In the gripping suspense of a summer fling, talented pop urban sensation Dici holds onto the season’s inevitable hopes and promises on his new delightfully catchy single, ‘200 Miles,’ out July 28th, released via his very own record label DICI Records. Hailing from Italy and raised in Miami, the half-Japanese star is ready to spread his wisdom and blissful tunes across the UK with a new set of July tour dates.
The soft trickling guitar chords instantly transform you into nostalgia, romanticizing what once was and what might be. ‘200 Miles’ portrays Dici yearning for open roads and endless opportunities. Aligned with his previous light-hearted line of releases such as ‘Dopamine,’ ‘Daydream,’ and ‘Champagne Showers,’ Dici hopes to inspire playfulness and for everyone to cherish the current moment.
Excited to be back on UK soil, Dici details ‘200 Miles’ inspiration: “200 Miles is about going on a road trip with a girl during the summer. It’s about the excitement and anticipation of driving to the place you are going to be vacationing. It’s a bright, catchy, happy song that is easy to sing along to. I think many people can relate to it. I’m sure many of us have gone on a road trip whether that is across the country or to a nearby beach. I’ve been performing this song at shows for quite a while now, but I’m excited to finally be able to properly release it for everyone to hear. It has also been amazing to perform this song in front of people in the UK. I feel like the audience likes it and tends to get excited when they hear it. I’m very happy to be able to perform in front of many people throughout the UK, and I hope they enjoy watching me perform. I hope to have just as amazing of an experience this month as I have previously done shows in the UK”.
‘200 Miles’ will be the newest addition to his captivating signature blend of melodic pop and hip-hop anthems, which have already amassed an impressive 2 million Spotify streams across 100 countries.
Dici’s journey began as a quarantined 17-year-old, honing his craft by free-styling rhymes and mastering the Pro Tools rig in his bedroom. Now, he has emerged as a rising rap star, garnering thousands of followers worldwide and earning critical acclaim for his indie EP released under his own label. His recent UK shows, including the LeeStock festival (watch video here), caught the public’s attention with Dici’s strong stage presence and youthful uplifting demeanour. His music reflects the clear influence of artists such as Denzel Curry, Action Bronson, Mayhem Lauren, and Kenny Beats, as he skillfully matches their level of quality.
On previous releases, such as ‘305-INTERLUDE’, ‘Bar for Bar’, and ‘Vector’, Dici has worked with Associated Press and Emmy-winning director and cinematographer Brian Bayerl of Greendoor East Productions. Proficient at blending powerhouse beats and a soulful, melodic, sometimes hypnotic synth-generated flow, Dici is a name to watch out for before he blows up.
Dici is much more than a singer; he is an artist and craftsman who believes in hard work paying off. In the month of July, Dici will embark on a school tour across the UK, aiming to raise awareness about mental health and bullying while having conversations about accountability and hard work.
