Daedelus Details the Production Process Behind His New LP for Anticon
In a new interview, longstanding Los Angeles beatmaker—who also happens to be last week's XLR8R podcast contributor—Daedelus explains in detail the technology and philosophies which yielded Drown Out, the man's brand-new LP for Anticon. The discussion, which arrives as part of Resident Advisor's ongoing Machine Love series, touches on the roles played by traditional record studios and analog recording equipment during the album's creation. Daedelus also goes into detail about his sound-sculpting process (which he refers to as "mulching") and how he incorporated the 808 into the record's production—particularly utilizing the fabled drum machine as an impulse source for other units rather than simply just as a drum machine. RA's comprehensive Machine Love interview with the soundsmith can be read here.
