Daedelus
Daedelus
Alfred Darlington isn’t your average cookie-cutter musician. From how he looks (early Victorian Dandism), 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 broad and varied – less a prodigy than a renaissance boy whose obsessions ranged from Greek legend to the mountains of Wales. As a 15 year old he finally persuaded his parents to take him to the Principality. Whilst in a YMCA in London he flipped the radio dial, found a pirate radio station and taped some UK rave and hardcore. “It was my first ‘Eureka!’ moment in music,” he says.

Back in the US he joined local rock bands, jazz bands and ska bands, which he enjoyed but felt limited by,too. At home he was listening to Warp, Ninja and your harder electronic stuff. He started DJing out the more leftfield side of drum and bass and making his own rudimentary productions. They were meant to be drum & bass but they kept turning out different and from his outsider’s experiments his own style was born. He chose the name Daedelus as he had a childhood obsession with invention, and what was he doing, after all, if not tinkering and fiddling and experimenting like the “gentleman inventors” of old?

PBDY is the alias of Paul Preston, an LA-based DJ, producer, and founder of TAR, a rising label and artist collective including names like DJ Earl, Kai Whiston, Jimi Nxir, and Deantoni Parks. Discovering a love for music in his early years in Phoenix, Preston began his first musical experiments after purchasing an MPC and some turntables, and no sooner was he DJing around town as much as possible. The next step was a move to Los Angeles, inspired by Flying Lotus, who, too, was just starting his career, and suggested via Myspace that Preston take the jump. By July 2011, Preston was settled on the West Coast, keen to immerse himself in LA's beat scene. Together with Jeremiah Jae, Preston began blending his own "weird hip-hop beats" with Jeremiah's raps, the results of which have arrived via various mixtapes and a 2016 album on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder under the alias JP Moregun. He returned to the label earlier this year with a DJ set of the Brainfeeder 2017 ∞ 2018 which features a collection of Brainfeeder tracks and rarities as well as a glimpse of what's to come in 2018. Preston's solo material remains a work in progress. He is now working on his debut solo record. As a DJ, he's supported both Thundercat and Flying Lotus on world tours.
