FOUNDER | CEO of DELESWA PRODUCTIONS
Darrin Swafford aka Deleswa
Deleswa is Darrin Swafford, an indie music producer who started out making pause mixtapes for friends in his neighborhood and soon after became a street DJ at the age of 15 in Columbus, Ohio teaming up with DJ Sheik. He was also a Pop Locker and Rapper back in the early 80's when break dancing and boom boxes ruled the streets. 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 on the 1 and 2's during his time in Korea.
After about 6 years of DJing from when he first began, 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, an Alesis SR-16 Drum Machine and a Yamaha X3500 Keyboard. Little did he know this was the beginning of what would later become known today as Deleswa Productions.
