Ian Hansen

dylxn, who released the single, “is this how it all falls apart?” on February 9th, is already gaining traction and isn’t showing signs of slowing down. His ability to let his vocals shine through impactful songwriting is an ability not everyone can accomplish, and has already come a long way since debuting his first single here at Sheesh. Get to know dylxn below:

You just released your new single, “is this how it all falls apart?” Take me through the creative direction.

I had the line “is this how it all falls apart?” written down in my notes app and knew I had to write a song around it. In terms of writing, it’s really just a reflection of my relationship. I was at a point when I knew I wasn’t putting in the effort I should have to the most important person in my life. In terms of production. I wanted to keep it relatively bare and let the vocal and songwriting really carry the emotion of the song.

What do you want fans to take away from your music?

Honestly, I just hope that people can feel something while listening. Whether that be relating to a specific lyric or even if they just like how a song sounds and enjoy listening to it, that would be fantastic.

You have a lot of emotion in your tracks, how therapeutic is it to be able to write about your emotions and put it into music?

Extremely. I’ve never been good at expressing emotion and often keep it inside and let it build up to a point where it needs to be released. Music is a great way to get that out and I definitely notice a difference in stress levels after I’m able to free some of that emotion from my body.

What got you into making music?

I’ve always been a huge fan of music and have played instruments (piano, trumpet, drums) since I was young. My friend’s brother eventually introduced me to Ableton which got me started with production. I started producing remixes of songs I liked for a while and eventually took a multiple year break. What inspired me to get back into it was watching Jon Bellion’s Making Of series on youtube. It is incredibly inspiring watching someone who is absurdly talented show their process of creating a piece of art that you already love so much.

How did you find your sound and what or who inspired it?

While starting out, there was a lot of EDEN, Jon Bellion, and Chelsea Cutler inspiration but it’s moved toward artists such as Jeremy Zucker, Verzache, brakence, and remy. I’m also still extremely inspired by people around me that I’ve met through music. There are far too many to mention without leaving people out.

Who are some dream collaborations?

Of course anyone mentioned above, but to add a few; Samuel Petra, Ryan Hall, torr, and Alexander23.

2022 is still fresh, what goals do you have for this year?

I’d love to continue to consistently release good music. I also want to meet more people and maybe do some more collaborations. I don’t have any particular numbers I’d like to hit. As long as I’m growing slowly but steadily, that’s okay with me.

Where do you want to be in five years with music?

I’d like to be doing music full-time in some fashion. It would be great to be doing it as an artist, but even if it’s something else in the industry, I really want to make a living doing something I love and think I’m relatively good at.

Hobbies outside of music?

I like playing with my cat, playing video games, and spending time with the people I love.
