Iuliano's musical perspective is singular in its quirks, almost as if he is actually the result of some glitch in space and time that sent him from both the future and the past simultaneously. - THUMP

"The Delay In The Universal Loop is the music project of Dylan Iuliano, a 20-year-old guy from Campania that is destroying everything around the universe. This time we are facing a solid work, built around a personal aesthetic fearless of showing itself in every corner, and this effrontery rewards because the result is masterly." - NOISEY

Maybe it’d be easier for you to just say Dylan Iuliano. He’s the Italain producer who goes by the epic moniker of The Delay In The Universal Loop, and he’s just offered up a spastic new video for “Texan Daylight,” a track taken from his second album, Split Consciousness, that will be out in June on Moon Sounds Records.
“Texan Daylight” is all blown-out synth scrapes next to his more delicate, wooing vocals that then get high-pitched and jittery until suddenly the song devolves from irk-dance to minimal, analog synth rip-apart. The video offers similar analog frights, with old VHS clips of smiling, dancing people spliced into screen-snow oblivion. It was directed by Logan Owlbeemoth using a Tachyons+ Rainbowtronic machine, whatever that is.

All of which doesn’t seem to jibe with Iuliano’s explanation that the song’s inspiration came from a nice trip to the States and some good Mexican food. So we asked him to explain. Check his explanation, the video and tour dates below. - CMJ

Split Consciousness is already making headlines, because it's cool or because it is distorted and absurd, or because Dylan tries hard to displace the listener and drag him into its sonic and sensorial vortex, like the white rabbit with the poor Alice . - Noisey

"Disarmonia, is trippy, fun and shockingly mature, all at the same time. Is there something in Italy’s water? The Delay in the Universal Loop exudes such a scary amount of talent and potential that it’s hard to imagine what kind of damage he can make once he’s experienced the woes and wonders of being a 20-something." - MXDWN

"Disarmonia is another genre-defying release from Luliano , dipping its toes equally in abstract psychedelia, noise, electronica, new wave, dance and alternative rock, but the album never slots into any one team, instead allowing for Iuliano to keep experimenting with sounds, melodies and noises to further develop and strengthen his musical palette. That it rarely loses its organic, human touch on even its most synthetic-sounding songs is another of Disarmonia‘s strengths and something I suppose Luliano consciously aimed to create while recording of the album. What we have here in totality is an addictive blend of psychedelic warble, experimental electronic sounds, warm analogue instrumentation, moving vocals, and a very unique approach to songwriting. This is audial gold if you want it." - NH7

So, this 18 year old guy drops a crazy electronica mix that sounds pretty awesome. - Free Press Houston

Come ho già avuto modo di dire, io a Dylan Iuliano mi sono umanamente affezionata. Non lo conosco ma gli voglio bene. Per i seguenti motivi: ha diciott'anni ma non è hipster e non fa musica per hipster. Fa tutto da solo e fa un po' quello che gli pare. Vaga fra Nietzsche, Pitagora, Dostoevskij, smarrito nell'universo come un personaggio di Tarkowskij. Scrive testi che grondano quel turbamento tipico di chi è solito darsi malato all'ora di educazione fisica per imboscarsi in bagno a fumare e leggere Rimbaud. E annega questo disagio giovane in un magma di suoni pulsanti e riverberanti che si accartocciano in implosioni liriche e si distendono in irradiazioni psichedeliche. E fa annegare noi in una perversa nostalgia di quando eravamo giovani e infelici, e della nostra infelicità facevamo un vessillo di unicità e iperintelligenza, anche se poi il vessillo lo usavamo come plaid quando stesi sul letto da soli piangevamo amori e disamori cullati da Radiohead e Verdena. Per tutto ciò, perché mi fa venire voglia di tornare ad abbracciare un cuscino e sentirmi troppo sensibile e intelligente per questo mondo, io a Dylan voglio bene. Vogliategliene anche voi. - ROCKIT

After releasing  his debut album Disarmonia (2013) to critical acclaim, Iuliano left high school to tour extensively through Europe and North America in 2014.

As he set off on his second North American tour, he debuted "Texan Daylight" via CMJ as the first single off his sophomore full length, Split Consciousness.

Split Consciousness was released July 7, 2015 via Moon Sounds Records (digital/CD) and Dilated Time / Cemetery Sisters (cassette), the album was premiered by Noisey.

The videoclip for I'm Turning In The Wholeness was premiered on VICE's Thump, and in September Dylan toured Europe in support to the record, playing Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, France and Germany.

In October and November Dylan played some festivals across America, including CMJ in New York City
