Daedelus "Fates Say"

This fresh new tune from LA beat scene icon Daedelus not only turns the Men Without Hats classic "Safety Dance" into a quasi-anagram for its title, but also seems to sample a few other bits of the '80s hit. Along with the female voice spelling out nothing in particular, producer Alfred Darlington tosses in a snippet of the original's bassline and some huge vintage-sounding claps with his own staccato synth melody and herky-jerky percussion. Catch this track on vinyl, with five others by Daedelus and four from fellow LA beatsmith Teebs, when Dublin's All City label drops its sixth installment of the ongoing LA 10" series later this month.
