Joe Goddard Mix

Kieren Dickins aka Dels is one of the year's most unexpected newcomers.

A rapper, Dels drops any sign of hip hop cliche for a fresh thinking approach. Teaming up with a range of producers, the Big Dada rapper has already released a string of quality singles throughout 2010.

Capping the year with his new release, 'Trumpalump' is a typically surreal dollop of forward thinking hip hop. Dels has teamed up with man of the moment Joe Goddard, who supplies some liquid production.

Working with Hot Chip this summer, Joe Goddard has also maintained his Greco-Roman imprint while also releasing a steady stream of solo cuts.

One of the year's most defining dance producers, Goddard adds a fun, house derived centre for Dels to build on. 'Trumpalump' begins as a collage as thoughts, with the MC playing the extrovert role to the max.

However as the single progresses Dels drops in some more melancholic thoughts, assuring fans that there's more to him than a cartoon.

Out now, Joe Goddard supplies a beautiful, deeply affecting chorus. 'Trumpalump' has been re-worked by a host of producers but it is the Hot Chip guru's own take which has caught our eye.

Adding vocals from Ghostpoet, the new remix tears away the bluff to reveal the beating heart of the original.
