Dylan Montayne’s “Oasis” Background:
On ‘Oasis,’ Dylan Montayne teams up with Hawaiian reggae producer Breydan Torres and California-native E.N Young to create the 5-song EP that is said to carve out it’s own niche while bridging reggae & hip-hop a long a back drop of urban influences paired with island vibes to create something energetic, yet altogether laid back. Passionate, but passive. Invigorating and relaxing complimented by Bass-laden riddims and a diverse array of percussion.
“Oasis” truly lives up to its name -– it is a bright spot of life and growth that stands out from the rest of the musical landscape and provides a refuge for Reggae and Hip-Hop fans alike,” Dylan describes.
With the titled track, “Oasis,” Dylan explained to The Pier that the song came about while traveling from Denver to San Diego to work with E.N Young at Imperial Sound Recording Studio. During his travel, he reflected on his entire musical journey and:
“…Through all that, the actual act of songwriting was always an ‘Oasis’ for me. It was always the part of being a musician that I loved the most,” Montayne explains. “I wrote this entire EP either out on the balcony of my house or skateboarding around Denver at night — writing music I loved, knowing that I was about to go work with one of my favorite producers in the world — it was all very inspiring to me. Those places were my oasis… at the core of it, ‘Oasis’ is about my love for songwriting and the freedom I feel while doing it.”
The new EP is said to drop October 13th on iTunes and all digital streaming services. We’ll continue to catch up with Dylan Montayne to see if we can get a peak into more of his music to share because we’re new fans!

Dylan Montayne Background:
Raised in the cultural melting pot that is Santa Fe, New Mexico, Dylan Montayne has been immersed in musical styles from around the globe from a very young age. A drummer since infancy, he studied everything from Jazz to Latin percussion, culminating in traveling the world as a member of both a Scottish Bagpipe Band and the University of Notre Dame Marching Band Drumline. Eventually trading his drums for a USB microphone, Dylan Montayne began writing and recording hip-hop songs in his dorm room at Notre Dame –- by senior year, an average night included hopping on stage in front of hundreds of fans and then heading straight to the library to write a Theology paper. He has shared stages with artists such as Big Sean, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, the Flobots, Fortunate Youth, and Passafire. Now, with Denver, Colorado as the backdrop, the 25-year-old artist is set on spreading his music and message to the masses, with the ferocity of a newcomer and the lyrical depth of a veteran.
