Knock2 and Dillon Francis Unleash Rule-Breaking Collaboration, “buttons!”

Knock2 and Dillon Francis have always been stylistic rule-breakers at heart. Now they're breaking barriers once again after releasing “buttons!,” an unpredictable fusion of disco and bass house.

The two were seen pushing buttons together earlier in the month at the mainstage of Imagine Music Festival, where Knock2 etched his debut headlining performance with a back-to-back set alongside Francis. In the wake of that highly visible appearance the two have dropped their dynamic collaboration, which aptly embodies their knack for bucking conventional wisdom.

"buttons!" exudes party-starting potential from open to close. Knock2's penchant for energizing house music with a club edge shines through as the Class of 2023 star producer blows the doors off amid a flurry of memorable vocal hooks and ad libs. Stylistically the addition of funk and disco elements would ordinarily seem out of place in this context, though their inclusion proves seamless.

Knock2 said the track came about after Francis latched onto an early version of the demo late last year. Together, their big personalities fused to bring about one gangbusters release.

"When I saw Dillon followed me on Instagram it was surreal because he was one artist I had always looked up to. I admired how fun and creative his music was and it all matched his personality so well," Knock2 said in a press release. "I sent him a demo back in December and he ended up loving it, which is how the collaboration started. We got in the studio and he wrote the second drop which really completed the song. Buttons is a light hearted, fun track that represents both of our styles and weirdness."
