Dillon Francis took over the latest episode of BBC Radio 1's Diplo And Friends series, bringing along his alter ego DJ Hanzel as co-conspirator. Francis includes several tracks off his recently released EP This Mixtape Is Fire, such as his collab with Skrillex on "Bun Up The Dance" and "What's Your Name" with Calvin Harris. We also get an assortment of music from others EDM producers such as Flume, Zed's Dead and Porter Robinson.

The comedic DJ included in the podcast his new remix of tour mate Madeon's "Imperium", serving as the remix's official debut. His remix features the memorable synth melodies from the original, but has juxtaposed them against a harder edged backing, with glitchy, stuttering synths dominating the drops and hard hitting drum punctuating the shape-shifting sound design.
