Daedelus + MC Quake and The Seismonauts

Wednesday 21st February/Doors 8pm/Entry 6

Peacock Visual Arts, 21 Castle Street, Aberdeen, AB10 5BQ Phone (01224) 639539

Daedelus, the eccentric, electronic maestro of the Pacific coast. One of LA's most daring new artists this young musical romantic weaves together a true "love-sound" that falls between honeyed melody and avant-electronics. Daedelus chops and splices disparate acoustic sources into incredible works of staggering resonance. Contrasting IDM styled cut-ups with childlike arrangements from the 30's and 40's, he has refined a style that has no imitators. Exactly the kind of music you‚d expect from a scarily well-connected hip hop nut who happens to dress in Edwardian clothing and names himself after an Ancient Greek Legend.

With a body of work including releases through Mush, Plug Research, Hefty, Tigerbeat6, and Eastern Developments & now Ninja Tunes, Daedelus' rep is long since established.

With very special guests MC Quake and The Seismonauts. MC Quake follows his whims wherever they lead, blending sonic experimentation, beats, found sounds, hip-hop and anything else that seems to sound good at the time into music that is truly hard to pigeonhole. With a live band featuring leading luminaries from the Fence Collective.

I believe MC Quake will be bringing his vintage badges for sale. If anyone missed out on these at the Ivor Cutler night, then this is the place to be!

This is part of a review of the MC Quake warm-up show for the main event on Wednesday.....

It was as with all the things that Fence do, one of those special moments, one in which you just had to be there. And lets be honest these are the special moments that lead 40-50 people + to gather in Anstruther on a Friday night in the middle of February.

Finally, MC Quake and the seismonauts take to tha stage and to a backdrop of groove and tune (Uncle Beesly was on fire last night, could have been the new image) Quake fired out his trademark raps engaging with everyone in the room and whilst entertaining the masses also providing us with something to thing about at the same time. But where it works best for me is when Quake provides on of his spoken word monolgues and the band play behind him..And so we come back to the closing number, it all clicked and they were off and running,
