Dälek Release New Album “Endangered Philosophies” Via Ipecac Recordings; North American Tour This October

Dälek, who have been “mixing the searing political rhetoric of Public Enemy, the suffocating shoegaze textures of My Bloody Valentine and the primal appeal of squealing industrial noise” for over 18 years (Rolling Stone), released their new album, Endangered Philosophies on September 1st, via Ipecac Recordings).

“Endangered Philosophies is Dälek’s signature sound pushed in new directions,” explains MC Dälek. “It 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 sounds and words. Endangered Philosophies is a record about the RIGHT NOW.”

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.”
