Karl Denson Teams Up with Slightly Stoopid’s Dela for Opening Night Album, Shares Single

Slightly Stoopid’s Daniel “Dela” Delacruz and Karl Denson are teaming up as Dela and The Aggrolites, who will release their debut album Opening Night November 3 via Stoopid Records.

The album, which fuses reggae and jazz, features a number of guests including Rashawn Ross, Delacruz’s Slightly Stoopid bandmate Andy Geib, Fishbone’s Angelo Moore and Marco Benevento. The band shared the album’s first track, “Atlantic & Smith,” today via Relix.

“Atlantic and Smith are two streets in Boerum Hill Brooklyn,” Delacruz tells Relix. “I lived there for two years in this railroad flat. One day, I left an iron on the top shelf of my book shelf. Don’t ask me why the hell I did that. I walked by and yanked the cord accidentally. The next thing I know, the iron hit me in the head. I saw some stars, but came out of the daze with the bassline in my head. Angelo is a huge influence on my life. I’ve always looked up to him. I knew he was perfect to tell the story in a spoken word way.”
