We had the great privilege of interviewing Will Brooks the other day. I can't make up my mind what's more awesome, the music, rhymes or attitude of his hiphop outfit. One thing is for sure, though, mere words cannot describe the sheer originality, impact and sway of Dälek.
If you really want to pick the brain of Mr. Brooks, though, don't read this Talk. Instead, check out the Dälek Sound Pack here. It's genuine 160-proof old Anglo-Saxon baby. I'm not kidding. Go get those samples. They're the grain from which the album Asphalt for Eden was made. Enter the Deadverse.

Elektron Talk: Factory Floor
Factory Floor (Nik Void and Gabriel Gurnsey) is the bright new binary star on the London night sky. They formed in what was literally a factory of arts and musical expression in a, back then, not-yet-gentrified patch of North London, and they're as comfortable in the contemporary arts scene as they are in a nightclub.
On their debut album, and even more so on their upcoming second album, Factory Floor manage to combine utterly dance-inspiring, liberating music with dashes of industrial, experimental and unsettling elements.
You can tell they've been in musical cahoots with legends such as Cosey Fanni Tutti, Chris Carter, Stephen Morris and Nick Cave, but the works of Factory Floor will more likely warp your feet and heartbeat than your mind.
Factory Floor will perform at the Elektron Night of Machines in Berlin on April Fool's Day. You don't want to miss that.

Night of Machines in Berlin
Actress (UK) – Of Ninja Tune/Werkdiscs fame, who will awe us all with his inimitable cerebral, cybernetic beats.
Factory Floor (UK) – The most gripping post-industry outfit since Joy Division, whose adorable, thunderously soothing music will put you in a trance.
Neybuu (US) – Her frantic footwork is sure to sprain a couple of ankles, and put a smile on your face.
Varg (SE) – This pressure-cooker of a man is a master of industrial soundscapes.
\|/o (SE) – An elusive solitaire who commands the subtle transmutation of current into gold like few others.
Another thing – perhaps the most magnetic of our musical acts for the night is the one that we can’t tell you about. Rest assured, though, this duo – the Gala and Dali of the US industrial scene – won’t leave any of you unaffected.
DJs on duty: Alienata & Simonne Jones.
Where: Arena Club
When: Friday April 1 (Doors open at 21:00)
Tickets: €15 before midnight, €20 after midnight
