Young wordsmith, Dylan Joel will be releasing his debut album Authentic Lemonade on August 28th, and from what we’ve heard so far, it is sure to inject some much-needed funky fresh beats into your winter.
The Melbourne hip-hop artist offers natural talent as a true Aussie emcee; one that Australia is perhaps due for. His latest single, What’s Good has a real sing-a-long vibe and is undoubtedly a track that crowds will go wild for at his live shows.
What’s Good is backed by an all-star band, including drummer Tim Coghill (Matt Corby’s, Brother) and New York trumpet player, Igmar Thomas (Talib Kweli, John Legend, J. Cole). Dylan Joel certainly hasn’t put a foot wrong with this high-energy anthem.
Aside from his palpable talent as a rapper, what is possibly most notable about Dylan is his philanthropic efforts. Instead of a traditional music video for What’s Good, he has organised a Pop Up Op Shop which kicked off in Melbourne on Sunday July 5th.
Dylan says, “in replacement of filming a standard video clip for 'What’s Good', we (my team, friends and I) thought we’d use our time, resources and budget to raise some desperately needed funds for the rebuilding the communities damaged by the effects of the recent earthquakes in Nepal…Our lives are full of opportunities that majority of the world don’t unfortunately get, so why not make the most of that?”
The once-off Pop Up Op Shop will be donating 100% of the money raised to the Australian Himalayan Foundation, which supports the many victims of the Nepal earthquakes. Pairing such a fantastic cause with this track is just perfect. What’s good? That’s good. Great, even.
Joel is currently touring the country with famed rapper, Seth Sentry and if you live anywhere in Australia (we mean anywhere), these boys will be coming to a town near you. Because the tour consists of a staggering 40+ dates.
