Have a day, Dillon Francis.

In celebration of his 34th birthday, the beloved dance music producer and jokester has dropped his third album, Happy Machine. In terms of its sound, the record is a far cry from Francis' rowdy 2014 debut, Money Sucks, Friends Rule. But that doesn't make it any less impressive.

Spanning eight tracks, Happy Machine is a song-cycle of bubbly house music. It's a warm hug after a lonely pandemic, and a clear attempt by Francis to subvert his fan-favorite sound in favor of one that showcases his growth. And isn't that what we should all be doing after a period of isolation?
