Daedelus: Love To Make Music To

Posted on May 21, 2008 Under Music

No one expects a hip-hop producer to be a guy named Alfred Darlington, but that’s exactly what long-haired, tuxedo and top hat wearing hipster Daedelus is. Named for the mythological Greek artisan said to have invented images, the L.A.-based beatsmith has been known to dish out refreshingly weird compositions utilizing classic breaks, mismatched melodic samples, and heavily processed analog sounds and effects. A further departure from the forefront of modern abstract beat work, the first single from his tenth major (and cleverly titled) album Love To Make Music To can be heard at Daedelusmusic.com. The record is due out June 8th.
