Download Daedelus' 'Five Years of FoF' Mix
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Home to artists such as Shlohmo, LOL Boys, Groundislava, Salva, and others over the years, 2014 marks the fifth anniversary of Los Angeles imprint Friends of Friends. To mark the occasion, the label is said to have a compilation in the works (as well as a pair of anniversary shows in LA and Seattle next month), but first, the label has tapped LA beatmaker Daedelus—who recently announced his forthcoming The Light Brigade LP for Brainfeeder—to put together a label-spanning Five Years of FoF mix. The 40-plus-minute session is said to be made entirely of songs from the Friends of Friends catalog, which includes a number of jaunts into moody beat territory as well as a handful of more club-rooted affairs.
Though no tacklist has appeared along with it, Daedelus' Five Years of FoF mix can be streamed and download in full below. Details of the label's 5oFoF compilation, and some other "fun goodies," are still forthcoming at this time.
