Adventure Time is the duo of sonic explorers Daedelus and Frosty. Having met in the music-geek haven of the University of Southern California's student radio station in the mid 1990's, they quickly forged a friendship. These pals carried on their companionship past college and helped found the non-profit Internet radio station dublab.com
in 1999. After many years of shared moments seeking vinyl gems in vast secondhand record bins, they started to collaboratively create collages from excavated records. Their musical experiments were based on out-there audio affinities grounded in beauty, humor and rhythm. Adventure Time's mission has always been focused on the creative recycling of found sounds into newly formed moments of action-packed audio delight.
Of Beyond is the story of Adventure Time's journey through cosmic portals. It's a hopscotch across time and space that strings together astral scenes in a symphony of swirling stardust. Adventure Time have opened their radio telescope wide in order to transmit far-flung fragments from the vast universe. Through their lens we catch layered glimpses of wondrous worlds that glow in unison. We hear rhythms streaking like comets still bright with the energy of time's dawn. We hear melodies buoyant with glee, floating gravity free. This is music in motion, spinning and flashing with the essence of wide existence. Of Beyond is a cosmic map in which dreams and visions merge into vibrant medleys of now. This may be the first we've heard from Adventure Time in awhile, but their tones ring loud and clear.
Adventure Time is Daedelus & Frosty. Let's discover more about this duo…
Eccentric, Contagious, Electrifying. These are some words you could use to describe Los Angeles' electronic artist Daedelus (Alfred Darlington). To experience Daedelus in all his unbridled splendor is only achievable over a large scope. And over the course of a shocking number of LPs, EPs, remixes, and most importantly live improvised appearances; a portrait of an unique artist has been painted in bold strokes. daedelusmusic.com
