The revered eccentric of the L.A. beat scene is back! Daedalus has announced a new album “Labyrinths” and released two tracks to mark the occasion. A far-reach from the densely 808-laden title track, “Special Re: Quest” instead floats by with a beautiful playfulness that is more akin to a B-side from The Avalanches.
A myriad of drum sounds and break-beat samples appear, with soft electric piano keys providing the foundation of the song and a delightfully improvisational bass-line morphing its way throughout the piece. With the chosen singles, Daedelus reminds us that in his experimental style he can be bold and forthright, or dandy and calming.
