Daedelus has a new album on the way.

LA-based beat musician Alfred Darlington is set to release his first full-length on his own Magical Properties imprint—a sub-label of the Alpha Pup family, through which he has also put out music by the likes of The Gaslamp Killer, Goodnight Cody and Spazzkid. Labyrinths is described by the label as “as a response and critique of the current state of EDM,” with music that is “twisting, complex, and rhizomatic.”

To contribute to many of its cuts, Darlington invited a broad cast of collaborators on board, including fellow LA resident Seven Davis Jr., Moses Sumney, Zeroh, and his wife, Laura Darlington, amongst others.

For a taste of what Daedelus can do, check out his contribution to our Interpretations series from earlier this year.

Labyrinths is scheduled for release on October 28. Pre-order it at the Magical Properties Bandcamp. Stream the title track below.
