K/DEN, also known as KDENtrax, formerly as Luxston, Scourge Luxston and Houndwire (real name Kayden Parks, born August 26, 1997), is a nonbinary transmasculine electronic musician who lives in Sacramento, California, USA.
They also own a number of other original characters that can be viewed from their Toyhouse.
K/DEN started producing music in Februrary of 2011 (at the age of 13) as Scourge Luxston, taking major inspiration from LapFox Trax musician Renard Queenston at the time. Later that year, they shortened the name down to just Luxston, releasing five EPs titled "This Burning City", "Winterfell", "Level 99 (Point Nine)", "Bow to the King", and "Spectrum", then dropped the name entirely in favor of Houndwire in 2012, under which they released the tracks "Skyscraper" and "Dragon's Domain" to go with the never released "Beware of Dog" EP.
Due to academic stress and a general loss in their creative drive, Kayden entered a prolonged hiatus in late 2013, briefly operating under Luxston once again while beginning to experiment with other pseudonyms and mascots. The previous production name, "Houndwire", and the accompanied mascot was given to a furry music group that they founded in response to Ren Queenston's sexual assault on their partner, hoping to form a community-based music label consisting of those who were once inspired by Ren to create. However, financial inexperience, anonymous threats, and the resulting anxiety prompted Kayden to hand administration over to their moderators (later forcing them to shut Houndwire down out of impulse) and leave the group entirely to focus on their own projects, albeit accomplishing very little in terms of music.
In January of 2019, they returned under the name K/DEN, releasing their first track since 2016, "The Dragon", a remake of Dragon's Domain.
