There is a lot of electronic music in the world today. With Apple’s Garageband including synthesizers and millions of popular songs getting an electronic makeover, the genre is blowing up and there is no end in sight.
Dylan Iuliano, a 20-year-old Italian electronic musician, has been writing and producing songs since he was 14. Although in those years he was known as Verdeiride and Lumina Solis, he has since changed his name to The Delay in the Universal Loop and has released his second album Split Consciousness.
If you can’t tell by the name, this is some “get high and dance” type of music. If you don’t get high though, that’s okay. It is possible to enjoy Iuliano’s music sober.
A lot of electronic music is all about the drop. The point where the buildup ends, the music cuts out for just a second and then the bass hits hard.
But Iuliano’s music isn’t like that at all. It is synthed-out, trippy and bass heavy, but he focuses more on the feel of the music and the total sound rather than making the audience scream and jump along with him.
The Delay in the Universal Loop is wise beyond his years and knows how to make an excellent album. Even the most uninterested listener would have to give him credit for his producing and compositional abilities. I really hope that this is the new direction of electronic music as it matures and transforms.
The album will be released on July 7, 2015 from Moon Sound Records.
