Daedelus - Tailor-Made - out on Ninja Tune



Daedelus Tailor-Made
Daedelus - Tailor-Made
(promo CD/Digital) Ninja Tune ZENCDS281P/ZENDNLS281, 2011-03-21
(12") Ninja Tune ZEN12281, 2011-04-04

After a busy couple of years of touring, remixing and releasing singles and EPs with Brainfeeder, All City, Magical Properties (the Daedelus home-imprint), Alpha Pup, Warp and Stones Throw, Alfred Darlington aka Daedelus returns with his new full length album on Ninja Tune, Bespoke. The first single from the album is, suitably, "Tailor-Made," both titles summing up the unique and eccentric vision of a musical artist as obsessed with the clothing of the Victorian era as he is with the music of the future. Tailor-Made is a delicious amalgam of wiggly keyboard lines, four-to-the-floor kicks, drum box flourishes and woozy, beautiful vox from Milosh. It builds and builds into a frenzied, ecstatic Daedelesque finale which will have you itching for the full album. Remix duties are taken care of by highly-rated fellow LA-er Jennifer Lee aka TOKiMONSTA. She gives it some of the LA Beat Scene lope while sneaking it a double-time shuffle all her own. The final single will feature a remix by Floating Points and some instrumental versions.

Press Release :
After a busy couple of years of touring, remixing and releasing singles and EPs with Brainfeeder, All City, Magical Properties (the Daedelus home-imprint), Alpha Pup, Warp and Stones Throw, Alfred Darlington aka Daedelus returns with his new full length album on Ninja Tune, "Bespoke." The first single from the album is, suitably, "Tailor-Made," both titles summing up the unique and eccentric vision of a musical artist as obsessed with the clothing of the Victorian era as he is with the music of the future.

"Tailor-Made" is a delicious amalgam of wiggly keyboard lines, four-to-the-floor kicks, drum box flourishes and woozy, beautiful vox from Milosh. It builds and builds into a frenzied, ecstatic Daedelesque finale which will have you itching for the full album. Remix duties are taken care of by highly-rated fellow LA-er Jennifer Lee aka TOKiMONSTA. She gives it some of the LA Beat Scene lope while sneaking it a double-time shuffle all her own. The final single will feature mixes by Floating Points, Treasure Fingers and Sepalcure.

"Tailor-Made" is just a taster of an album that features vocal talent "from all around this current music mess" (as Darlington puts it). The record includes contributions from acclaimed soul singer Bilal, Inara George (Bird and A Bee), Busdriver (fast rapper taking a turn singing), Anti-Con beatmaker Baths, debutant Kelela Mizanekristos and Amir Yaghmai as Young Dad. In addition, Yaghami also played guitar on much of the record, Om'mas Keith of Sa Ra contributed keyboards and Alfred's Uncle Pete (aka Pete Curry of surf band Los Satraightjackets) played most of the drums. Unsurprisingly, everything fits perfectly…
