    Montreal-based producer Dela, who has worked with the likes of Elzhi, Talib Kweli, J-Live, Blu and Large Professor to name a few returns with the follow-up to his 2009 debut “Changes of Atmosphere”:
    “Most of the album was composed in Montreal in 2009 and 2010. Constantly visiting record stores throughout the city, the sonics of the album were shaped by the vinyls Dela would come across. Jazz, Funk, Prog, Quebec music being the styles he sampled the most. His love for melodies and beautiful chord changes has remained intact, but an accent is made on the drums, probably the most important instrument in Hip-Hop music.
    The main theme of the album is declared by Aliya, a friend of Dela who also had a little cameo on Changes Of Atmosphere. Her introduction sets the tone : Translation Lost is about love stories gone wrong. It’s about that very moment in a relationship when two people can’t understand each other anymore. If Translation Lost is not to be called a concept album, the theme is indeed omnipresent and defines the mood of the whole record. Another huge inspiration is Louis Malle’s movie Ascenseur Pour L’Echafaud. A passionate cinephile, Dela does not hesitate to dig in his favorites movies for samples and ideas.”
    The album will be available on March 31st, so those that pre-order today will get a download code on the day of release.
