Known as a fierce and versatile lyricist, DeeWunn brings forth his own hybrid sound creating a different dimension and meaning to the budding genre of “Yardcore”. DeeWunn sharpened his skills in Spanish Town where he would meet fellow hip hop enthusiasts who not only inspired his creative process but also helped groom his artistic prowess. Forming one of Jamaica’s premier hip hop crews, DeeWunn became an invited member of Da Colony which eventually went on to be better known as 13th Tribe.

DeeWunn was quickly scooped up as a songwriter and vocalist by the infamous Ward 21 with whom he spent time penning songs for in-house artists such as Timberlee, Natalie Storm, Marcy Chin and more. He then found himself making the unanticipated trip to Portland, Jamaica, where he was contracted as a songwriter by the legendary GeeJam studios where he would pen material for artists such as Mystic Davis, Charlie B, A-Game, Nailah, Nordia Baker and more.

In the time spent with Ward 21, DeeWunn featured on and produced a bevy of personal recordings ranging from mixtape material to original productions including standout singles such as Mic Magician, In The Ghetto, Jamdown Startup and the now certified viral hit, Mek It Bunx Up.

Mek It Bunx Up was produced by Kunley McCarthy of Ward 21. What started out as a challenge to a running joke churned out an unexpected success that even Deewunn himself did not see coming. Attracting attention from DJs like Diplo, Seani B, ZJ Johnny Kool, Massive B and more, Mek It Bunx up has been spun on major radio stations and in some of the hottest nightclubs across the globe. The song has also sparked an online dance craze after Parris Goebel, choreographer of Justin Bieber’s Sorry music video etc, recorded an impromptu performance to the single for Youtube alongside students from her famed Urban Dance Camp. Since her original upload there have been hundreds if not thousands of unique, independently made videos by dancers from around the world with combined views well into the millions.

Join us at Red Room on Feb 28th to see DeeWunn performing live in Vancouver for the first time!
