Dälek

Pioneers of alt hip-hop, Dälek (pronounced “die-a-lek”)
features Rapper/Producer MC Dälek, Producer/Live
Electronics Mike Manteca, and Turntabilist DJ rEk .
With roots in the mid-90’s DIY scene, Dälek has been delivering ground breaking albums for over 20 years. They have
encapsulated fans and critics across all genres, garnering fans and accolades from the Hip-Hop, Electronic, Indie,
Metal, Shoegaze, Jazz and experimental communities. After releasing 7 studio albums, numerous collaborations,
EP’s, and remixes, they are known for their large body of work and pushing boundaries with every release.
Debut album ‘Negro Necro Nekros’ was released in 1998 on Gern Blandsten, 2002 saw Ipecac Recordings release the game- changing ‘From Filthy Tongue of Gods and Griots’ which was followed with 3 more releases on Ipecac Recordings- ‘Absence’ in 2005, ‘Abandoned Language’ in 2007, & ‘Gutter Tactics’ in 2009.
In 2010, Dälek went on a 5 year hiatus to recoup from a decade of relentless touring, and to focus on new musical projects.
In January of 2015 MC Dälek said he “missed the noise,” and a tour and new single quickly followed.
2016 saw the release of the critically acclaimed ‘Asphalt for Eden’ on Profound Lore Records, once again showing the music world their constant evolution sonically and lyrically.

 

DÄLEK’s take on hip-hop is foreboding and hypnotic in a way that feels unexpected; sure, in the Age of Future, creepy, dark vibes are almost de rigeur, but DÄLEK takes it a step further towards the abyss by incorporating a seething electronic edge—think Einstürzende Neubauten, not Soundcloud.” – Noisey

What people say

“A tour de force of an album that further cements the bands place in the elite league of hip-hop artists that are still taking this art form further and further into the stratosphere.” – Louder Than War

“Dälek took hip-hop into new stylistic realms before. This time, although Brooks and company may not have specifically intended as much, on Asphalt for Eden, hip hop ascends into the noosphere.” – Pitchfork

“Mixing the searing political rhetoric of Public Enemy, the suffocating shoegaze textures of My Bloody Valentine and the primal appeal of squealing industrial noise…” – Rolling Stone

“…Asphalt for Eden is thoughtful and eclectic, blending elements of shoegaze, industrial, boom-bap, and ambience both sedative and rousing.” – Sputnik Music

“Nearly every moment on Asphalt For Eden weighs heavily on the chest and threatens to collapse the cavity.” – The Quietus
