DEAN started as an underground rapper, venturing into songwriting under the name Deanfluenza. He composed for some of popular K-Pop groups around 2013 such as EXO (“Black Pearl” and “Unfair”) and VIXX’s (“Voodoo Doll”).

In 2015, he debuted in the US with the track “I’m Not Sorry” which features Grammy award winner Eric Bellinger. In the same year, DEAN released songs in Korea such as “I Love It” featuring rapper Dok2, and “Pour Up” featuring BLOCK B’s leader ZICO.

DEAN’s first EP “130 MOOD: TRBL” was released a year after. DEAN also worked with various Korean stars including Girl’s Generation’s Taeyeon, and several solo artists such as Heize, Crush, Zion T., Dynamic Duo, and Lee Hi, among others. His 2017 track “Instagram” also received immense success, as it placed #1 in Korea’s music charts.

SAAY, whose real name is Kwon Sohee, was a member of a hip-hop girl group Evol. In 2013, she eventually started as a songwriter and producer and wrote four songs for Henry (of Super Junior) when SM Entertainment expressed interest in SAAY’s songwriting talent. In 2016, SAAY signed as a solo artist to Universal Music Korea.

DEAN last came to Manila in 2016 for a Philippine tour promoting his debut EP “130 Mood: TRBL.” More than 1,200 fans called REBELS attended his showcase at the SM City North EDSA Skydome.
