Back in 2014, at MoogFest in Asheville, NC., I was able to capture some pretty cool footage, experience some really cool technology and meet some even cooler folks. Daedelus is one such cool individual with whom I had the pleasure of chatting it up with during MoogFest 2014 as he prepped for his performance later that night at the Orange with fellow ‘Low End Theory’ luminaries The Gas Lamp Killer and TokiMonsta.
Daedelus’ bio describes him as follows;
“Like his mythological namesake, Daedelus – otherwise known as Alfred Darlington – is an inventor, a creator of sonic labyrinths combining sounds from an eclectic palette into an innovative genre all his own. With The Light Brigade, Daedelus returns to Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder, a fitting home for the Los Angeles electronic pioneer. A successor to his 2009 Righteous Fists of Harmony (an EP inspired by the Boxer Rebellion), The Light Brigade recalls the Crimean war of 1853-56. The music was written and recorded before the recent troubles broke out in that region, a turn of events which lends an air of requiem to the album.”
“Good music transports you! Bad music transports you as well, just differently!” – Daedelus
