Deceptikonz were a hip-hop quartet formed in Manurewa, South Auckland, in 1998. Rather determinedly they spent three years sending mixtapes and demos to labels before finally signing with Dawn Raid Entertainment in 2001.

The lineup was Demetrius Savelio (stage name: Savage, rapper); David Puniani (Devolo, rapper); Daniel Maoate (Alphrisk, rapper) and Mark Sagapolutele (Mareko, rapper and beatmaker).
