Deleswa aka Darrin Swafford started his musical journey as a young teen making pause mixtapes for friends in his neighborhood.
This hobby quickly evolved into the world of Hip Hop music, where he started out at the age of 15 as a street DJ along with DJ Sheik. A few years later after graduating from High School and enlisting in the military, Darrin had the opportunity to join forces with New York based DJ crews "Top Secret Productions" and "Trak II Productions", spinning vinyl in nightclubs during his time in Korea. Afterwards, Darrin decided to switch it up to pursue his passion of becoming a well respected music producer, starting out with only a Tascam 4-Track Cassette Recorder, a Yamaha X3500 keyboard, and later a Alesis SR-16 Drum Machine and Korg N264 keyboard workstation. Little did he know this was the beginning of what would later become known as Deleswa Productions. Additionally, during the span of time from 1992, when Darrin recommitted his life to Jesus Christ till 2016; he volunteered a significant amount of time toward worship services, including music workshops and concerts, all while serving as the lead Bassist for 2 churches in Korea, 3 churches in the United States of America, and 1 church in Italy.
