DΞΔN – a South Korean future R&B artist and Multi-Platinum songwriter. DΞΔN began his musical journey as a hip-hop artist at age 16, beginning his career as part of a crew with Korean rapper Keith Ape (whose single ‘It G Ma’ boasts over 18 million YouTube views), but by the age of 18, DΞΔN discovered his talent for singing and his gift of creating infectious melodies. Now having written chart toppers for K-Pop boy bands such as VIXX and EXO, DΞΔN has already proven himself as a successful hit maker. Recently DΞΔN wrote ‘Unfair’ for EXO and ‘World Tour’ for Lee-hi in 2016.

DΞΔN is committed to becoming one of the greatest cross-over acts to break onto the music scene both in Korea and the U.S. DΞΔN has worked with several in-demand artists and producers such as Mr. Camack, DJ esta of Soulection, Anderson .Paak, Eric Bellinger, EXO, Crush, ZICO and more.

In July of 2015, DΞΔN released his first English single, I’m Not Sorry, featuring Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter/producer Eric Bellinger. To-date, the video has racked over 1.5M views on YouTube, creating a huge buzz for the cross-over artist. With the second Korean single Pour Up (Feat. ZICO) he received the Best R&B/Soul Song of the Year by the Korean Music Awards, one of the most recognized and respected awards in the country. It is unusual for a rookie to achieve this kind of recognition.

His recent Korean single What 2 Do (feat. Jeff Bernat, Crush) released on 28th Jan 2016, ranked top 11 on the MELON chart (No.1 digital retailer’s chart in Korea) putting him in the Top 20 along with other well established Korean stars such as Zion. T, Zico, IU, Beenzino, Taeyon from GG and followed by more superstars like Big Bang, Sam Smith, Maroon 5 and EXO in the Top 100.

”130 mood : TRBL” is DΞΔN’s very first EP including three previously-released tracks, I Love It (Feat. Dok2), Pour Up (Feat. ZICO), and What 2 Do (Feat. Jeff Bernat, Crush) with four new tracks: And You? (Skit) (Outro), Bonnie & Clyde, D (Half Moon) (Feat. Gaeko), and 21. The meaning of title is – ‘130’ is kind of symbol of James Dean as he put the number 130 on his car. It is revealed that DΞΔN has been inspired by James Dean. ‘TRBL’ stands for ‘trouble’ and it’s from DΞΔN’s nickname ‘DΞΔN TRBL’. The whole album is in reverse order of one man’s love story, from falling in love with a 21-year-old girl to suffering heartbreak, which seems to be a part of our life. It will win the sympathy of the listeners through his storytelling.

DΞΔN will soon be showcasing his talent at many of the industry’s major upcoming events and festivals including a Promo Tour in the Philippines.
