Daedelus

Los Angeles-native Alfred Darlington has been pushing the realms of electronic music since the turn of the century under his Daedelus moniker with a body of work that is as brilliant as it is difficult to define. Alfred’s love affair with electronic music was fueled by Acen’s ‘Trip To The Moon pt. 1’ and has seen this USC-trained multi-instrumentalist work with the likes of The Professor, Taz Arnold, MF Doom and Madlib and on music that pushes the very notion of the avant-garde but never loses sight of the dancefloor. With releases on Mush, Plug Research, Hefty, Tigerbeat6, Ninja Tune and Eastern Developments, Alfred’s reputation has been garnered from his incredible ability to cut and slice a disparate range of influences into tracks that have an incredible resonance for the listener be they sourced from the 30s or gleamed from the future. I’m sure that you’ll agree that we as listeners and dancers are very fortunate to have someone like Daedelus on the music scene.
