Like his mythological namesake, Daedelus - otherwise known as Alfred Darlington - is an inventor, a creator of sonic labyrinths combining sounds from an eclectic palette into an innovative genre all his own. To celebrate its 15th anniversary, Daedelus is repackaging his seminal debut Invention in a 2LP package with the complimentary EP The Quiet Party (including appearances from Madlib, Yesterday's New Quintet and Busdriver) in a color vinyl masterpiece. Containing the track "Experience", known in part as a sample in Madvillain's accordion, Invention is a genre-spanning opus that marks the start of what has become an illustrious career.
