Yeah, that long holiday week is almost here, isn’t it? Well if you want to tack on an extra two days, this might be your ticket. On Thursday night, Free the Wax is bringing Daedelus to The Shelter with his brand of hip-hop/synthpop/electronica. What’s it sound like?
“Brilliant fusion of Aphex Twin and Aaliyah. Like Beck at his very best…” WORD
“Both playful and impassioned, sweet and creatively sharp, Daedelus’ latest is also his Love-liest.” TIME OUT
“Sounds like LCD Soundsystem gorging on vintage synthpop.” Observer
Consider also that this man has collaborated with the likes of MF Doom, Busdriver, and Prefuse 73. You can also channel your inner music geek by taking a look at Daedelus’s music interface, the MONOME. Neither a turntable nor a synthesizer, the MONOME is a flexible, adaptable music interface grid with lots of fun blinking lights. Check it out, along with a sampling of Daedelus’s tunes, at the YouTube video below.
Thursday September 25th: Daedelus plays The Shelter, located at 5 Yongfu Lu near Fuxing Xi Lu (永福路5号，近复兴西路). 50 RMB gets you in the door starting at 10 PM. DJ ELNOMO opens.
