On Big Dada
Kieren Dickins aka DELS is an MC and graphic designer from Ipswich, now based in London. His first taste of success came when John Peel heard him and his crew rapping in his home town and invited him onto his show. In 2007 he moved to Kingston to study graphic design. While there he made contact with Joe Goddard (Hot Chip) via Myspace and together they recorded "Lazy," which was released by Moshi Moshi. In 2010 he signed to Big Dada, and released his first album, "GOB," in May 2011, preceded by the singles "Shapeshift," "Trumpalump" and "GOB." The album was critically acclaimed, with The Times describing him as "the future of UK hip hop." As well as Goddard, DELS has worked regularly with Kwes (Warp) and Micachu of Micachu & The Shapes. In November 2012 he released a new EP, "Black Salad."
