“DÄLEK´s take on hip-hop is foreboding and hypnotic in a way that feels unexpected; sure, in the Age of Future, creepy, dark vibes are almost de rigeur, but DÄLEK takes it a step further towards the abyss by incorporating a seething electronic edgethink Einstürzende Neubauten, not Soundcloud.” - Noisey
