Rising Australian Hip-Hop star Dylan Joel has been keeping busy. Along with putting in countless hours in the studio, preparing for his upcoming release ‘Authentic Lemonade’, the talented wordsmith has also been crossing the country, supporting such international artists as Pharoahe Monch and Hopsin, as well as iconic Australian Hip-Hop stars Illy and Bliss n Eso on their national tours.
Dylan’s combination of samples, live instrumentation, poignant lyrics and effortless adaptation from rap to vocal harmonies has heads turning and people talking. Taking on the role of singing his own hooks and melodies, Dylan pens his observations with lyrics discussing topics that most others fear to broach. His selflessness and vulnerability spills over in almost every song, and these traits are the defining element in Dylan being so much more than just a ‘rapper’.
"..have the best education yet something we're never taught, is that most pain in the world can be cured by support" – “Never Let Them Go”

Dylan is known for his unique take on Hip-Hop, standing out from the crowd with his rare approach to topics covered, and the vocal styles he uses to execute his work. His realistic and upbeat outlook on life is strikingly obvious, following the moral code from one of Hip-Hop’s founding father’s Afrika Bambaata: “Peace, Unity, Love and having fun!”
His live show performances have allowed audiences to experience not only his natural charisma but also his musical versatility, often incorporating a live 4-piece band, or performing solo accompanied only by an acoustic guitar. Having performed a selection of international events, most notably selling out his headline show in Toronto Canada, plus numerous festivals including Pyramid Rock and St. Kilda Festival, Dylan Joel has earned his stripes on the live circuit and then some.
Beginning his career in 2012, Dylan’s first EP ‘Kid Illin' featured the breakthrough single “Leveled” which received high rotation on triple j, and lead to the major win of triple j's ‘Pyramid Rock’ unearthed competition. This was followed by the release of the free album ‘That’s Good’ featuring an impressive list of guest performances from REMi, Elemont & Jess Wills, and was a subtle prelude to his soon to be released, debut Album.
Exclusively produced by Hip-Hop producer Cam Bluff (Hilltop Hoods, Illy, Allday), Dylan’s upcoming release incorporates live players, representing his maturity as an artist but also his musical journey since 2012.

This dynamic and individual approach to Hip-Hop highlights his rebellious stance within the scene, and with his exceptionally tailored poetic talent and musical prowess, Dylan Joel continues to prove his worth to fans and peers.
"Dylan speaks his words bravely and honesty, but also with great humility. One of Australia's most unique and promising emcees for sure." - Mantra
"Dylan is a true leader of the new school. He represents a generation that a lot of artists are losing touch with. Plus, he can rap like a mother f**ker." - Grey Ghost

This is a great one from Dylan's latest mixtape. Really keeps things minimal on the production so you can focus on the incisive, charismatic raps.

Reminds me of summer days growing up in the suburbs, riding my bike round the streets. This tune makes me very happy.

I wish it was the summer of 2003 so I could hop on a pushie and cruise down to the servo to get a callipo with this blasting on my first generation iPod and me feeling like a deadset legend. Dylan, you've nailed this.
