You have no doubt heard of the OWSLA crew comprised of Dillon Francis, Kill The Noise, Porter Robinson, Skrillex, Sub Focus and Zedd, the group of dance music producers who are taking the world by storm as of late. Skrillex has a grammy, Zedd’s “Spectrum” is arguably one of the most popular songs around, Porter Robinson is one of the fastest rising young producers in the world, and Dillon Francis is essentially the king of the Moombahton subgenre. Aside from their individual accomplishments, the producers are all good friends. They tour together, tweet one another constantly, and support each other in their production endeavors.
