E-Tribe (Hangul: 이트라이브) is a South Korean record production duo consisting of Ahn Myung-won and Kim Young-deuk. They are most known for producing “Gee” by Girls' Generation, “U-Go-Girl” by Lee Hyo-ri, “Yayaya” by T-ara, “It's You” by Super Junior, and “I Know” by Se7en. Due to the consistent success of these singles, the duo has become well accepted and known in the South Korean music scene.[1]

In January 2011, E-Tribe debuted their own girl group, Dal Shabet. Their debut song, "Supa Dupa Diva", was released on January 3, 2011. The duo has also produced a number of their comeback tracks, including "Pink Rocket", "Bling Bling", "Hit U" and "Mr. Bang Bang". In May 2011, it was announced that E-Tribe's label, 'Happy Face Entertainment', would be merged with 'Y-WHO Enterprise'.[2] In 2014, Y-WHO Enterprise changed their name to 'The Vibe Entertainment'.[3]
