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.
K/DEN started producing music in January 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 before beginning to experiment with other pseudonyms and mascots while the name, "Houndwire", was given to a furry music community they founded following the LapFox Trax controversy. Financial inexperience prompted Kayden to hand administration over to their moderators 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. They plan to remake and release Spectrum in October of 2019.
