Sweet Neo-spoken-soul, is the infectious blend of groove, swag and often disarming fragility that confronts you as Dylema Collective oozes their way through their hypnotic set. Drawing on diverse musical influences – inevitable considering the diverse backgrounds of its members – you find Russian classicism, neo soul melodies meeting Latin American rhythms and spoken word poetry, all woven into London’s contemporary jazz and sound. Having enjoyed a first year including performances at London Jazz Festival, TEDx Brum, award-winning festivals Shambala and Brainchild and opening slots for Tank and the Bangas, Moses Boyd and Nubya Garcia, the collective’s 2018 looks like the year of their actual arrival, with a headline show at Roundhouse Rising Festival and support slot for RnB/Jazz/Electro duo Blue Lab Beats. With inspiring, empowering poetry flowing from Dylema’s lips and effortlessly between the group’s poly-rhythms and sounds, the future looks full of promise for this unique collective. Their Friday evening performance at Wilderness Festival 2018 will doubtless be an experience of magnetic proportions.
