Daedelus » Biography
Once working from a studio in Santa Monica, California. A young Daedelus began noodling Bass Clarinet notes, and soon after attempting Double-Bass. After an ill-fated affair pondering classical and jazz, rave paved the way, and a burgeoning record collection fueled Daedelus’ artistic creativity, preparing the path to his first full length release, Invention. Inspired by ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘70s grooves, and defying genres such as downtempo and hip-hop, Daedelus gradually begins to venture into the L.A. afterdark.
The music on Invention combines multiple instruments, including non-traditional ones such as computer printers, toy pianos, and among other bent and mis-used, the Omnichord. Daedelus invites local MC talents Busdriver and Sach to flow over the masterful bonus versions of “Quiet Now” and “Pursed Lips Reply.” Invention unfolds in dynamic ranges of emotion.
Daedelus has also released “Her’s Is >” on Phthalo, an e.p. “The Household” on Scott Herren’s Eastern Developments imprint and has produced “The Weather” album for Mush Recordings. Then “Rethinking The Weather”, “Meanwhile…”, “A Gent Agent”, “Of Snowdonia”, “Axe Murderation”, “Exquisite Corpse”, “Denies The Day’s Demise”, “Fair Weather Friends”, “Love To Make Music To” and it’s SPs for Ninjatune recordings, “Friends of Friends vol. 1” T-shirt EP along side Jogger, “Bespoke” is the his most recent LP.
