P.O.W. Mix Series, Volume XVII: Daedelus — “LOVE to make mixes to”

For the 17th installment in the POW mix series, LA beat scene legend Daedelus takes you from Rae Sremmurd to Arthur Russell, Jeremih to the Escorts.
By    February 9, 2015


For his first trick, Daedelus fades seaside carnival mellotron sounds into Rae Sremmurd’s “Lit Like Bic.” From there, the Santa Monica-bred hero of haberdashery lays an old soul reverie from The Moments into the East Flatbush Project. The legerdemain dazzles for 30 more minutes, where asphalt slaps are remixed with pixelated beauty (and vice versa). “Shabba” is laid over the instrumental to Madvillain’s “Accordian.” If you didn’t already know, the accordian sample originally came from Daedelus. He is one of the true originals.

And yes, he’s headlining Thursday night’s POW Presents show. Feb. 12 at The Echoplex alongside Boogie and Zeroh. Be there or be forced to confront yourself with the fact that you don’t recognize true artistry. Kanye told me to tell you that. He also told me to tell you to buy tickets here.

“Better to have loved and lost then to have never loved at all. But what if you want to get a little lost? a little high up amongst clouds? This mix is for those dreamers that aspire not for saint’s day or sinners shame, rather a twisting journey (sometimes with beats).” — Daedelus
