Delus, Born Delmark St. Aubyn Spence Jr. on June 18, 1981, in Kingston Jamaica, Delus had a growing passion to fulfill a musical career. Growing up with his father Delmark Spence Sr. and his mother Winsome Spence he discovered his love for music as his mother’s weekend ritual was to play music loudly while cleaning.
Looking up to entertainers such as Buju Banton, Spragga Benz, Beres Hammond, it was not until after leaving Morant Bay High School that he decided to try and get the full understanding of his love, which is music. He started to hang out at studios but mainly the Youth Man Promotion/Black Roots Studio owned by Lincoln “Suga” Minnott. Although he did not record those times he experienced the studio environment.
His first recording was within the duo called Sojah with his brother, Garfield Delano Spence whose stage name is Konshens. Their first single was “Medz Pon Di Corner” on the Cash Flow label. It went 1 in Japan in 2004 where they went on tour and they released their debut album titled “Sons Of Jah”. Songs done by Sojah includes “Mi Mada” and “Segregation” on Cashflow Label; “Cyaan Draw Wi Out” on the In The Streets Label; “Real Love” on the Vertex Label; “Ratata” on the Open Ear Label. He then established his solo career in 2007 and as released singles such as “Nymphomaniac” and “Power” on the Cashflow Label and also “Move” on the Rapid Fire Label.
He is not only musically inclined but he also shows some interest in video graphing. He had shot and edited music videos for artistes like Bescenta, Warrior King; some medleys such as the medley with D’ Angel, Mr. Peppa, Delly Ranx, Sojah & Spragga Benz on the Womba rhythm and also videos for some young, upcoming artistes.
Delus is persistent and progressive and his music is provocative, as he tends to sing on every aspect of life. He does not consider himself as just a reggae/dancehall artiste but as “an entertainer who does music for all ears to listen”. He takes up the challenge by expressing his versatility throughout rap, R&B, lover’s rock, reality, roots & culture and the list goes on.
2016 update. Rest In Paradise Delus. Sad loss to the music industry.
