Daedelus ‘End of Empire’ 3xLP Box Set
Pre-order. Due 15th November.
Legit pioneer and standard bearer for experimental electronics, Daedelus returns on Brainfeeder with a special edition 3LP box set titled ‘End of Empire’. The epic trilogy comprises 2010’s ‘Righteous Fists of Harmony’ (inspired by The Boxer Rebellion, 1899- 1901); 2014’s ‘The Light Brigade’ (that recalled the Crimean War of 1853-56) and new album ‘The Bittereinders’ (inspired by The Second Boer War, 1899- 1902).
“From the belief that contemporary events are too difficult to address, I’ve reached back into history to relate some of what is largely forgotten to directly look into the ravages which continue to echo. All records fuse unrelenting repetition of lyric and forms, evocative noise and reaching melodies.” - Daedelus
For fans of Flying Lotus, Autechre, Susumu Yokota.
Three black vinyl LPs in 3mm spined sleeves housed in a rigid board outer slipcase. Artwork by Umar Rashid. Digital download included.
Daedelus was heavily involved in last year’s ‘Brainfeeder X’ celebrations, celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the Los Angeles label with a compilation album, a sold-out show at O2 Academy Brixton, radio shows on NTS and takeover of the Bleep pop-up store in Dalston.
