Boomkat Product Review:
Returning with another LP's worth of adventurous hip hop and psychedelic sampler use, Daedelus drops 'Love To Make Music To' with the assistance of a host of friends, including Lilys producer Michael Johnson, Grammy winning rapper Paperboy, vocalist Erika Rose and members of Sa-Ra. On opener 'Fairweather Friends' Daedelus sounds as playful and inventive as ever, crafting patchwork melodies from far outside the perimeters of standard instrumental hip hop production, and next up, 'Make It So' bursts into life as if some lost 7" from a new romantic-era band. When he invites guest vocalists onto the album there's a general tendency to perhaps be a little over-accommodating to them, permitting too much space in the mix for N'fa on 'Twist The Kids', which sounds a little under-produced by Daedelus standards. No such charge could be levelled at 'You're The One' however, which probably comes closest to capturing the plunderphonic exotica that tended to characterise sample selections on previous Daedelus albums. In this instance those sounds are sculpted into something more overtly songlike thanks to the vocal contributions of Sa-Ra's Om'mas Keith. 'Drummery Jam' takes a similarly playful trawl through kitsch '50s-style audio clips, but cuts jarring acid house motifs in and out of the mix, destabilising everything. As it turns out the thumping rave undertones are a bit of a theme running throughout the album, and 'I Took Two' features a pretty heavy bass presence and a 4/4 kick pattern to match. For all its schizoid tendencies, 'Love To Make Music To' still somehow fits in with Daedelus' screwy sound world, and stands as another triumphant entry into his already impressive discography.
