A young Daedelus began noodling bass clarinet notes, and soon graduated into the covenant of 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.
He has worked with Laura Darling, Busdriver, Frosty, MF DOOM, Prefuse73, Absract Rude, Madlib, Flying Lotus, Pigeon John, Hrishikesh Hirway,Radioinactive, High Priest (anti-pop consortium), N’fa (1200 Techniques), Taz Arnold and Om’mas Keith(Sa-Ra), Michael Johnson, Cyne, TTC, Carlos Nino (Build An Ark, Amoncontact) + many more. His live show, which utilizes Monome, has amazed audiences across the US, Europe, Australia, China, Middle East and Japan.
