Boomkat Product Review:
Following his excellent display of skill and insanity for Scott Herren's Eastern Developments imprint, Mr Daedalus has recruited some of his pals for this excellent remix / new work package. Featuring Yesterdays New Quintet, Madlib, APC's High Priest, Abstract Rude and Busdriver, it's a veritable whos who of beat manglers and jazz heads, fitting in perfectly with the daedalus aesthetic of anything goes as long as it cuts with a beat! Yesterdays New Quintet roll off yet another bubblin' jazz slide, all midnight piano chops and pitch bent moogs, delightful skittering percussion to boot. Madlib's 'Bonus Beats' slinks itself with a heads-down attitude, all sexed up with red lights and the self-restraint necessary to end a track before it outstays its welcome. Ace. Antipop's High Priest makes a rare appearance, his deep, serrated voice imbuing 'Muggle Born' with a slightly menacing drawl that typified so much of APC's finest moments, a hip hop grind with an almost jiggy edge to keep the kids smilin' before the awesome new track 'Girls' drops in with Abstract Rude and Busdriver harking back to an almost daisy-age, feel-good, flute-driven hip hop vibe that will not fail to lift the spirits. Wicked EP from Daedalus and Plug Research, get checkin'!
