Boomkat Product Review:
A quite magical record lies before you. Imagine a master of plunderphonics entering your head and bringing all the happy childhood memories back, even if you we're a child of the 1930's, 1940's or like me 1970's. Daedelus, like Dntel before him, cut his craft on outsider label Phthalo - not that you'd know that by listening to this. Cut n' paste in a Raymond Scott/Jim Henson way, humour like the best of Kid Koala, floating laidback jazz feel like the best of early Hefner/Cinematic Orchestra and electronica production that blends it all together into a magnificent whole. Caught halfway between the real and the unreal. The music on Invention combines multiple instruments, including non-traditional ones such as computer printers, toy pianos, and the techno harp known as the Omnichord. One crazy referance is 'Muggle Born' 50's cinemetic melodrama music remixed by Nobukazu Takemura with the flute theme to 'The Fall In Rise Of Reginald Perrin' floating in the background. As a bonus he also invites local MC talents Busdriver and Sach to flow over two masterful tracks.
