Reliably informed

Here in the North East we’ve long been wise to the talents of Dylan Cartlidge. The Redcar rapper and multi-instrumentalist has been gaining fans across the pond as well as in the UK, with BBC 6Music and Radio 1 support, not to mention climbing the US Alternative Radio Chart.

Dylan’s passion for music and skilful genre subversion is at the fore of his new Yellow Brick Road EP, due for release on 14th August. The title track is a funky groove-laden paean to overcoming fear and self-sabotage, while recently released single Cheerleader tackles self-esteem and not conforming to stereotypes, complete with Dylan’s trademark lyrical manipulation, fast beats and hip-shaking rhythms.

Dylan’s ability to touch on raw subjects with sensitivity and poise is just one of the things that makes him so special; a deft lyricist, unafraid to lay his soul bare, his music demonstrates a profound respect for what’s gone before while being unafraid to rip it up and start again. This EP is surely only the start of what’s certain to be a stratospheric career, get on board now.
