Dylan Reese: The Complete Package



Around 2008-2009, Dylan Reese started to record in his bedroom. He talked about his beginning stating, “ I was making songs as a complete joke with a group of friends. They were more comedic/parody than anything else. But over time, I’ve learned that this is the best way I know how to express myself.” A couple of years later, Dylan soon learned how to work with music software and “the fundamentals of sound.” Dylan Reese has over 200,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and over 10 million streams on Spotify independently. 
Dylan is originally from Chicopee, Massachusetts, and currently resides in Los Angeles. When asked about the move from Massachusetts to LA, he said, “It was pretty seamless, to be honest. I knew that I accomplished what I could’ve in Massachusetts - both in Western MA & Boston. I was planning on coming to LA years in advance, so I had built some relationships here, which made it a lot easier. Also, I made the move with my best friend, Bobby Hobert, which also helped. We have separate skills/careers, but we kinda went through it together.”
Other than living in Massachusetts and LA, Dylan has been able to tour the country multiple times. He claims touring has been his most significant opportunity in music so far, specifically the tour he was on last year with The Holdup. Dylan mentioned, “ it was the first time I was exposed to a brand new audience at that scale every single night. I learned a ton & built other relationships that lead to other opportunities already.”
When you listen to Dylan’s music, you notice a potent combination of R&B/Pop and rap music. To show off his rap sound, Dylan has done projects like RAP DYLAN and soon released RAP DYLAN 2. When talking about the projects, he explained, “The first RAP DYLAN project was something I did pretty quickly, just to showcase my ability to rap because I felt that it was overlooked, due to all of the R&B/Pop music I was putting out. I built quite the core audience since the last time I put out some rap stuff, so that was important to me. On the sequel, which comes out on 8/7…I just wanted to have some fun, and apply new found songwriting knowledge to the hip-hop genre. So this series of songs is definitely more well thought out & complete. But still, just having some fun & talking some shit.”
Dylan Reese has recently prepared for the release of RAP DYLAN 2 by releasing a few singles off the project. They are “CRUCIAL,” “SWITCH,” featuring Futuristic, and “WTM” featuring Boston’s Boy Sammy Adams. Working with Sammy Adams was an excellent experience for Dylan. He elaborated saying, “This was huge for me. Being from Massachusetts, Sammy was someone I’ve always looked up to. When I put out the first single CRUCIAL, he reached out & wanted to work. We’ve crossed paths on tour in the past, but it was great to have that co-sign & support from him. We worked on the song via Facetime & it came together quickly. We both love the final product & plan to work together in different ways moving forward for sure.” All three of the tracks off of RAP DYLAN 2 have been successful thus far, be ready for August 7th when the project drops because it will undoubtedly be his best work!

I just want people to give the music a chance. I think if they do that they can get a sense for what I'm about and what the whole Lamp City brand is about. I want to inspire people to get the most that they can out of their own life. I feel that way because I myself want that too. I'm just trying to keep pushing and keep progressing in my life and music is my outlet to talk on that and to talk on everything I go through in life. If people can relat…

J Wavy

J Wavy didn’t grow up with a lot. He says, “My mom, my sister and I used to live in a shelter when I was like 7. We couldn’t always eat. I remember going to sleep hungry sometimes when my mom couldn’t provide. One time we had to use the oven as heat just so the crib could get warm whenever it was cold.” As a freshman in high school, J Wavy found music. Music was J Wavy’s escape. He would go to the studio regularly and quickly discovered his sound. Since then, he has released songs such as “Slide Thru,” “Company,” and “Thru It (Clueless) featuring Kingfrom98.”  As a kid, J Wavy never had anyone truly inspire him, but he had role models in music. He named artists such as Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Ne-Yo, Justin Bieber, and he would listen to a lot of Spanish music. The artist who had the most significant impact on J Wavy was A-Boogie. He said, “Soon as I got older around 13 or 14, I started fucking with a boogie wit da hoodie heavy. His sound is just different from everybody…
