After announcing a new album earlier this month, The Delay In The Universal Loop (aka Dylan Iuliano) has released a video for another new single, Drag Cop. Watch the video clip via YouTube below.

The Delay In The Universal Loop is the solo project of Italian producer Dylan Iuliano. Since releasing his debut on Jestrai in 2012, Iuliano left high school to tour internationally alongside Fennesz and Shigeto, net features along the way from Noisey, THUMP, and MXDWN, and serve as an art director for Benevento-based electronic arts festival 404: SPACE NOT FOUND. 

The new LP ‘Inner Capitalism,’ which is the follow-up to 2017’s ‘Esplendidos!,’ was announced earlier this month with single RGB.

“I felt the structure of the tracks and the fact that my music is kind of frantic (as a lot of people tell me) reflect the concept of internalized capitalism and of the accelerated fruition of art and entertainment of these times,” Iuliano said about the album.

Despite the four year span between albums, ‘Inner Capitalism‘ took shape quickly last year as Iuliano realized he wanted to make an album that simulated the dopamine-fueled, fantastical escape that internet culture provides from everyday life.

The album title refers to internalized forms of capitalism and the ways they affect mental health,” says Iuliano. “It’s like an inner parasite that makes you feel unworthy for believing the things you believe in, for being who you are beyond superstructures… the album is about exorcising all that anxiety in a way that was fun for me.”

Fittingly, Inner Capitalism operates like an endless scroll into the murkier parts of the internet, resulting in some of the most sonically widespread Delay songs to date. Drag Cop is, according to Iuliano, “the sum of my love for synthwave, synth pop, and pop punk,” which seems like a hodgepodge before considering the Flying Lotus-esque breakdown on RGB and chirpy glitch hop worship of Coincidence.exe preceding it on the album.

“I felt the structure of the tracks and the fact that my music is kind of frantic (as a lot of people tell me) reflect the concept of internalized capitalism and of the accelerated fruition of art and entertainment of these times,” Iuliano concludes.
