Daedalus was my first favorite electronic artist. His was the first vinyl I bought, Rethinking The Weather. He was the first DJ/producer I ever sought to see, numerous times. I even shook his hand when I saw him open for Jamie Lidell at the MOCA and silently exploded in appreciation for his taste of dress — white sneakers, brown slacks and a blue velvet tailcoat — disheveled, with a touch of a mad scientist.
But Daedalus IS a mad scientist with his beats, and his circuit bending, and his motivations behind exactly what he does — he’s really a genius. So it is with nostalgic sentiments I share his latest, an exclusive for Mixmag entitled, “Curtains Don’t Talk.” It’s like listening experience in subtraction. MATHEMATICAL!
