The ShortListen: Dylan Williams (no. 281)

Who? Dylan Williams

What’s the story? The clocks have gone forward, the weather's getting better, and it's finally time to turn our attention towards the search for some bangers to soundtrack your upcoming summer. First among them is this great piece from newcomer Dylan Williams, a model who was discovered at the tender age of 21. Still only 23, he's now turning his attention to his primary artistic passion - music - releasing two excellent tracks on Soundcloud. This track, Vibe, manages to deftly combine an old-school De La Soul vibe with a Tinie Tempah-esque delivery to create an irresistible sunkissed feel. Another track, Changes, proves he can do darker too, but get this one on your car stereo, put the top down and pretend you're in LA (unless you actually are in LA).

For fans of: De La Soul, Tinie Tempah, Chip

In three words: Summer sunkissed groove
