Eccentric, contagious, electrifying. These are some words you could use to describe American electronic artist Daedelus (Alfred Darlington). Experiencing the totality of his work is only achievable through a large scope. Over the course of a shocking number of LPs, EPs, remixes, and most importantly live improvised appearances; a portrait of an unique artist has been painted in bold strokes. Despite the fact that he was formally trained on double bass and bass clarinet, had studied jazz and could play additional instruments such as the guitar and accordion, Daedelus chose to go the electronica route, often incorporating samples from the '30s and '40s into his IDM and left-field hip-hop. His debut full-length Invention was released by the Plug Research label in 2002. Daedelus proved to be a prolific composer, and the following four years brought four new albums, released via Plug Research and Mush. He also worked on countless singles and side projects, including a stint as a producer for his Mush labelmates. The musician's engaging live set was finally made available for fans, albeit in limited numbers, with Live at Low End Theory, which was recorded during a July 2007 performance at Los Angeles' The Airliner and released in early 2008. Love to Make Music To followed in July. Righteous Fists of Harmony, issued in 2010, was released on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label. In 2011, Ninja Tune released the ambitious Bespoke, which found Daedelus working with a long list of guest vocalists, including Will Wiesenfeld (Baths), Inara George of The Bird and the Bee, and Busdriver. His upcoming record Drown Out is set to be released by Anticon on September 17.
