Dälek Announces Tour Dates

Just after the recent release of their album Asphalt to Eden, progressive hip-hop trio Dalek announces a set of tour dates.

They will be performing at a few isolated events including the Northside Festival on June 9th at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn and a New York themed affair in Paris on July 9th. Subsequently, they will be taking the stage in Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, Oakland, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Chicago. 

Skilled jugglers, the men were able to prepare for the tour and remix Publicist UK’s “Telegraphing,” currently available on Noisy.

The website states: "The original version is a slice of upbeat, almost poppy post-punk with dynamic dual vocals that appeared on taken off Publicist UK's most recent album, 2015's Forgive Yourself. When given the Dälek remix treatment, though, it becomes utterly transformed, stretched out into a discordant opium haze, peppered with electronic blips and menacing subsonic frequencies. The pretty parts get dark, and the dark parts get weird."

Throwing another ball in the toss, Dalek linked with Elektron to create the Dalek Soundscapes Sound pack, a collection of songs produced during the making of Asphalt to Eden but not included in the final copy. This package seams the last thread of Dalek’s collection in regard to the album and is a testimony to the group’s vigorous work ethic and signature aesthetic. 
Emerging from their DIY scene in the late 90’s, 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 released through Ipecac Recordings. Dalek supported these albums on tour for a decade and have performed with many influential artists including, but 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, virtuoso and producer, DJ Dalek revived the group during Spring of 2015, creating a new line-up consisting of DJ rEk who works the turn-tables and 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.
