Attacking the dancefloor with speaker-ripping electro and a snarky sense of humor, Los Angeles-based DJ and producer Dillon Francis helped popularize the moombahton electronic genre in addition to embracing trap and dance-pop. Early releases such as 2011’s Westside! explored the fusion of Dutch house and reggaeton known as moombahton, and Francis pushed the style in a harder direction, dubbed moombahcore, with efforts like 2012’s Something, Something, Awesome. He delved into a wide variety of genres with the guest-heavy 2014 full-length Money Sucks, Friends Rule, a number two Billboard dance album, then focused entirely on Latin styles with the Spanish-language Wut Wut in 2018, which earned him back-to-back Latin American Music Award and Latin Grammy nominations for the song “Sexo” featuring Residente and iLe. Happy Machine, released in 2021, consisted of upbeat, vocal-driven house songs.
