In an era of homogeneous hip hop, the music of Kieren Dickins ' better known as his on-stage alter ego DELS ' comes as a breath of proverbial fresh air. DELS' signature sound belies a truly eclectic range of musical influences, from his days in a two-step garage band as a teenager, to a long-standing creative partnership with Joe Goddard from electro-pop wonder team Hot Chip. The resulting product is a unique mishmash of squelchy bass lines, tinkering keys, syncopated drums and the occasional steel pan, all juxtaposed by DELS' infectiously languid flow. It's a sound that is fast gaining recognition amongst music heads the world over, and has seen DELS tour Europe with Hip Hop eccentrics Yo! Majesty, and play at festivals including Glastonbury, Transmusicales and Big Chill. Having featured heavily on the acclaimed 'Kwesachu' mixtape by production wunderkinds Micachu and Kwes, DELS has just put the final touches to his debut album (produced by Joe Goddard, kwes and Micachu), 'Gob' due for release later this year.
