Francis first rose to fame after gaining the respect of American producer Diplo and eventually collaborating on the song “Que Que”. His song “Masta Blasta”, originally a 130 BPM house track, was edited after inspiration from Dutch musician Munchi and eventually ended up as the moombahton track that brought him to fame.
In 2010, Francis released his Swashbuckler EP on Play Me Records. He has released works on multiple labels including Dim Mak Records, Mad Decent and OWSLA.
In February 2012, Francis became the first moombahton artist to achieve the number-one spot atop the Beatport Top 5 Releases Chart with the release of his extended play Something, Something, Awesome.
In late 2012, he embarked on his Wet & Reckless tour across North America, as well as supporting the English electronic-music trio Nero on their Welcome Reality tour and English musician Flux Pavilion on his Standing on a Hill tour.
In 2013 he announced a headlining ‘Wurld Turr’ across the USA and Canada, as well as confirming that his debut album would be released in 2013. He also gained prominence by being announced as one of MTV Clubland’s Artists to watch in 2013, alongside acts such as Kill The Noise and Otto Knows.
He is currently working on his debut studio album and has confirmed that it will include “Drunk All the Time” and a collaboration with RiFF RaFF.
