Fresh off of his intoxicating collaboration with Alison Wonderland, electronic musician and producer Dillon Francis has joined forces with indie-pop artist Cuco for his next single “Fix Me.” The particularly groovy and ambient track debuted last Wednesday via Zane Lowe’s World Record show on Beats 1 and we haven’t been able to stop listening since.
The stupefying mix of Cuco’s vocals and Francis’ quintessential soundscape offers listeners a dreamy melody and smooth electro/RnB vibes.
Throughout the entirety of the song, Cuco—in both English and Spanish—begs his crush for a shot at love and assures her that he will do all that he can to win her heart, no matter how many saccharine texts and FaceTime calls it may take.
“‘Fix Me’ is a different piece from what I’m used to making but I’m really excited about it,” Cuco said in a press release. “I feel like it embodies a lot of how I feel and how my love life goes.”
In addition to its relatable storyline, this melodic tune also features something else that may be familiar to any audience: a sample from a 1993 Souls of Mischief song, “Cabfare.”
Francis discussed the making of the ballad on Wednesday’s World Record broadcast. “[Cuco] and I are both easygoing people and we’re down for whatever. I have this playlist I make called Surf’s Up, and Cuco was like, ‘Whoa, this is all music I listen to!’ Coming off of the Spanish album, this was a good song to go off of.”
Cuco’s coastal California tour kicked off earlier this week at the Observatory in Santa Ana, CA. Dillon Francis is currently touring the United States and Canada alongside Australian electronic dance music DJ, producer and singer Alison Wonderland.
