the new issue of XLR8R

Though Love To Make Music To may be Daedelus' most high-profile album yet, he has been a prominent fixture on the L.A. avant-beats scene since 2001, starting with Portrait of the Artist (Distill) and Her's Is >[sic] (Phthalo). On 2002's Invention, he defined his atmospheric, intense-yet-sexy sound, while '03 and '04 yielded five more full-lengths, including The Weather-a collabo with MCs Busdriver and Radioinactive that he calls his "moon-bounce hip-hop record" and Of Snowdonia and A Gent Agent, two doe-eyed sleepwalks whose swirling synths and choppy beats occasionally coalesce into an all-out jungle frenzy".

Daedelus is deejaying at 205 in NYC tonight (Sept 3) with Eliot Lipp. He then makes his way back to his homestate of California before heading right back here on September 7th to play a Wordless Music Series show at (le) poisson rouge with Flying Lotus and So Percussion. Two days later he hits Crash Mansion. Many more tour dates below...
