Two years after Endangered Philosophies, American Noise/Hip-Hop band DÄLEK returned with a new EP. Respect To The Authors is out via Germany’s Exile On Mainstream in conjunction with a European tour and performances at the label’s 20th Anniversary festival celebrations. Theu shared the official video for the track “With These Mics“.
DÄLEK reveals, “We were introduced to Vincent Cretara’s work through a mutual friend. We are always interested in seeing how artists that we respect interpret our work. We were curious to see where Vincent would go visually with ‘With These Mics’ and just knew we didn’t want a literal interpretation for the video. What he came back with was dope animation and storytelling that really complements the song. As Vincent puts it: ‘The music video for ‘With These Mics’ is an ’80s style Ray Harryhausen / Akira Kurosawa inspired storyline visualizing the rising momentum of the song. An old Samurai wanders in search of immortality. A map leads him to his fate.”
