Introducing late year, this self-titled EP is the product of a long-term friendship between producers dilip (Dilip Venkatesh) and otxhello (Othello Houston). The duo draws comes from two different worlds. Their two distinct coasts and cultures have impacted their music.

dilip grew up in the Bay Area. He is extremely musically talented. For instance, dilip played the tabla, mridangam, Indian flute, and konnakol, slowly experimenting with and infiltrating into a more electronic environment. On the flipside, Massachusetts native otxhello played the drums for his church. This can be heard as an audible influence within the layers of hip hop and jazz he incorporates into his production. late year is the further collision of the two producers. The group transports listeners to a distinct new world, light years away.
