Daedelus is an aspiration of music without limit. Their discography stretches back more than 20 years and is fittingly erratic, with a dizzying list of collaborators. Los Angeles-based producer Alfred Darlington, better known as Daedelus, has been undeniably influential in the LA electronic scene, establishing an inventive style that lands in a sweet spot between experimental IDM (intelligent dance music) and abstract hip-hop. They’ve released on Brainfeeder, Ninja Tune and Anticon, and also runs the Magical Properties imprint. They are founding faculty of Berklee’s EDI (electronic digital instrument) performance program.

NYC-based Bermudian synth artist and techno producer Russell E.L. Butler explores their catalog of immense, experimental, and radiant techno. Russell has painstakingly cultivated a unique artistic expression that integrates and investigates themes around process, technological innovation, the archive, and decolonization. Their works have taken the form of vinyl records, digital releases, live A/V performances, and special archiving projects.

Fayetteville-based neighborhood disk jockey Afrosia J (aka DJ Afrosia) was introduced to the music scene as a college radio host and music festival promoter, traveling the region attending many music festivals. She has since immersed herself in being a fierce femcee and performing at a variety of regional events, including the NWANorthwest Arkansas’s Annual Business Women’s Conference , Crystal Bridges’ New 365 nNew yYear’s celebration, and NWA Fashion Week.
