"I Say What's Your Name"

Bubbly, quirky, bouncy, effervescent...whatever you want to call Dillon Francis and Calvin Harris's new track, it's supercalifragilisticexpialidopeshit. From the beginning alarm clock ring, it demands your attention and does everything in its power to keep it for an entire three minutes and 49 seconds. Yes, the drops are some kind of wonderful too and are set up well by the immense amount of effort given to building up the energy pre-drop. I would understand if you called it formulaic, but on the other hand, it's a lot of fun and you can't deny the crazy amount of energy the track exudes.

I feel like at this point it's becoming old news, but Dillon's upcoming mixtape is seven straight shots of awesome lined up all in a row. It's got collabos with Skrillex, Kygo, Calvin Harris and Chromeo, which are all as promising as they look on paper. Living up to expectations isn't tough when you're making an album or mixtape without features, but including big talent and living up to the hype is a tough thing to accomplish. There aren't a lot of paid mixtapes worth staying up for at midnight to cop, but I'd make an exception for This Mixtape is Fire...#WhatsYourName
