One of L.A.’s most daring new artists, Daedelus weaves together a true “love-sound” that falls between honeyed melody and avant-electronics.
Daedelus chops and splices disparate acoustic sources into incredible works of staggering resonance. Contrasting IDM-styled cut-ups with childlike arrangements from the ’30s and ’40s, he has refined a style that has no imitators. The Daedelus live show, which utilizes a custom-built sample trigger device known as “The Box,” has amazed audiences across the US, Europe, and Japan, securing his reputation as one of the most exciting producers in electronic music.
Now, for the first time, one of Daedelus’ live sets has been recorded at L.A.’s legendary Low End Theory club night, and is being made available to the general public, fittingly titled Live at Low End Theory.

“One of music’s true innovators, a guy who produces abundantly and constantly challenges the norms.” — XLR8R
“A disparate blend of hip/trip-hop, IDM-styled cut-ups, and your favorite nursery rhymes, Daedelus’ music scoffs at categorization.” — CMJ
“To immerse oneself in the miracle of Daedelus’ music is to experience transformation through a seemingly infinite sense of discovery: ideas lead to other ideas lead to other ideas leading to–where does it all end? And who will we be when we get there?” — L.A. Weekly
