DAEDELUS

Once working from a studio in Santa Monica, California. A young Daedelus began noodling Bass Clarinet notes, and soon after attempting Double-Bass. After an ill-fated affair pondering classical and jazz, rave paved the way, and a burgeoning record collection fueled Daedelus’ artistic creativity, preparing the path to his first full length release, Invention. Inspired by ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘70s grooves, and defying genres such as downtempo and hip-hop, Daedelus gradually begins to venture into the L.A. afterdark.

The music on Invention combines multiple instruments, including non-traditional ones such as computer printers, toy pianos, and among other bent and mis-used, the Omnichord. Daedelus invites local MC talents Busdriver and Sach to flow over the masterful bonus versions of “Quiet Now” and “Pursed Lips Reply.” Invention unfolds in dynamic ranges of emotion.

Daedelus has also released “Her’s Is >” on Phthalo, an e.p. “The Household” on Scott Herren’s Eastern Developments imprint and has produced “The Weather” album for Mush Recordings. Then “Rethinking The Weather”, “Meanwhile…”, “A Gent Agent”, “Of Snowdonia”, “Axe Murderation”, “Exquisite Corpse”, “Denies The Day’s Demise”, “Fair Weather Friends”, “Love To Make Music To” and it’s SPs for Ninjatune recordings, “Friends of Friends vol. 1” T-shirt EP along side Jogger, “Bespoke” is the his most recent LP.

SLUGABED

Blending influences both classic and contemporary, from the outermost reaches of dubstep, hip hop and beyond, Slugabed’s productions have been gaining props in a big way recently. Under his Slugabed alias, Greg Feldwick evokes the sound and spirit of post-Dilla west coast hip hop, whilst simultaneously stalking the length and breadth of the UK’s dubstep / bass music scene. Or in the words of The Quietus, crafting, “all the best bits of current American pop culture and distilling it along with UK bass music into a typically sceptical Brit attitude.”

Originally hailing from Bath, UK, the 21-year-old ‘beat machine’ relocated to Brighton, where he played an instrumental role in the success of local club night Donky Pitch for which he still holds a residency. The real noise, however, has emanated from Slugabed’s initial pool of 12-inches. 2009 saw the release of ‘Gritsalt’ for Ramp Recordings, as well as a heavy remake of Rick James’ ‘Superphreak’ for Stuff Records, with both demonstrating his ability to combine intelligent and original production skills with serious dancefloor appeal. Mary Anne Hobbs, Mark Pritchard, Benji B and Various Production were among the early converts, all vocalizing their admiration for the young producer.

With an already impressive catalogue of official remixes for the likes of Starkey, Eprom and Kelpe under his belt, he also created his own version of Pharoah Monch’s classic ‘Simon Says’ which has been devastating dancefloors worldwide. However, it was arguably his ‘Ultra Heat Treated’ EP, released in 2009 on the prestigious Planet Mu label, that propelled Slugabed furthest into the spotlight, winning him new support and glowing reviews across the board, as well as interest from some of the best cutting-edge record labels around. Partly as a result he was offered a chance to remix Roots Manuva’s all-time great 'Witness (1Hope)' for Ninja Tune’s twentieth anniversary boxset. The result was one of the stand-outs of that mammoth collection, Manuva himself liking it so much that he requested the instrumental so that he could use it in his live set. An album deal with the label followed shortly after.

Since then, things have really taken off for Feldwick. He has played at the legendary Berghain club in Berlin as part of Scuba’s SUB:STANCE night. He launched Donky Pitch’s record label with the track “Donky Stomp,” toured Canada and remixed both Eskmo and Stateless for his new home label. In addition, he’s planning a tour of Australia and New Zealand in April 2011, plus a summer appearance at the Outlook Festival and work to complete his debut album for Ninja.

LOW LIMIT

Low Limit is New York based Bryant Rutledge, the more experimental half of the electronic duo Lazer Sword, along with Lando Kal.

Creating beats and performing for over ten years, Low Limit’s sets are more like improvised live production showcases, fusing together on the fly a myriad of music including rap, juke, 2-step, grime, ghettotech, glitch, found sounds and happy mistakes. Brave, daring and always fun, the music of Low Limit is unlike any other in this world, and dance floors love him for the combination of hard and hyphy bass, fun samples and jacked-up beats that mosh together to provide an exhilarating experience of movement.

Half of the duo Lazer Sword who rose to prominence via thrilling live shows and sticky mixtapes, Low Limit is the more experimental edge of the future-blapping blade, dabbling in beat bass and slicing up dubstep into a rich mayhem of sound. His music is crammed full of interesting catches and throws, screwed down drops, chopped up rap lyrics and slap-happy drums, all highly danceable and all delivered with flair and style.

With four overseas tours under his belt, releases on several hot labels including Numbers, Fat City, Rush Hour and Friends of Friends and a recent move to beat city central Los Angeles, Low Limit is pushing his swaggering sound even further towards oblivion with popping, glitch-ridden beats that instigate mind-riots and dance floor euphoria.
