No rest for our boy DELS, even a few months after the release of his critically acclaimed and much loved debut album, GOB. The last time we saw DELS he was filming a mini documentary to show off the work that went into recording the track “Capsize”, and now the Ipswich, UK emcee and graphic designer is excited to let fans in on the other side of the equation with a spaced out video for the single. As DELS spits his verses while standing among alien pyramids and marble mazes, satellites’ spewing lasers and virtual organs pulsating aplenty, the chorus drops in with Joe Goddard singing “where is the heart and soul, we need to stick together”, an effect that bring the tracks slew of different style and sounds together, creating something that sounds completely new and effortlessly different.
DELS wants to give back to the people that stuck by him throughout the release of his debut album. DELS is holding a contest, currently underway, which allows aspiring producers to upload their original music to the Big Dada website. At the contest’s close, DELS, along with the Big Dada staff will listen to the twenty most popular tracks, as determined by view and play counts. Upon selecting the winner, DELS will rap over the instrumental, and Big Dada will release the song through their site. For more information, including rules and guidelines for entering the contest, head over to http://www.bigdada.com/dels-vocal/
