Explain who you are for those who dont know
I’m a 17-year-old Hip-Hop artist born in England and raised in the city of Bristol. I go by the name ‘dylhutch’ and have been making music for just over a year. I have been writing since the age of 12.
How did you get into music?
From a young age, I was brought up listening to a wide range of music from mainstream Pop to Hip-Hop, from Camila Cabello to Kid Cudi. However, my music is heavily inspired by artists like Juice WRLD, and The Kid Laroi who has only recently come into the international spotlight. I have always been invested in them, and I have always appreciated their music and views on the world.
What are you working on?
I recently released my debut independent 13 track album ‘Stuck With Me’ which I spent the final few months of 2020 working on. I push my emotions out to the world in the way I feel most comfortable, through music. Nobody is alone, and I hope the emotion I bring to my music helps my listeners realise that. I released a 3 song EP in July, titled ‘Attachment OD’ and after all the support I knew I had to expand the project into a full album. My favourite track from the album would be ‘Catastrophe’. The song was made last minute after my long-term relationship ended. The second verse was a freestyle I spontaneously performed in my car with my mates while we were discussing which artist would fit most appropriately for a feature. I ended up using my freestyle instead when everyone fell in love with the preview. The album is heading towards 100,000 streams across all platforms within a month of release, and with the support I’ve received, along with the opportunities I’ve embraced since the album, it is definitely set to be a success.
Are you planning anything big for 2021?
Currently, I’m planning a few months of multiple single releases of my best work yet. Since the album drop, I’ve been working harder than ever, and my vault of unreleased music holds so much potential that I cannot wait to share with my audience over the next few months.
Through stress, trauma, anxiety, and depression, I push my emotions out to the world in a way I feel most comfortable. It’s been a hard year and I hope what I bring for my listeners will help people understand there are others around them ready to listen and support through everything. Nobody is alone. The music I listen to and the music I create has helped me keep my head straight and keep moving forward no matter the issue. Heartbreak, addiction, and codependence lead the album’s content as I express what I’ve been going through with honesty, to help myself and others around me. Losing people around you cut deep, and so does losing yourself. Hold your loved ones close, and more importantly hold yourself close. “Sometimes heartbreak can save your life”.
