Daedelus is producer Alfred Darlington, one of the founders of the LA beat scene. ‘Special Re: Quest’ is the lead single from his album Labyrinths dropping October 28th, making it the first record on his own imprint, Magical Properties. The album promises to be his most interesting and combinatorial, mixing elements of electronica, hip-hop, and jazz.
Twisting, complex, and rhizomatic – Daedelus unfurls a maze of genre on Labyrinths, juxtaposing disparate influences while maintaining an underlying love and appreciation for all styles. The record serves as a response and critique of the current state of EDM, in which Daedelus attempts to answer his own questions with style rather than cynicism using the labyrinth metaphor.
