DAEDELUS with Jaw Gems
$17 (advanced) / $22 (door)
Alfred Darlington (Daedelus) isnt a paint-by-numbers musician. From how he looks (early Victorian Dandyism), to how he makes music, or how he expresses himself and views the world, his is a very individual bespoke outlook.
L.A. beat scene veteran, Daedelus, explores the boundaries of rave, hip-hop, found sound, and strange samples, carving out a unique space in electronic music. With a restless desire to experiment, he has become one of the most interesting artists to emerge from Los Angeles in recent years, he has collaborated with the likes of Madlib, Kelela, and Flying Lotus, and has recorded on Brainfeeder and Ninja Tune labels.
Jaw Gems conjure the aesthetic of Flying Lotus.creating rich, neo-soul tapestries[Their] keyboard lines roll butter-thick harmonies [and] wrapped snugly around them are shimmering synthesizers, classic Moog timbres, and trebly, swishing rhythms and high hats. EARMILK
Jaw Gems, an electronic outfit from Portland, Maine, is a collective of young, experimental producers bringing beat-music traditionally programmed and played on samplers to a live band setting. The mesmerizing result is a harmonic convergence.
