Pedro David Daleccio Torres, better known as Dalex, was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvannia and raised in Juana Díaz, Puerto Rico. At the age of 11, as the son of divorced parents, he moved to Allentown, Pennsylvannia, where his passion for music was born. His greatest influence were the biggest stars of urban music of that time who were Wisin and Yandel, Zion and Lennox, Don Omar, Tego Calderón and Daddy Yankee. At age 12, he returned to Puerto Rico because life in the United States was not what they expected.
It was not until he was 18, while he was studying to become a barber, he began to write his first songs. When he completed barber school, he moved to the city of Orlando in Florida, looking for better opportunities in music. One day, while working at the barbershop “Marquesina Barbershop”, David Torres, owner of the company AnakinEnt, discovered the artist that was in him.
He spent 3 years in the talent company “AnakinEnt”, in which he belonged to the duo “Jayma and Dalex”, where he proved his talent with their single “Me Encantas.” Later, the duo collaborated with the urban artist Cosculluela on the song “Lento”, which surpassed a million views on YouTube. This opportunity opened many doors for him and he learned a lot about the music industry.
Currently, Dalex belongs to the label Rich Music, which is nominated for the 2017 Latin Music Billboard Awards as “Latin Rhythm Album Label of The Year”. Dalex only has a one goal working with this label and that is to offer the public good music, “Refreshing Music”, with God first.
The Extended Play “La Nueva Ola”, released last year under the music label of Rich Music, contains 6 songs and is somewhat different from what is usually done since it only has collaborations with artists from Puerto Rico and Panama. Some of the artists who collaborated with Dalex were Rafa Pabón, Lyanno, Rauw Alejandro, Sech, Alex Rose, Gigolo and La Exce, Justin Quiles, among others.
The original version of “Pa ‘Mí” with Rafa Pabón is the first single of his Extended Play (EP) “La Nueva Ola” and the remix ft. Rafa Pabon, Sech, Cazzu, Feid, Khea and Lenny Tavarez, has become a viral sensation reachimg # 1 in the Spotify Global 50 Viral Chart and ranked #1 in 10 Latin American countries such as Panama, Costa Rica, Colombia, El Salvador, Bolivia and Paraguay among others in the Spotify Viral 50 Chart and is #1 in 4 Latin American countries on Apple Music’s Top 100 Chart. The “Pa ‘Mi (Remix)” official audio has more than 67.5 million streams on YouTube.
Not only proclaimed as the new wave of the urban genre, but in actuality, he can be recognized as the artist of the moment. Dalex released his first studio album “Climaxxx” in May of 2019, & can be described in just two words: refreshing music. In the last year, Dalex has reached the highest point in his career thus far, and only wishes to continue growing with the help of his new album & taking his incomparable rhythm and lyrics all over the world. Just like he did with his hit single “Pa’ Mi (Remix),” which has reached a top 20 Global level throughout charts.
