Union City, New Jersey alt hip-hop group DÄLEK presents an animated official video for "With These Mics" (via Brooklyn Vegan), one of the six new tracks on their limited/vinyl-only 12" EP, Respect To The Authors. The record was recently released through Germany's Exile On Mainstream in conjunction with a European tour and performances at the label's 20th Anniversary festival celebrations.

The video for "With These Mics" brings the song to life through an explosive Claymation sequence by Vincent Cretara. About which DÄLEK reveals, "We were introduced to Vincent Cretara's work through a mutual friend. We are always interested in seeing how artists that we respect interpret our work. We were curious to see where Vincent would go visually with 'With These Mics' and just knew we didn't want a literal interpretation for the video. What he came back with was dope animation and storytelling that really complements the song. As Vincent puts it: 'The music video for 'With These Mics' is an '80s style Ray Harryhausen / Akira Kurosawa inspired storyline visualizing the rising momentum of the song. An old Samurai wanders in search of immortality. A map leads him to his fate."
