The talented Young DLC is the son of a popular Zimbabwean Gospel producer, and owener of VOJ Studios, music has always been a big part of his life. It would have been easy to follow in the footsteps of his father, but instead he went out on his own to work in EDM (Electronic Dance Music)
DJ Darlington Lazarus Chikwewo, better known simply as Young DLC has proved to be a big hit in the EDM scene. He is based in South Africa, an although the EDM industry is still getting established here, the young DJ feels enthusiastic about this genre of music growing in his country.
Young DLC has mentioned that the first production program purchased by his dad was a dance music program. This started his interest in that type of music, as well as the culture behind the music that you see at big festivals.
While he started out on the production side, a friend mentioned to him that he should DJ, that is when it really started.
Young DLC believes that you must live and experience music from other countries. Going into diverse environments and cultures, you can take all these elements, all these cultures, and begin to create your own music.
In 2018 he was afforded the opportunity to produce “Nge Thanda Wena”, which as since gone gold.
In addition to his work in SA, he has had opportunities to work with American artists, such as the award winning rapper, Desiigner.
With the experience he already has, the furture of Young DLC in 2019 looks promising.
