Morten Aamodt, the London-based artist otherwise known as Dillistone, has been rapidly growing in popularity over the past year, and is looking to make his mark on the rising Indie Dance scene in 2016. In 2015 he successfully introduced the United Kingdom to his unique mixture of synth-wave and hip-hopinfused productions, often featuring his own highly distinctive vocal work. Enjoying a wave of successafter4 viral Soundcloudhits, including ‘Sad & High‘ and the ‘Diamond Child EP‘, Dillistone is back in a big way with a huge 3-Track EP titled ‘Furnace‘.
Born in Copenhagen, Aamodt was extracted from his homeland at a very young age, moving to bustling Shanghai, where he experienced the melting pot of nationalities and culturesthat make up Asia’s largest city. With an emerging music scene primed for experimental sounds, Aamodt (then 16 years old)realized his opportunity and began DJ’ing club nightsin and around the sprawling metropolis. Having recently relocated to the United Kingdom, the young producer, now known as Dillistone is making his presence felt amid the ever-expanding dance scene in the greater London area.
His ‘Furnace’EP features 3 new, and wholeheartedly diverse tracks, all of which maintain Dillistone’s signature Indie Dance inspired sound. Grounded in a singer-songwriter stylized base, the EP evolves with heavy electronic undertones and manipulated vocal-cuts, creating a cathartic atmosphere balanced with thoughtful lyrics. The EP kicks off with the title track ‘Furnace’, a vocally centrednumber featuringdeep swelling synths, which guideAamodt’s vocals throughout the entire song. His second effort on the project,‘Midas’ features vocalistLili N, andcombines indie-electronica with sharply mixedhip-hop percussion, giving the timeless sound a modern touch. ‘Move On’,the EP’s final track, is an instant classic focusing listeners in on Dillistone’s prominent vocals, synth-heavy production, and undeniably heartfelt lyrics.
Since 2015, Dillistone has consistently found his productions atop the storied Hype Machine charts, and has received support from markets all across the globe.
