Young DLC’s Star Glowing Brighter.


As the Campus of Performing Arts-Pretoria student, Young DLC aka Darlington Chikwewo has jetted off to Nairobi, Kenya for Coke Studio Africa, his works back in South Africa seem to be gaining recognition by the day.

The 20 year old Electronic Dance Music producer and DJ is also rocking the airways via his debut collaboration with Sylent Nqo, enjoying high rotation on Algoa FM. The Young DLC produced-song, Be My Girl, is now on the Eastern Cape’s AlgoaFM Top 30 charts. A huge milestone for his first ever single to be placed on SA radio stations.

A fast rising EDM DJ on his own right, Young DLC will be working on some exciting collaborations with leading South African artists later in the year. His manager, Tendai Joe confirmed that some of the arrangements had been made before Young DLC left for Nairobi.  Young DLC has been working on collaboration productions with Tristan of December Streets and the project will be released separately later in the year.  There is also a potential collaboration with a top Afrikaans rapper and Bitterreinder in the pipeline.

The  former Boston City Campus Soul Candi School of Music student has also released his solo single, Cloud 9, which is already receiving favorable reviews from seasoned DJs and entertainment writers. Visuals for the single are already in post production and Joe says the video will be submitted to Music Channels before the end of June 2017.

Young DLC will be one of the Headline Acts at Treadfest SA, which will be held in December 2017 at Drakensburg Amphitheatre. Young DLC will be sharing the stage with Gangs of Ballet, Mathew Mole, Sketch Bongo, Francois Van Coke, Monark, Majozi, Locnville, Goodluck, Pit Fat, Chinda Munki, December Streets, The Kiffness, Ryki, Graeme Watkin Project, Yannick Meyer, The Sweet Resistance, Opposite The Other, DJ Wandile and others.

In 2016, Young DLC’s song Don’t Stop was published worldwide by a Netherlands Record Label. Young DLC was on Coke Studio SA 2016 where he produced for Aewon Wolf and Jade McDonald, their song is played on 5fm
Young DLC’s manager, Tendai Joe said,” Young DLC is an amazing artist, with an amazing talent. We have artists and producers from as far as Portugal, Japan and France inquiring about him due to his few instagram clips where he embedded his music. Young DLC will surely grow to be one of the best EDM DJs and producers out of Africa. I think his studies and whatever he is learning from Coke Studio Africa will set him apart from others. After all, he is passionate and loves his music”
