Like his mythological namesake, Daedelus is an inventor, a creator of sonic labyrinths combining sounds from an eclectic palette into an innovative genre all his own. Otherwise known as Alfred Darlington, the Los Angeles producer has over two-dozen releases on a variety of labels and collaborates with musicians in many worlds: electronic, jazz, hip-hop, etc. His music runs the gamut of emotion, alternately intense and mellow, exuberant and melancholy, danceable and introspective.
Daedelus has performed over a thousand shows for audiences on five continents, everywhere from Iceland to Istanbul. He is a founding father of the L.A. “Beat Scene,” often playing the storied Low End Theory club nights. Each live show is unique, employing Monome controllers and open-source software which allows for on-the-fly improvisation. The backdrop onstage is Daedelus’ collaborative invention Archimedes, a robotic array of moving mirrors which reacts to and reflects the performance. Daedelus most recently composed the soundtrack for the award-winning video game Nidhogg.
Chris Alfaro is Free the Robots. The genre-defying artist pulls together heavy doses of traditional jazz, psych, electronic and hip-hop, with progressive melodies and devastating drums into a rich pot of sound. His techniques create harmony between genres with the blending of obscure samples with analog and digital compositions.
In defying the laws of tradition, Los Angeles based music producer Mono/Poly has managed to outstrip the logics of multi-genre producing. Known for his distinct madness of face melting bass, paired with his dreamy astral soundscapes of glitch-based hip-hop, Mono/Poly has proved himself to be a natural phenomenon.
Mono/Poly appears on releases from Warp records and Planet Mu, featured alongside fellow artists Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Daedelus, and Nosaj Thing. His gravitational attraction to revolutionary sounds has gained vast recognition among listeners and artists as one of the hottest up-and-coming producers in the world. He started 2015 with a featured track on the new Grand Theft Auto 5, the release of Ne-Yo’s ‘Religious’, and ‘Skip Skip’ by Tha Dogg Pound & Snoop Dogg.
2017 has been a busy year for Mono/Poly with a recently released remix on Noisia’s newest album “Outer Edges: Remixes”, as well as working on Thundercat’s newest album “Drunk”, Kendrick Lamar’s latest “DAMN.” and releasing “Union EP” with london vocalist Alyss in July. He continues to perform his live sets across the globe having covered places such as Greece, Switzerland, France and Lithuania, in addition to his touring in the US.
