Dilz - Single Review: Wait On You Ft. J.Williams & TY

07 Feb 2018 // A review by ShelleySketch

This song is about being in a toxic relationship and what made it so toxic. The music is somewhat what you would expect, a bit of piano and a hip-hop beat. But the music flows well with the smooth vocals and rap verses. J. Williams provides his smooth vocals to the chorus which breaks up the rap verses from Dilz and TY. Dilz comes in on the first verse, his raps are straight forward and clean with the weight of his words coming through. Thereís no surprise TY knows what heís doing, with his verse also providing a range of flares.

Dilz has provided a simple, yet beautifully shot, lyric video to accompany the release of Wait On You. The video clearly shows the male leaving a toxic relationship with the female. The male character wants to get away but at the same time he seems uncertain if he really wants to leave her. Wait On You seems like it is a somewhat personal track for Dilz. But it is definitely a song I am sure people will relate too.

Wait On You also makes me think of the music by Smashproof and J. Williams that I used to listen too. Dilz is definitely someone to keep an eye on. Regardless of what it is about, Wait On You is a great track

5/5 stars

About Dilz

Dilz is a rapper from New Zealand with a fresh voice on Hip-Hop. Working endlessly on collaborations and mixtapes from the start of his career as an amateur rapper, Dilz has grown into a professional ready to break his way into the forefront of underground hip-hop.

Dillon Lamb is the man behind the name 'Dilz', though with a few listens to his bars you couldn't make a distinction. Like all great artists, Dilz is a reflection of the real person behind the mic, and this realness is what has attracted a growing number of music lovers to his sound and words. In an era of 'unconscious' music being popularized, this artist has found a way to stand out as a conscious and thought-provoking lyrical virtuoso before releasing his first official record.

While most artists base their success on profit gained, Dilz has build a reputation for himself by finding success in reaching people. His most viewed track on YouTube entitled Heal the Wounds, has reached hundreds (if not thousands) of young people struggling with self-harm. Stats like this are more important than chart status or profit margins - this shows in his music and his relationship with the fans.

Times x Two - EP Review: Late Night Legacy
26 Jun 2018 // by ShelleySketch
Times x Two have been somewhat of a staple in the New Zealand festival scene for a while, but they have now stepped up and are showing NZ just how big they can be with the release of their new EP Late Night Legacy. The EP cover art is strong and regal, with Cader and Zee against a rich red background; somewhat of a reflection of the objective of the EP itself, as there are some solid tracks that are sure to blow up.

Thomston - Single & Video Review: Acid Rain
25 Jun 2018 // by ShelleySketch
Thomston has been rather absent from the public eye lately but decided to surprise us by releasing a new single and video for Acid Rain.  The single cover art has somewhat a very retro feel, thanks to the clothing choices of a metallic button up with cream pants used in the image.

With his most recent single release in 2017, Mitch James has returned with a beautiful acoustic track entitled 21. The music is a simple accompaniment of a piano and a guitar, with what sounds like a finger snap or clap.
