Right Now

"He's the producer, I'm the vocalist" is probably the best way to describe AC & Dell, a duo from Brooklyn and Atlanta respectively. AC also known as AC Slater, a globe-trotting dance music producer and DJ - whose music is supported by superstar DJs like Moby, Diplo, Crookers and Boyz Noize - is the man behind the controls. Dell "o8o" Harris is the charismatic front man. A multitalented rapper fusing indie dance music and hip hop, Dell has made a home in the underground, rocking parties week after week. Brought together by a chance remix and brief meeting at a party in Atlanta, the two talked about future collaboration, which came to existence on the UK's BBC Radio 1 when Toddla T asked AC & Dell to put together a remix for a segment on his show. The results were exciting and the reaction was overwhelmingly positive. The two decided to continue in the studio with the goal of a mixtape. This goal turned into an album of all original material. On the "Right Now" album AC & Dell invite the listener into their world of late night underground parties, girl troubles, and jet setter antics. Combining the sounds of hip hop, electronic, and indie rock, the record caught the attention of world renowned streetwear label Mishka, who took the independent project and produced a limited run of physical CDs to distribute.
