Daedelus – Exquisite Corpse

Still wet from his production work on parts of Bus Driver’s new album, Fear Of A Black Tangent, Daedelus hits us with his own album to push forward avant-core.

He’s not short of people to help out either, along the way the album features input from MF Doom, Sci from Scienz Of Life, Laura Darling, Prefuse73, TTC, CYNE, Mike Ladd, Jogger and Hrishikesh Hirway from The One AM Radio, all of whom add to the rich variety of shades and tones on Exquisite Corpse.


Buy Exquisite Corpse from Amazon.co.uk

As the hip hop on view to the general public becomes more and more formulaic and boring, the likes of Daedelus and his contemporaries are showing what can really be done with the genre and prove that it’s still as exciting today as it’s ever been.
