LA's godfather of emotionally jarring and intellectually stimulating pan-electronica is bringing his famous Monome to Le Poisson Rouge. Having built his reputation via collaborations with MF DOOM, Prefuse73 and Busdriver, Alfred Darlington aka Daedelus, is the industry standard for sample-centric instrumental music, whose style encompasses hip-hop, downtempo, trance and glitch.
Darlington took the name Daedelus from James Joyce, evidence of his clever use of found material. His resonant style has no peer in hip-hop or electronica, but he holds sway in both circles. Madvillain sampled one of his tracks for an instrumental. His talent has been proliferated by a host of labels including Temporary Whatever, Mush, Eastern Developments and Warp
We had the great pleasure of crafting a show poster for his March 2nd, 2013 gig at Le Poisson Rouge.
