Music & Me: DELS
Wednesday 20 October 2010
Young MC DELS has been hard at work in the studio collaborating with Joe Goddard from Hot Chip for his second single. He took time out to answer a few teasers for Music Magazine
The first record I bought was...
Wu-Tang’s “Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)” on cassette tape. I still have it but the tape popped.
The first gig I went to was...
Jay-Z at Wembley Arena in 2003. Beyonce looked good.
My favourite album is...
A toss up between Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready To Die and ATLiens by Outkast.
But my parents always liked...
Kleeer, old school Jungle and Mad Professor.
I couldn’t marry someone who liked...
In the studio I like to wear...
Black. Most of my clothes are black.
I’d love to have on my show...
A UFO convention soundtracked by Vangelis.
One thing that must change in the music industry is...
Auto-tuning. Artists should embrace the imperfection in their voices.
A great album cover is...
Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures album cover is right up there for me.
On my iPod I listen most to...
At the moment, Beach House, James Blake, Joy Orbison and Caribou’s Swim album.
If I could have written any song it would have been...
“Suicidal Thoughts” by Notorious B.I.G. It’s like a movie.
The worst song I’ve heard is...
Every song on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 movie soundtrack.
DELS “Trumpalump” single is out 13 December with his debut album to follow in new year on Big Dada. The single “Shapeshift” is out now
