Dälek Stream New Song “Echoes Of



Dälek, the New Jersey-based “hip-hop abstractionists” (FACT) who announced their return to Ipecac Recordings earlier this month along with news of the new album Endangered Philosophies (Sept. 1), preview the release with a stream of “Echoes of…”

Endangered Philosophies is Dälek’s signature sound pushed in new directions. Re-sculpted to say all that needs to be said today. It is no one element, but rather an amalgamation of the lyrics, sonics, drums, noise, melody, bass, and turntablism,” explains MC Dälek of the new work. “Endangered Philosophies is a very introspective record about very external forces. This isn’t about one listen… it’s about your evolving perception when you immerse yourself in the layers of sound and words. Endangered Philosophies is a record about the RIGHT NOW and yet will resonate differently each time it is listened to, in a word….timeless.”

Pre-orders, including digital, CD and 2LP etched vinyl, are available now: http://smarturl.it/Dalek. Digital pre-orders include an instant download of “Echoes of…”

“Before Def Jux, before Death Grips, before Yeezus, there was Dälek” (Noisey). Pioneers of alt hip-hop, Dälek features rapper/producer MC Dälek, producer/live electronics Mike Manteca and turntablist DJ rEk. With roots in the mid-‘90s DIY scene, Dälek has consistently released groundbreaking albums, starting with their 1998 debut EP, Negro Necro Nekros, which NME said saw the outfit “deconstruct hip hop” to 2016’s Asphalt for Eden, hailed by Pitchfork for its subtlety and restraint, saying “on Asphalt for Eden, hip hop ascends into the noosphere.”
