The craftsmanship that these three artists have is incomparable to others. Make sure you cop your ticket now before it’s too late; this will be an action-packed night full of fun.
Daedelus, also known as Alfred Darlington, is a Los Angeles-based producer. He’s just as distinct in music as his taste in fashion is–Daedelus is dandy to the core. Founded in 2001, he is also part of the groups The Long Lost (with wife Laura Darlington) and Adventure Time. He is also affiliated with the internet radio station Dublab, often appearing on their station.
As a child Daedelus was classically and jazz trained in multiple instruments. After having an epiphany at age 15 in London, he joined local rock bands, jazz bands and ska bands back in the states. However, something was still holding him back. Inspired by Warp Records, Ninja Tune and other electronic artists, Daedelus began to DJ. Originally he was interested in creating drum and bass, but everything he created pushed the boundaries originally drawn by his influences.
He has released 14 solo albums, 14 EPs and 9 singles since the beginning of his music career. All of his music is intricate, complex and cohesive. He’s worked with the Gaslamp Killer and Busdriver. The amount of remixes he’s done is out of this world, the list including the likes of Baths, Nosaj Thing, Flying Lotus and Open Mike Eagle. His most recent album, titled Labyrinths, was released in 2016.
Known as Charles Dickerson, Mono/Poly is an electronic producer from Bakersfield, California. His first EP came out in 2009, titled The George Machine. Next, he released his debut LP, Paramatma…
