Amazon Music’s “We’ve Got Company” will host DJ Dillon Francis
Amazon Music’We have company‘ will feature guest Dillon Francis in its second episode.
The new sitcom-themed talk show is hosted by Marc ‘Loop Daddy’ Rebillet and airs biweekly at 9 p.m. ET on the Amazon Music Channel on Twitch and in the Amazon Music app. For the second episode of the series, Marc is joined by the producer and DJ Francois Dillon. The first episode featured Grammy-winning Flying Lotus.
The new series is filmed on an elaborate set and plays with sitcom tropes to produce an unpredictable series. For 90 minutes, special musical guests come to visit Marc and are treated to snacks, video games, improv jams and an environment where the audience has as much control as the host.
“If you don’t want this show, I’ll be very, very upset. I mean I’m going to throw a full fit. I’m going to start throwing things in the air and yelling at dogs and young children if you don’t watch this show,” says Marc Rebillet. Rebillet quickly rose to prominence online through his livestreams on Twitch. Marc is a classically trained pianist and combines that with comedy, references and humor on Internet.
Marc embarked on a sold-out tour of the United States after the easing of pandemic restrictions. This tour led to high profile collaborations with artists like Erykah Badu, Reggie Watts and Flying Lotus. Reticket has also been booked at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado. Rebillet will begin their first European tour later this summer.
DJ Dillon Francis’ first major label in 2014 was Money sucks, friends rule. He followed this release with 2015 This mixtape is fire, which reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart. In 2018, Dillon released his second LP, WUT. WUT is a Spanish language album featuring some of the biggest names in Latin music. In 2019, Dillon Francis hit the road in the United States with sold-out shows and a huge performance at Coachella.
Amazon Music is working hard to integrate adjacent music content on Twitch into its app. Twitch has been working hard during the pandemic to give musicians a place to stream their music live and reach a whole new audience than just local broadcasts. SoundCloud partnerships have helped many artists accelerate their path to Twitch partnership so they can monetize their live streams.
