Experimental producer turned musician Daedelus returns to the UK in March to promote his new album ‘Bespoke’. The LA based pioneer, real name Alfred Darlington, shot to fame for his ahead-of-the-curve live performances and his ability to incorporate monome systems (the machine used to trigger samples) to pull of electronic music more effectively during live shows.
The title of his new album, the definition of which is ‘an item made to measure’, is something that Daedelus wants us to think carefully about: “I not only intended it as a reflection of the LP itself, but also an outlook on life,” he explains.
‘Bespoke’, released April 11th, will feature a wide range of talent including appearances from LA rapper Busdriver, Canadian electro-musician Milosh and American soul singer Bilal. Check out Daedelus’ cool animated video for Fair Weather Friends plus his upcoming live dates after the jump.
