History

2017: Mixtapes and JYP Entertainment

3RACHA was formed in late 2016 in Seoul, South Korea. On January 18, 2017, they uploaded their first mix-tape, J:/2017/mixtape, onto SoundCloud, consisting of seven tracks.[2] They immediately received acclaim from listeners for their ability to write and produce their own music at a professional level.[citation needed] Before the release of their first EP, 3Days,[3] they were announced to be a part of a JYP Entertainment survival show by the name of Stray Kids.[4] During the airing of Stray Kids, 3RACHA released several individual singles, and on December 20, the day after their survival show’s finale, they released an EP titled Horizon,[5] which compiled all the songs they had recently uploaded.

2018: Start Line and Stray Kids debut

In January 2018, 3RACHA released a single titled Start Line[6] to celebrate their first year as a group. The pre-debut Stray Kids EP, titled Mixtape was also released composing of songs performed on the Stray Kids survival show, with 3RACHA having writing and production credits throughout the release.[7] On March 25, 2018, 3RACHA debuted with Stray Kids with the release of the, I Am NOT EP, and lead single "District 9".[8] All three members of 3RACHA participated in songwriting and production of the EP.

Stray Kids released two further albums in 2018, titled I Am Who and I Am You, as well as an album in 2019, titled Clé 1: Miroh in which the 3RACHA members have credits in songwriting and production in all tracks.[1]
