18-year-old Dici is a rising young rapper/producer who truly knows the results of hard work.

A picking pattern on the digitized strings sets the stage for what is in store before Dici starts rapping. This is followed by a simple but stimulating drumbeat, after the first round of the chorus. Different layers of the track join, making this urban hip-hop and EDM single one that easily gets people moving. But there’s a whole other layer beyond that, and for those who pay closer attention to Dici’s word, they will hear his heartfelt plea to spend the night with a special someone.
The song is cleverly titled – Dici describes all the potential he sees for “you and I” to be together. He makes it clear that he hopes they will be together through all the good and the bad.
Part of what makes the video for ‘u n i’ so entrancing is the lighting used to focus the attention of the viewers on Dici. Much of the setting in the video is dark, but there is always a spotlight facing, or silhouetting Dici, creating a cool effect. This is particularly evident when Dici makes eye contact with, and performs to the camera; he appears to be opening up to the viewers, sharing his feelings and aspirations. From other angles, his expresses himself through his music with a confidence that is is impossible to ignore. Dici raps as if he is alone in his room with no one listening, yet, for viewers everywhere, Dici’s connection to this song is indisputable.
