Daedelus has dedicated his career to the war against cliché. Like his mythological namesake, Alfred Darlington is an inventor, a craftsman, a constructor of labyrinths. Others get trapped in the maze; he knows how to build wings.
Over the last twelve years, the LA producer has dropped two-dozen full-lengths and EPs. Each is a bespoke cut, tailored from an array of colors and textures. Pick a genre, any genre: juke, hip-hop, bossa nova, rave, classical, psychedelic, drum-and-bass, glitch, etc. If there’s a beat, Daedelus has likely freaked it.
When the world strictly knew the “Low End Theory” as A Tribe Called Quest record, Daedelus helped supply the bedrock for the LA beat scene. His 2008 Live at Low End Theory remains a defining document of the most influential American club night of the last decade.
The record also highlights his agility and innovation as a live artist. Onstage, Daedelus transforms into a sorcerer. His shows are a glowing carnival of monomes, Victorian garb, and dance, often magnified by a mechanized backdrop of moving mirrors entitled "Archimedes," his own rendition of EDM's audio-visual spectacle. Ostensibly incompatible sounds are mixed into something novel and extraordinary. All improvisation everything.
Daedelus has collaborated with the likes of MF Doom, Flying Lotus, Madlib and myriad others. He's released records for beat music’s most respected imprints, including Ninja Tune, Brainfeeder, and his own Magical Properties. Despite this eclecticism, the LA Times pointed out that he “forged a singular aesthetic back when break beats and B-Boy poses still ruled the Los Angeles underground."
He strikes a balance between the direct and the obtuse that can’t be articulated in words. This is part of the subtext for "Drown Out," Daedelus’ most elegiac album. His debut for Anticon is a heart-on-sleeve meditation devoted to loss, coded language, and the maddening failures of communication. And yet you can still bob your head to it.
Consider it another invention in an always-expanding workshop. Permanent flight. No delays or clichés.
Oakland, California based electronic producer Matthew Suggett aka Insightful creates a lush off kilterd sound combining heavy bass with soulful melodies pushing beat music to new places. Insightful recently performed at one of the largest us festivals, Coachella. His latest remix album 'The fondle package' gained much priase from fans and collegues alike. it is hard to pin point a genre on this young up and coming producer when each track conveys a completly different emotion with nostalgic vocal samples and a futuristic deep grooves.
