For the past decade and a half, the group has been known for their old-school-street poetry influenced language and delivery underscored by enticingly alarming, sinister sounds.
They’re eccentricity manifests most in their full-length albums: Gutter Tactics (2009), Abandoned Language (2007), Absence (2005), From Filthy Tongue of Gods and Griots (2002), and Negro Necro Nekros (1998) - all of which were released through Ipecac Recordings. Dalek supported these albums on tour for a decade, and has performed with many influential artists!
That includes, (but is not limited to) KRS One, Tomahawk, The Melvins, TOOL, Grandmaster Flash, Jesu, Dillinger Escape Plan, Pharcyde, RJD2, DeLa Soul, Prince Paul, Lovage, ZU, Black Heart Procession, Gaslamp Killer, Earth, Flying Lotus, The Bug, Mastodon, and Fantomas.
After taking a break from the tour, the group was revived and reformed by virtuoso and producer, DJ Dalek creating a new line-up. This consisted of DJ rEk, who works the turn-tables, as well as co-producer Mike Manteca who manages samplers and effects. The trio united to share their original, experimental sub-hip-hop genre through their long anticipated album, Asphalt for Eden.
