Robert Bailey, aka Dillgin, was born and raised in Jamaica. Throughout the years, he has pursued his career as a singer, DJ, songwriter, and producer on his own label, Wall Streetz Records. As a producer, he produced many artists including Capelton "Never Get Down” and “Dutty Life", Beenie Man "Power and Shower", Sizzla "Buzz Rock Warrior", Anthony B. & The Mighty Diamonds "Pass The Kutchie”, and Luciano "Mystery Babylon", among many others. Dillgin's 2001 self-produced breakout single “Cuss Cuss”- featuring Mark Ice- was featured on VP Records Strictly The Best 27, and has taken him on tours throughout Europe, the Caribbean, Canada and across the USA. Dillgin is the consummate performer and artiste. Dillgin’s music speaks to his goal of being an agent of change, using his music to spread a message of LOVE, TOLERANCE, PEACE, INSPIRATION and THE SUPPORT OF OTHERS. With a repertoire of original songs unparalleled only by few of the greats, he is also comfortable doing cover versions of songs that speak to him on a spiritual and emotional level adding his own unique flavor his experiences have wrought to whatever song he decides to draw from. Dillgin is constantly, tirelessly pushing himself to evolve as a person and as a musician. Dillgin can be found almost always in rehearsals or in the studio, when he isn’t off writing or performing. Relocating to California in 2010, Dillgin started over with a renewed focus on his music. He has opened for and collaborated with California Rock band, Urban Classics; consulted and worked with renowned musician Derrick Barnett, from Sagittarius and Statement Band; He also recorded with guitarist Aurelien Metsch of Wadada Music; and Producer Prynze of Paran Sounds, to complete his new album, New Day, that showcases his musical and spiritual evolution, as he give a very personal and uplifting insight into his struggles, determination, redemption, and commitment to the Most High, his family, his music, and his fans. Dillgin is poised to be a force to be reckoned with within the Reggae Music Industry. With a more mature, honed and sharpened sound, filled with emotion and notes from his life experiences, his authenticity and his unique ability to draw people in, to captivate audiences with his dynamism, emotion and talent, it is extremely hard to deny that Dillgin is about to take the world of Reggae Music by storm. Dillgin hopes his music will remove boundaries and build bridges regardless of race, color or religion, for people throughout the world delivering a message of LOVE and HOPE. Jah Bless

“Still A Work” Was a 2017 Anthem for Dillgin 2017 was arguably among the most progressive years for Jamaican reggae music in recent times. Several young stars and veterans put out songs that became staples on the airwaves and formed the soundtrack of daily life of reggae lovers at home and abroad. Perhaps one of the biggest winners for the period, in this regard, was Dillgin with his anthemic track “Still A Work.” In fact, “Still A Work” could easily rank as one of the songs of the year, especially as it relates to songs that were burning up the streets. The catchy and melodious track became a point of reference for many struggling to ‘make it’ and was a staple at street dances and parties for the entirety of 2017. It commanded ‘forwards’ and requests for ‘pull up’ (Jamaica’s version of asking for an encore) on many occasions. Top selectors, such as Boom Boom, kept spinning the song to satisfy the appetites of attendants to various sessions and street dances, including Uptown Mondays. But “Still A Work,” in 2017, was more than just a viral track on the streets. The song, which promotes a positive mindset amid adversities, was a catalyst for Dillgin’s trek back onto the charts and into the hearts and minds of reggae music lovers everywhere. With the song gaining consistent rotation on radio stations such as Irie FM, Dillgin acted on the momentum to drop his debut album, Million Miles. Continued demand for the song locally and abroad also spawned performances and tours for the artist, who is now based in California. Local appearances included his performance alongside Sanchez and Mr. Khool at the 2nd staging of his own show, “Jah Love is Shining.” The singer, who also wears the hat of producer, also performed his hit song and other tracks at Weddy Weddy, held at the Stone Love HQ. Dillgin also played the part of TV personality in 2017 when he hosted the VTX Top 10 Countdown on Hype TV, and he was the subject of a number of interviews. Internationally, Dillgin picked up on the good vibes emanating from “Still A Work,” particularly in the continent of South America where he kicked off a tour in Brazil at the start of summer and gained new fans. In addition to the impact on the streets, Dillgin was also a presence digitally, with his big tune spending time on several charts and racking up tens of thousands of views on YouTube. Dillgin built further on the momentum by putting out new music, launching the video for “Heart of Mine,” another fan favourite. With 2018 now well on its way, Dillgin is pleased with his 2017 achievements and is looking forward to an even bigger year. He believes his accomplishments are well-deserved, coming off a lull in his career a decade ago after making an impact earlier in his career. In his past, the talented musician crafted hit songs for some of reggae’s biggest stars, including Sizzla and Anthony B. A move to California in 2010 saw him starting all over again. The journey from rock bottom might have been long but Dillgin is now reaping the fruits of his hard work and is looking to step it up a notch with more music in the pipeline for his growing fan base.
