Tapped as a ‘2013 Artist To Watch’ by the likes of MTV, Billboard and VIBE, DELONG has been generating a strong buzz with “Global Concepts,” the first single from JUST MOVEMENT. Its video made its debut across many various MTV channels including AMTV, MTV Hits, mtvU, MTV.com, MTV.com/music and mtvU.com. At radio, “Global Concepts” was first heard on the airwaves of WEQX/Albany, KROQ/Los Angeles Locals Only, 98.7′s Close to Home and KCRW over the summer of 2012. Since then, the single has gained great momentum making SiriusXM Alt Nations Top 18 Countdown, #8 on WEQX’s Best of 2012, now amongst the Top 5 most played at KNDD/Seattle, support from Live 105/San Francisco and much more. Overseas, “Global Concepts” had continued to gain support on Triple J in Australia and it is also being played on XFM and BBC1 Radio, where it was named Zane Lowe’s “Next Hypetrack.” On the live front, DELONG is a one-man band who uses MIDI interfaces, a full drum set, guitar, drum pads, keyboards, laptops and game controllers, looping his music live to fuse electronic dance beats with striking melodies and lyrics with emotional heart. His charismatic live performance has caught the attention of many influential promoters, landing him performance slots at such major festivals as Ultra Music Festival, Coachella, Governors Ball, SXSW and Popscene SF this spring.
