Like his mythological namesake, Daedelus is an inventor, a creator of sonic labyrinths. He recombines 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.

Most recently, Daedelus has composed the soundtrack for the award-winning video game Nidhogg.

Records include: Drown Out (2013, Anticon), Looking Ocean (2012, Scion A/V), Bespoke (2011, Ninjatune), Righteous Fist of Harmony (2010, Brainfeeder), Love To Make Music To (2008, Ninjatune), Denies The Day's Demise (2006, Ninjatune), Exquisite Corpse (2005, Ninjatune), Of Snowdonia (2004, Plug Research), A Gent Agent (2004, Laboratory Instinct), Dreams of Water Themes (w/ Frosty as Adventure Time - 2003), The Weather (2003, Mush), Invention (2002, Plug Research), Her's Is &rt; (2001, Phthalo)
