AYLØ Shines A Light On Depression 'DNT' DLT' Mixtape
AYLØ’s ‘DNT’ DLT’ mixtape is the long-awaited and highly anticipated follow up to his critically acclaimed 2017 mixtape and his 2016 ‘Honest Conversations’ EP before that.
AYLØ, as one of the seminal creatives pioneering this innovative fusion sound, is even more keen on highlighting the alté movement and community, rather than just the sound, which is why he brings fellow alté forerunners Fasina, PsychoYP, MOJO, Sugarbana, and Cheso, along for the ride, throughout ‘DNT’ DLT.’
Speaking about the inspiration for his DNT’ DLT mixtape, AYLØ says, “The mixtape is about believing in yourself and your ideas. It’s about maintaining confidence through it all you know. Like how the closest people to you sometimes are the ones that either don’t believe at all or they catch on late… after you’ve already been struggling, having to hear all the condescending shit that might be said about you and your career decisions.
Still it’s your life and your existence, so no one can tell you who you are unless you tell yourself that as well. It only becomes real when you make it real. So whatever it is… dnt dlt. Fight the depression. Know you’re not alone… and don’t delete. Don’t kill yourself, don’t delete yourself, you are abundant. Stay Alive. Please. Love”.
