Daedelus, (real name Alfred Darlington) is the eccentric, electronic maestro of the California coast. One of LA’s most hard-working new artists this musical romantic weaves together songs that fall between honeyed melody and avant-electronics. Daedelus chops and splices disparate acoustic sources into incredible works of staggering resonance. Contrasting plunderphonics, styled cut-ups, and childlike arrangements, he has refined a style with no imitators, but many collaborators.
In his new album Denies the Day’s Demise ( Ninja Tune ), shows his recent flirt with the Brazilian samba enredo.
