Doom Live Oct 2012Get your diaries out: Hip Hop's Supervillain DOOM plays a full set at Kentish Town's suitably regal HMV Forum. Plus after show club night with DELS and many more artists to be announced. It's on!

DOOM is the new alias of New York producer and rapper Daniel Dumile Thompson, who has previously worked under various pseudonyms including MF Doom, Viktor Vaughn, Danger Doom (with Danger Mouse) and Madvillain (with Madlib). An essential and outlandish figure in underground hip hop, he always covers his face behind a Dr Doom mask and has created his own universe centered around the world of comic books and Japanese monsters. His unconventional approach, linguistic dexterity and sick flow have gained DOOM an army of ardent fans from many different corners of the music world, and counts musicians of the caliber of Thom Yorke as some of his biggest supporters.

Kieren Dickins
aka DELS is a new type of rapper (which is another way of saying that he's more than just a rapper). Applying the kind of attention to detail, micro-management and macro-vision which Jay-Z used to build a business empire, DELS makes art. Popular art mind you, but art all the same, with emotional peaks, musical innovation and surreal, brilliant lyrics, held together by such a unique, such a strong vision.
