Numbers is the latest release from rising Hip-Hop head Dylan Joel. The new track recently made it’s premiere on triple j last week, Numbers has been getting daily spins on the station and has received praise from the likes of Bliss n Eso, 360, Thelma Plum and Mantra.
Produced by platinum selling hit maker Cam Bluff (Hilltop Hoods, Illy, Allday), Numbers delves into the dark side of the music industry, shedding light on how we’ve traded artistic quality for quantity – spending more time focusing on tweets, Facebook ‘likes’ and reposts than a musician’s actual talent and sound. Dylan’s strong tongue-in-cheek lyrics, sometimes in double-time, blend with his soulfully layered vocal harmonies (because this rapper can also sing, for real)!
Fresh off national support slots with artists like Bliss n Eso and Illy, Dylan will be hitting the road in December with US rap phenomenon Watsky (touted as being one of the fastest rappers in the world) as the main support for his east coast run of shows. Dylan Joel’s debut album is slated for an early 2015 release through It’s Official Music/Warner.
