Born Alfred Weisberg-Roberts in Santa Monica, CA, producer/instrumentalist Daedelus wanted to be an inventor from an early age. Despite the fact that he was formally trained on double bass and bass clarinet, had studied jazz at USC, and could play instruments such as the guitar and accordion, Daedelus chose to create electronic music, often incorporating samples from the ’30s and ’40s into his IDM and elliptical hip-hop.
An abundant composer, Daedelus has released several acclaimed albums as well as countless singles and side projects. In addition, he has been remixed by (and produced tracks for) many of his peers in the Los Angeles music community including Flying Lotus, Baths, The Gaslamp Killer, and numerous others from further afield.
Look for the third and final performance, “Sundown (Haunted Dub),” to premiere April 18th.
