Speaking of LA beatmakers, there’s a new release from Daedelus in the form of split 6-track EP with Jogger on the Friends of Friends label. The idea involves Friends of Friends inviting an artist to do a split EP; they in turn invite another musician or group to complete the split release and commission a designer to create the EP’s artwork on a limited edition T-Shirt (Aren’t all tees limited edition?) which will include a download card. More info.

Here’s the opening head-swirling soulful track from Daedelus on the EP. The video above is the second track ‘LA Nocturn’.

Daedelus – C’est Super

Daedelus is back in Dublin on May 2nd and live he is incredible so go see. Has anyone listened to the bossa-nova type album he did with his wife recently? Haven’t been feeling it too much to post about it here. It’s called The Long Lost and it’s out on Ninja Tune.

I’ve been listening to loads of tunes from electronic beatmakers; the likes of Zomby, Samiyam, Flying Lotus, Joker, Take and other headswirling instrumental music. It’s represented here. Pay special attention to 2000F’s robotic g-funk anthem. It’ll stick to the inside of your brain. Worth noting is that The Long Lost is Daedelus and his wife Laura Darlington and they’ve an album dropping soon. Also, frantic nostalgic buzz at the end :)

2000F – You Don’t Know What Love is

Zomby – I Up

The Long Lost – Woebegone (Flying Lotus Like Woe remix)

Kode9 – Bad
