The Artist Behind The Curtain; DVSN


DVSN pronounced division is a Canadian group signed to OVO Sound. In an article I read some have assumed that DVSN is a duo, composed of Paul Jefferies, also known as Nineteen85; OVO Sound’s producer, and Daniel Daley. Nineteen85 is known for making some of Drake’s biggest chart-toppers such as: “Hotline Bling”, “Truffle Butter”, and “Hold On, We’re Going Home”. The vocalist has not been publically released or stated, but speculations believe that his name is Daniel Daley. Others have speculated that Nineteen85 is operating under a different name. It has been a huge mystery on who DVSN is. Many people believe DVSN is two different men that created a group, while others believe it is a man and a woman. Until they actually reveal who they are, the true artists are going to remain a mystery. My theory is that DVSN consists of two people, Daniel Daley and Nineteen85. Now let’s break it down a little more. To divide, means to separate and split into equal parts or groups. Daniel and Nineteen85 are splitting the music. Daley being the vocalist and Nineteen85 being the producer collaborating as one, creating DVSN. Sept. 5, 2015, they released two songs, titled “The Line” and “With Me”. Dec. 2, 2015 they released their third song titled “Too Deep” on Soundcloud and iTunes. Dec. 24, 2015 they released their fourth song, titled “Hallucinations” on Soundcloud and iTunes. March. 11, 2015, DVSN announced the release date of their debut studio album, titled ‘Sept 5th’, along with the album being made available for pre-order on the iTunes store. They released the album exclusively on iTunes and Apple Music on March, 27, 2016, with the album releasing elsewhere on April. 1, 2016. Rumor has it, Nineteen85 and Daniel Daley have been working together for many years. All of their past music that they’ve created has since then been deleted from the internet. My question is… where’s the face to match the voice? And why hide the artist(s)? Nineteen85 says he’s choosing to let the music speak for itself instead of putting a face to it.
