his forthcoming eleven-track Resurrected LP.

"I'm so glad I got Dillon on board for this remix as it needed that special touch to bring it back into the current sound," he says.
