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...

Cheese.

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
