Alfred Darlington isn’t your average cookie-cutter musician. From how he looks (early Victorian dandyism), to how he makes music, to how he expresses himself and views the world, his is a very individual, a ‘bespoke’ outlook. Alfred was born in Santa Monica in 1977 to an artist mother and psychologist father. Musical from very early on, as a child he was classically and jazz-trained in a number of instruments, but his interests were a lot broader. Less a prodigy than a renaissance boy whose obsessions ranged from Greek mythology to the mountains of Wales, until he was a teenager he was convinced he’d grow up to be an inventor. As a 15-year-old though, he finally persuaded his parents to take him to Wales and whilst at a YMCA in London, he flipped the radio dial, found a pirate radio station and taped some UK rave and hardcore. Ever since then, Daedelus has been re-inventing the possibilities of ‘electronic’ music and instrumental hip hop with albums on Mush, Plug Research, Laboratory Instinct or Ninja Tune, and mentored and endorsed fellow visioneers such as Busdriver and Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder clique. On top of that, Daedelus has established a unique way to handle the decks & laptop performance dilemma by cutting up his tunes into countless pieces to work with, allowing him to bring fully improvised, interactive sets to the stage.
