What does DLT mean?
- DLT is a New Zealand DJ, music producer, composer & artist. Born Darryl Thomson in Maraenui, New Zealand. DLT was inspired by an article about rap and breakdancing in Life magazine when he was 16 years of age; he moved to Wellington in the '80s and established himself as a graffiti artist known as 'SLICK' before co-founding Hip Hop group Upper Hutt Posse. The ' Posse released New Zealand's first Hip hop record, E Tū, in 1988 and then moved to Auckland. Upper Hutt Posse signed to Murray Cammick's label, Southside Records, and released the album Against The Flow in 1989. Leaving the Upper Hutt Posse, DLT released two solo albums. The first, The True School, contained the New Zealand Number 1 single Chains. Chains was number one in New Zealand for five weeks in 1996 and featured the vocals of Che Fu. In the 1997 New Zealand Music Awards Chains was named Single of the Year and won the Best Songwriting award. Che Fu was named Best Male Vocalist. It was number 22 in the 2001 APRA listing of the Greatest New Zealand Songs of the previous 75 years.
