|DELS Petals Have Fallen Limited White 180gram Heavyweight Vinyl LP
· Kieren Gallear aka DELS returns with his second album via Big Dada, ‘Petals Have Fallen’, delivering on the potential of 2011’s ‘GOB’ and developing his own unique take on hip hop - intensely personal and poetic but also funny, scuzzy, raw and sonically adventurous.
· DELS’ long-term collaborator Kwes (Warp) takes the role of Executive Producer and ‘reducer’. Beats provided by Bonobo (Ninja Tune), Micachu (fresh from her triumph as the soundtracker for ‘Under The Skin’), Blue May, Eli-T and others, plus guest performances by some of the most exciting singers in the UK today - Kerry Leatham, Rosie Lowe, Tirzah, Bila and Elan Tamara.
· Album artwork painted by Arth Daniels with Kieren designing all of the artwork.
· DELS recently played an extremely well received set at the 555-5555 club night, along with patten, Appleblim & Komon, PhOtOmachine, Prayer and Max Tundra.
· Already hotly-tipped as an MC and carving out a successful career as a designer and video director, DELS brings together all his interests and talents on this, a stand out album which delivers on The Times’ verdict that he is “the future of UK hip hop.”
· His explanation of the title of the record perfectly sums up Gallear’s aesthetic: “the urge to protect something precious that will ultimately fall apart.”
· 180g heavyweight white vinyl including download code. 200 random copies of the record will have petals shrink-wrapped in the packaging.
