Salvador Dalek was born June 2001 as the collaborative project identity of multimedia musician/artist/designers Eric Scott and Pete Moraites, after meeting at a workshop with Tomato based in New York City. They have chosen this recording/remixing moniker as a channel for new creative and professional activities.
Not to be confused with Salvador’s wiser, older sibling, Julie Android, Dalek operates in a definitionless, sampladelic universe.
The first Salvador Dalek public event – was a performance LIVE JAM (Listen) in Venice, CA during the Pete Moraites DVD launch party in May 2006.
The latest was less than one month ago, at The Room in Santa Monica, CA where Eric Scott regularly guest-DJ’s trip-hop, downtempo and surrealistically slurry beats on Thursday nights, as one of the guest DJs in a regular part of the Tripnotic Lounge series. Come by, buy a drink, relax and hear him spin – and definitely remember to stop by say hi!
