Stepping out from behind the dark, ugly shadow of contemporary Hip Hop, Newark, NJ's Dälek is here to redefine pretenses of the genre, now and forever, with the challenging new full length on Ipecac Recordings.

Back in the day, Dälek and the Oktopus met at William Patterson University. The O, learning that Dälek made beats at his home studio, offered to help him engineer his nascent tracks at his growing studio, Sweetwood Sound. Since a creative mind is a terrible thing to waste, Dälek later dropped out of Patterson, cashing in his college loan checks to pick up his first MPC 3000 -- turning what began as an experiment into one of the most inventive Hip Hop records the world will ever hear.
