Delus is no stranger to the music. Adopting it from the age of 17, he has always been inclined to take on music as a professional career.
Delus, born Delmark St. Aubyn Spence Jr., in Kingston Jamaica, has grown around music. His mother is passionate about music, a sentiment also shared by his father and his younger brother Konshens, who is a fast rising young artiste.
Delus started out in the music business with a group called Sojah, a duo comprising his younger brother Konshens.
After leaving Morant Bay High School, Delus then walked the path several of Reggae’s biggest names walked in the initial stages of their careers. Delus started to hang out at several studios in the corporate area. He soon record his first single titled “Medz Pon Di Corner” on the Cash Flow label with his brother and within weeks it ‘shot’ to number one in Japan.
Delus is persistent and progressive and describes his music as boundless as he lyrically tackles aspects of life that other artistes usually tend to shy away from. He does not consider himself as just a reggae/dancehall artiste but as “an entertainer who does music for all ears to listen”.
According to Delus, it was love that inspired him to do music.
“Well the love of the music and the realization that I have a natural talent in terms of putting music together is what really draws me to it as a profession. I have been learning about music from about 1998, but it was in 2003 that I decided to start taking it professionally," said Delus who's presently in the process working on a deal with Dayne Music Group.
Delus has released singles such as “Nymphomaniac” and “Power” on the Cashflow Label and “Move” on the Rapid Fire Label since going solo in 2007.
Delus has also shot and edited music videos for some of dancehalls household names including Warrior King, D’ Angel, and Spragga Benz.
In terms of musical mentors, Delus look to the likes of Buju Banton, Spragga Benz, and Beres Hammond. However, in terms of a strong foundation he looks to his parents who he said encouraged his career choice.
“My parents never too frowns on me when I told them I wanted to do music. They always tell me to have something to fall back on, which I can understand as they always wanted the best for me.”
