Dillon Francis will be headlining his first show as DJ Hanzel this December in Los Angeles.
The ingenious house and techno alter-ego created by Francis in 2013 emerged via short social media clips and quickly grew into an electronic music world phenomenon.
Not only is Hanzel a hilarious, self-aware parody of the jaded underground German DJ caricature, but a brilliant way for Dillon to explore his tastes in deeper genres without altering his brand or confusing his fanbase.
Until now, Dillon's Hanzel character has only made short appearances intermittently throughout random performances and at his milestone set in The Lab LA alongside Drezo.
DJ Hanzel's headlining 'One Deeper' show will take place on December 22 at Exchange LA.
