DELS has released three singles, "Shapeshift", "Trumpalump" (produced by Hot Chip's Joe Goddard) and "GOB" (produced by Kwes), in 2010 and 2011. His debut album GOB was produced by Kwes, with Micachu engineering two tracks and Joe Goddard three tracks. DELS met all three producers via Myspace when the social networking site was at its peak of popularity.
DELS was described as the 'Future of UK Hip Hop' by British national newspaper The Times in their 'Ones To Watch 2011' list in January 2011. Paul Lester of The Guardian has complimented Dickins for his ability to set himself apart from many homogeneous Hip Hop artists by sounding both languid and urgent. Lester has described Dickins as "Dizzee mixed with the Björk of Vespertina". DELS has received positive media coverage from BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music DJ's such as Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, Reggie Yates, Huey Morgan and Lauren Laverne. DELS' single 'Shapeshift' was been listed by Dazed & Confused and Drowned In Sound as one of their top singles of 2010.
