Darlon has had humble beginnings— starting his career in 2015 as an emerging DJ in  Nueva Ecija. After moving to Urdaneta, Darlon was hired as a DJ at a local resto-bar,  Distriq5. He was then called “MC Darlon” and was eventually dubbed by his co-DJs as  “E=MC2” or “MC Einstein”, as a way of giving respect to the local DJ Community. This was the start of an amazing journey, playing in different venues throughout the  Philippines and abroad, from Pampanga, to Boracay, and Hong Kong.  

Opportunities began to pour in, and after a meeting with Daryl (aka Skusta Clee of the Ex-Battalion), he was given the opportunity to be the group’s hype man. After a couple of shows, he was eventually invited to become a permanent part of the group; and the rest is history. With the acclaimed success of Ex- Battalion, MC Einstein’s life would change forever. 

And in a natural evolution of an artist, MC Einstein found himself on a different path as the rest of the group, continuously in pursuit of his own identity. 

This new chapter is an exciting and fun one. MC Einstein is about to embark on a  musical adventure as he releases tracks that represent what he is about: fun, relatable,  and a reflection of real-life experiences. This outlet will be his way of reaching the extension of his following and provide a glimpse of who MC Einstein is today. 

After a streak of collaborative hits for the past 3 years, MC Einstein’s first release for 2022 is a  solo performance on “Habol (chase).” Habol is about a man that continually chases after his cheating girlfriend. MC Einstein wrote the lyrics in the first-person narrative and questions  himself asking “Why do I keep doing this to myself knowing it hurts?” As relatable as any relationship, Habol also symbolizes a dream chasers’ pain and struggle.
