Daedelus - Overwhelmed feat. Bilal - out on Ninja Tune



Daedelus Overwhelmed feat Bilal
Daedelus - Overwhelmed feat. Bilal
(Digital Single) Ninja Tune ZENDNLS294, 2011-08-08

Everyone's favourite purveyor of electronic Victorian dandyism returns with a new EP of remixes from his Bespoke album. Featuring the space-soul vox of Bilal, the original is as muscular as it is intircate, a continuing tribute to the West Coast producer's way with sound. Anyone who runs wobble-bass up against drum tardiddles and the odd burst of thumping four-to-the-floor is okay by us. First up on remix duty is Star Slinger. Hotly tipped by the likes of Jamie XX and Diplo, Mr Slinger slathers the tune in galaxy-funk keys and gets his considerable groove on. New Ninja signing Raffertie harnesses warm bass to a xylophone orchestra for a mix so good it appears twice (the second time as a dub). Hot Flush-signed Sepalcure take Tailor Made and unleash its inner rave monster, with a final result that sounds like a group of choir boys tripping in 'Beefa. Innovative and clever, but also soulful and with an easy feel for the funk, Daedelus is one of the wonders of modern electronic music. Smarten up.

Everyone's favourite purveyor of electronic Victorian dandyism returns with a new EP of remixes from his "Bespoke" album. Featuring the space-soul vox of Bilal, the original is as muscular as it is intircate, a continuing tribute to the West Coast producer's way with sound. Anyone who runs wobble-bass up against drum tardiddles and the odd burst of thumping four-to-the-floor is okay by us.

First up on remix duty is Star Slinger. Hotly tipped by the likes of Jamie XX and Diplo, Mr Slinger slathers the tune in galaxy-funk keys and gets his considerable groove on. New Ninja signing Raffertie harnesses warm bass to a xylophone orchestra for a mix so good it appears twice (the second time as a dub). Hot Flush-signed Sepalcure take "Tailor Made" and unleash its inner rave monster, with a final result that sounds like a group of choir boys tripping in 'Beefa.

Innovative and clever, but also soulful and with an easy feel for the funk, Daedelus is one of the wonders of modern electronic music. Smarten up.

Press :
"Finessing electronic sounds with organic instruments, Bespoke definitely has the texture and finish of quality craftsmanship. A successful fusion of sonic and sartorial elegance" - Uncut 4/5
"Dresses like he's pals with Oscar Wilde and Sun Ra and performs like he's grooving in the fancy space orchard with James Last, Todd Rundgren and Mark Ronson." - Observer
"Easy to feel both the width and the quality." -Mojo
