A Little Chat with Dalek ( + Giveaway)

This November hip hop artist Dalek is out on tour with heavy metal band Candiria. It's an interesting lineup that only Black Iris Booking could bring to town. The boys will be playing the newly reclaimed Magic Stick this Thursday, November 10th.

We had a chance to ask Dalek a few questions get to know the man behind the microphone a little better. Give the man's music a listen here and check out what he has to say. If you like what you hear, come out and see him him perform alongside Candria this Thursday.

HID- Do you have a ritual before you hit the stage? If so what is it?
Dalek- "We speak to the bartender and walk to the stage holding beers and/or whiskey, and waters."

HID- Favorite holiday and why?
D- "Groundhog's Day, because Bill Murray."

HID- Drink of choice?
D- "Non alcoholic: Seltzer or Cafe con Leche
Alcoholic: Oban whiskey, or Old English 800 in a glass bottle, fuck the plastic."

HID- Favorite place to visit in the US?
D- "New Orleans"

HID- Do you write your verse or your beats first? Why?
D- "Lately we write the music first. Generally speaking, it's the music which inspires the feel of the song and sparks the lyrics."

HID- Go to fast food stop n the road?
D- "We don't really fuck with fast food honestly. We tend to seek out local spots for food. Life is too short to eat wack shit. We definitely grab some Lafayette Coneys every time we are in Detroit."

HID- What are you most looking forward to on the UK tour?
D- "All of it really, the U.K. Has always treated us well, but this time around I guess playing Glasgow and Dublin because we haven't been to Scotland or Ireland in a minute."

HID- Give us one good reason that we need to see you perform live?
D- "Because if you don't, I will find you."
