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.

Gig Review: Drax Project @ The Powerstation, Auckland - 12/05/18
16 May 2018 // by ShelleySketch
On Saturday I arrived to The Powerstation, to see Drax Project play to a sold-out crowd, for the second night in a row! Due to this show being all ages, there were 2 long lines reaching out in opposite directions which steadily minimised as crowds made their way in.

Gig Review: Sleeping With Sirens @ The Powerstation, Auckland - 29/4/18
01 May 2018 // by ShelleySketch
Itís a Sunday night in Auckland and this show was adjusted accordingly, with set times being even earlier than scheduled. 5pm doors was a weird experience but at the same time it was a welcomed one.

As I arrived at Ding Dong Lounge it seemed rather quiet. But you could see it was going to pick up when a stag-do stumbled out.
