This musical romantic weaves together a true "love-sound" that falls between honeyed melody and avant-electronic rave. Recently, he has taken the romantic lead further and formed a husband-and-wife duo, The Long Lost.

Daedelus began his journey into sound with the bass clarinet, and soon graduated into the covenant of double-bass. After an ill-fated affair pondering classical and jazz, rave paved the way, and a burgeoning record collection fueled Daedelus' artistic creativity, preparing the path to his first full length release, Invention. Inspired by '30s, '40s and '70s grooves, and defying genres such as techno and hip-hop, Daedelus gradually begins to venture into the L.A. afterdark.

The music on Invention combines multiple instruments, including non-traditional ones such as computer printers, toy pianos, and among other bent and mis-used, the Omnichord. Daedelus invites local MC talents Busdriver and Sach to flow over the masterful bonus versions of "Quiet Now" and "Pursed Lips Reply." Invention unfolds in dynamic ranges of emotion.

Daedelus has also released Her's Is on Phthalo, The Household EP on Eastern Developments, and has produced The Weather album for Mush Recordings. Then Rethinking The Weather, Meanwhile..., A Gent Agent, Of Snowdonia, Axe Murderation, Exquisite Corpse, Denies The Day's Demise, Fair Weather Friends, Love To Make Music To and it's EPs for Ninja Tune recordings, and most recently Friends of Friends Vol. 1 alongside Jogger.

Daedelus is now found pouring lighter fluid on the turntables at dublab.com, fretting endlessly over his live set, and generally thinking in threes and fours.
