Dillon Francis – Say Less (feat. G-Eazy) [Freccero Remix]

No Comments Music

Here is my Jazz House remix of Say Less by Dillon Francis featuring G-Eazy! The original track is an absolute banger, blending Hip Hop, Electro House and Break Beat all into track. For this remix, I decided to keep the Electro House vibes, but add in some jazzy elements to make it more funky.

Song Explanation

The original track is at 136bpm, which is very fast for a house track (hence why I said the original has some breakbeat elements). I decided, right off the bat, to slow this track down to 133bpm – even though that’s only 3 beats per minute slower, it really allows me to add certain elements without it seeming too fast.

The beginning of the track starts off with G-Eazy’s vocals, along with my own percussive groove. For this remix, I actually only used G-Eazy’s vocals, even though I had access to all the other stems in the track (I find that’s what I normally do, as I like to add all my own elements around the vocals of an original).

Then, I transfer the track into a downtempo point, blending some cinematic elements in the background with his voice, just so it’s in the forefront of the track. Then, as the track builds up, I bring in more elements, leading up to the drop.

Right before the drop, I bring in a trumpet, so that way it doesn’t seem as random on the drop. On the drop, I have a trumpet melody along with some of his vocals and a percussive groove. Then, on the second part of the drop, I bring in a funky vocal splicing melody groove in the background to fill more space and make it more funky.

The next two parts of the track are very similar to the first: Light elements in the verse (to highlight G-Eazy’s vocals), and then more elements on the drop to make it more funky and intense.

Most of my releases lately have been pretty intense, but for this remix, I wanted to make an upbeat track that’s funky yet not too in-your-face.

 

Lyrics

Yeah
Young Gerald, yeah, uh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Dylon, Dylon with the boom pow
Every week now I switch to a new style
Two 12’s in the back just blew out
Everything I do end up in the news now
Leave the club with a few now
Just some Hollywood girls and they do chow
I’m drunk, I’m drunk in the mood now
2 AM, what you wanna do now?
(What you wanna do now?)

Look baby, pass the Stella
Don’t spill on me, that’s Margiella
Got this Oakland game to tell her
Goddamn, she look familiar
Think we hooked up at Coachella
What’s her name? Isabella? Isa- uhhh… forget it

That’s like a week ago
But we both know how weekends go
Tryna function, got some places we could go
Lock jaw got me speakin slow like yeah
I’m blessed on blessed
I don’t GAFOS
You tryna fuck?
Yes on yes on yes on yes

Say less
Say less
You ain’t got
You ain’t got
You, you, you ain’t got
Say less (yaw)
Say less

Ay girl, what it do do
If you got friends, cool bring a few through
No fun if the homies can’t have none
R.I.P. Nate Dogg shit is too true
And you know what I’m down for
Round 2, Round 3 into Round 4
Mood switched when she knocked at the front door
Next up was the uproar, yeah

Was like a week ago, but we both know how weekends go
Tryna tuck off got some places we could go
Swear she got the deepest throat like wow
She’s blessed on blessed
I don’t GAFOS
You tryna fuck?
Yes on yes on yes on yes!

Say less
Say less
You ain’t got
You ain’t got
You, you, you ain’t got
Say less (yaw)
Say less

Sheesh, what you sayin’? I don’t understand
Goddamn, I’m out my mind, I popped another Xan
Sheesh, I swear this lock jaw got me stuttering
Goddamn, girl, you so fine, I’d fall in love again
Sheesh, gettin’ faded is my favorite rush
Goddamn, you talkative, ain’t gotta say too much
Be quiet, who got some grapes? I’m tryna roll some trees
Goddamn, uppers and downers, I’m off both of these
Gettin’ faded, not complicated
Too sedated, no conversation
Gettin’ faded, not complicated
We too sedated, no conversation
Please say less
Please say less
Please say less

I’m blessed on blessed
I don’t GAFOS
You tryna fuck?
Yes on yes on yes on yes

Say less
Say less
You ain’t got
You ain’t got
You, you, you ain’t got
Say less
Say less
Say less
You ain’t got
You ain’t got
You, you, you ain’t got
Say less

Have your say
