dvr has released his new single and video ‘lowlife (with kenny beats)’, out now via XL Recordings / Remote Control Records. Filmed in North London and directed by Elif Gönen, dvr says of the video: “Was rly hot during the shoot so the running was a bit of an effort. Gd to meet Kenny tho, not v talkative but must’ve just been the nerves.”
dvr is Dillon van Rensburg, a seventeen-year-old songwriter and producer from North Berwick, Scotland. In 2020, he digitally self-released an EP (tape_01) and single (‘thru the city’) which quickly became organic, word-of-mouth success stories, racking up streams in the millions. With influences ranging from Tyler, The Creator, Frank Ocean and KAYTRANADA to Jimmy Hendrix and the Foo Fighters, dvr counted the likes of revered producer and songwriter Kenny Beats (who discovered dvr via fan enthusiasm on his Discord channel) and Snoop Dogg as early fans, with Kenny throwing his support further behind young Dillon by co-producing ‘lowlife’.
