Dionte Wilkins, professionally known as Colorado Myrical, is an American hip-hop recording artist and songwriter signed to Absolute Music Group.
Born and raised in Denver Colorado, Dionte grew up in a city where hip hop wasnt highly glorified or supported, especially as a local artist, but with 15 years of recording experience, Myrical has cultivated a fan base of Motivators that spreads from his home town, to the coasts of Puerto Rico. Coming up listening to artist like Ludacris, Jay-Z, R.Kelly, Usher, Trey Songz and Bone Thugs and Harmony, his range and style is like none other. His tonal presence and catchy, melodic flow will make you feel and remember every word. From working with big names in his city to well known names in the industry, Myrical not only holds his own, but leaves his mark on any song he’s on.
Influenced by greats like Snoop Dogg, P.Diddy, Master P and Birdman, Dionte has always had his vision set on being a business owner. He started a group called “The Box Boys” and released “Slapper House vol.1” in 2008 that not only set the tone but broke barriers and shinned a light on the young-local scene in Denver. As all good thing must come to an end, the group split and focused on solo careers, but his dream of being a successful label owner never changed. In 2011 he co-founded Absolute Music Group and hasn’t slowed up yet.
Whether you need some motivation, going through a break up or just feeling good about life, Colorado Myrical is sure to be a name, sound and artist you will never forget.

When Unique called Kid Astronaut after his announcement Unique asked:
Unique: “Do you have anything to say to the fans, not just the fans, the independent artists that’s been trying to get on this show, cause there’s a lot of independent artists that’s been trying to bless the stage…what kind of advice can you give them right now?”
Kid Astronaut: “Man, you just got to keep going y’know? It’s a journey and I’m still not where I want to be, but opportunities like this definitely show that I’m on my way and y’know, any artist that’s reaching for something you’ll have those moments, just keep diving in!”
Kid Astronaut said that beautifully!!
