“Living a thousand lives” – interview with Will Brooks, aka MC Dälek, aka IconAclass.

Calling him an icon wouldn’t be an exaggeration. Will Brooks, aka MC Dälek, aka IconAclass, certainly earned this description through his, over decade long, career. After working with Oktopus as Dälek for 15 years, he switched to a new project. IconAclass.

As IconAclass Will is going to perform during the 5th installment of Asymmetry Festival. He is no strange to this event. Together with Oktopus. Will enchanted the audience on the first edition of the festival in 2009. But music he creates under the moniker IconAclass is very different from what we know from the fabulous, eclectic Dälek records. Will goes back to the roots of hip-hop, based on good powerful beats and lyrics that say something you can relate to. Has he succeeded in doing so? You can judge yourselves by visiting Deadverse Recordings (record label Will co-owns) Bandcamp profile and listening to his releases as IconAclass, including album “For The Ones”. If you ask us, no one will be disappointed. Since we have the honor to have such an extraordinary artist as Will in our lineup, we wanted to find out, what’s going on with him right know. Because we know very well that the artist is very intelligent, eloquent and has opinions on different things, we used this interview as an opportunity to know what Will thinks of cult of celebrities, Obama administration and if he is expecting anything from new album of one of his all-time favorite bands, among others. Yes, we also asked about possibility of a new album of Dälek. Give it a try and read it, you won’t regret it! Read more
