Dälek is without a doubt one of the most remarked and remarkable bands to have emerged in the recent years. With three albums (two of which on Mike Patton's label Ipecac), a reputation for relentless touring and an unforgettable live show, this American duo has not only made a name for itself worldwide, but single-handedly built a whole new sound, picking the best of many genres and avoiding being reduced to any category.
Hip-hop at its core, Dälek is also a massive juggernaut of noise and head-banging rhythms. Mixing intelligent lyrics with extremely heavy rhythms, intense beats and carefully chosen samples, Dälek have received the praise of the press worldwide, gone on tour with Fantomas, The Melvins, Isis, Meat Beat Manifesto or The Bug and played more festivals than one would think possible. And let’s not forget their collaborations with Faust, Kid606, DJ Spooky and 2nd Gen and Techno Animal, to cite only a few.
With “Streets All Amped”, Dälek offers yet a new face of their art. Following the noise-driven “Absence” album (Ipecac), Dälek demonstrate again their open-mindedness, and come back to the roots of their “Negro Necro Nekros” debut. The vocals have won their prominence back, and the instrumentation has become more intricate, resulting in four fast paced, intense and detailed tracks.
Ad Noiseam is proud to present Dälek's “Streets All Amped”. A record combining the sheer overwhelming talent of Dälek with their open-mindedness of sound, it is another masterpiece from an essential project. (Ad Noiseam)
