Concert preview: Dillon Francis’ set should lurch with bass to spare

From the August 1, 2013 edition

The new Dillon Francis single, “Messages,” is an EDM pop song about texting (or tweeting, or Snapchatting, or who knows what else).

It’s a clever convergence of two current tech trends, and it ain’t bad for body-moving.

The Diplo protégé made his name as an early adopter in moombahton, the microgenre fusing reggaeton with house music, so his set Thursday at Sugar Bar 2 should lurch with bass to spare.
