Dylan Fuentes, A Rose Among Thorns
Colombian artist Dylan Fuentes is diving full force into the Reggaeton scene in 2020. Musically gifted from a young age, he entered a music competition show, EL Factor X, in his homeland. After seeing the talent he possessed, his family decided to support and endorse his passion. Soon after, he also began to dabble in production, teaching himself how to create beats and compose. While growing at his other skills, he added one more as a performer. Through his father’s band, he became comfortable with a stage as he finishes their sets with some of his work. Dylan’s love of art was formed through the latter as opposed to in the studio. Which by the age of 15, he had already learned how to run one through and through.
Thus came his breakout track, “Ajena.” The song was formed at a music camp. Initially dismissed by his team, Dylan’s heart was in it, and he believed in the record. Once the track was presented to Myke Towers & Dayme y El High and they accepted the collaboration, it was backed with newfound interest. Dylan’s intuition was on the right track, and its success opened the doors to where he is now at NEON16.
Under NEON16, Dylan already has quite the impact during 2020 with Bipolar, Mente featuring Tainy & Mau y Ricky and TU AMIGA featuring Justin Quiles & Llane.” Dylan keeps the NEON16 branding consistent with no fuzz or attitude, just a home of pure talent. Despite being very capable of creating hits independently, he admits he prefers to focus on composing and song arrangement. Drawing inspiration from life, he is always sure to give his music a personal touch, leaving the production in the mastermind’s hands, that is, Tainy. Given his current trajectory of music released, the anticipation for a larger project continues to build. We were told an exclusive that many tracks had been just that. It’s only a matter of time till it reaches fans.
Most recently, dropping his latest hit “Noches de Soledad,” has already scored a cool million views on YouTube.
