On January 1, 2024, DXMON released their pre-debut single titled 'Burn Up'. This scintillating track quickly captivated audiences worldwide, amassing an impressive 1.3 million views on YouTube within a remarkably short period for a rookie group. The song served as a powerful precursor to the group's impending debut, setting the stage for their meteoric rise to stardom.


Marking their official debut, DXMON unleashed their highly anticipated debut mini-album titled "HYPERSPACE" on January 17. At the heart of the album lies the mesmerizing second title track 'Spark', a melodic song that ignites the listener's imagination with the thrilling feeling of being the protagonist in their own story. 





Behind their enigmatic moniker lies a profound philosophy.

It embodies the group's unwavering determination to navigate the complexities of life with courage and conviction, embracing challenges as opportunities for growth and self-discovery.
