Dylan received several awards and won in 2006 the Het Lindeboom competition for traditional music with the trio Troad. In 2007 Dylan founded the band Txütxükan, whose music was a collaborative work of compositions integrating elements of various musics around the world, mainly inspired by Balkan and Gypsy musics. The band lived in Ireland for 9 monthes to record a new album which released in august 2013.

He was funded by the "International gathering for trad clarinet" in Brittany to launch a new Irish Music quartet through residencies and concerts, to promote the use of clarinet within Irish music.
