Dalek - From Filthy Tongues
Label: Ipecac
Format: CD


"Hip hop from the edge" from Dalek, who initially "cut their teeth on collaborations with the likes of Techno Animal and Kid606

Words are weapons. Round here, we don’t have much time for Wu Tang’s ‘Rar! I’m a NINJA!’ childplay, not when we have the Candyman reciting poetry from The Other Side on street corners and shit like this screaming out of mirrors. Dälek cut their teeth on collaborations with the likes of Techno Animal and Kid606, and have sharpened them into /fangs/ on 'From Filthy Tongues of Gods and Griots'. This is hip hop from the edge. These are Truth Tales spoken in tongues by a preacherman versed in the darkest arts: “There lies a language in the noise and the hum. Prepare for martyrdom! Prepare for martyrdom! I speak that ancient tongue. There lies a language in the noise and the hum...” These words spin on shards of metal and shine and slice like a flickknife in the night. They kiss your eyelids with the soft redeeming cold of coins for The Boatman. This music is hard to touch. It constantly warps out of form, bending and melting under the pressure of craniums about to implode and held together only by the need to impart as much otherworldly wisdom as possible from lips that are flayed with every syllable. Words are weapons.
