The mighty Daedelus returns with his new Mush full-length, the fifteen track dancefoor masterpiece, Daedelus Denies the Day's Demise. With a slight tweak to the formula, Daedelus' magic music box has cranked out a project of techno inspried programming infused with Brazilian Bossa Nova, complete with shakers, hand claps, congas, and other mysterious percussion. Of course the multilayered melding of disparate sounds from far-off times that Daedelus has built a career on remain the focus of each mix. Whether the music reaches you through sweaty club speakers or the refreshing cool of headphones, it will become clear on first listen that this album could only be the production work of Daedelus.With a string of releases on Plug Research, Hefty, Tigerbeat 6, and Eastern Development, Daedelus has refined a style that has no imitators. Contrasting IDM styled cut-ups with childlike arrangements from the 30s and 40s, he has created a sound that is entirely new. His productions find the hidden common denominator between modern electronics and sampled music from days gone by. Recording out of Santa Monica, Daedelus also incorporates hip-hop into his mix, with guest spots from Busdriver, MF Doom, Absract Rude, Madlib, and High Priest (Anti-Pop Consortium). His live show, which utilizes a custom-built sample trigger device and software package, has amazed audiences across the US, Europe, and Japan and secured his reputation as one of the most exciting producers in electronic music.
