The rumors are true – KUCR is proud to announce one of the most exciting hip-hop / experimental instrumentalists LA has to offer – Daedelus in concert this Wednesday, 23rd January at 7 PM at the Barn, for free, as part of the ASPB Winter Concert series.
Despite the fact that he was formally trained on double bass and bass clarinet (and also played the guitar and accordion, among other things) and studied jazz at USC, Daedelus ended up going the hip-hop / electronica route, working with artists such as MF Doom, Madlib, Pigeon John, and others – and releasing albums on Plug Research and the notorious Warp. As if that weren’t enough, he gets heavy, heavy rotation at KUCR!
For those of you who can’t wait for Wednesday, here’s a hot-off-the-Stones-Throw-presses video featuring MF Doom on vocals and Daedelus on beats and accordion:
And the brilliant “Fairweather Friends” video, which incidentally made Ryan’s Best of 2007 list:
