It seems like just yesterday that one of our all time favorite guests during the YFL and JACKSON era of shows – one Mr. Alfred Darlington, aka DAEDELUS – graced us with a virtuoso monome performance in signature dandied-out attire.
The Los Angeles based Darlington – whose prolific output over the years for the storied likes of ALPHA PUP, EASTERN DEVELOPMENTS, PLUG RESEARCH, MUSH, and recently for LA beat scene compatriot Flying Lotus’s BRAINFEEDER imprint – continued his hot streak of releases for NINJA TUNE in 2011 with the Bespoke full length and the Overwhelmed ep, with nary a slowdown in sight.
Known as much for his uniquely playful-but-intricate electronic musical take as he is for pioneering the use of the monome controller, it’s the latter that never fails to surprise. So much so, that his interweaving of bass-laden, headnod-inducing tracks with unexpected dancefloor classics (read: stardust), would punctuate two of our more raucous nights in the YFL & Jackson event series.
Suffice it to say that we’re looking forward to re-making his acquaintance this Friday as the fine folks at THE MID feature his live electronic monome prowessness, alongside fellow beatmavens EMANCIPATOR and LITTLE PEOPLE.
