Daedelus - XFM Mix & London Archimedes Show
Posted on 16/03/2012
Ahead of Daedelus' A/V spectacular at London's Village Underground on 13 April, we're very pleased to share his XFM guest mix for Mary Anne Hobbs this past Saturday
Taylor McFerrin has sustained an major buzz in the Future Soul scene ever since his 2007 EP 'Broken Vibes' gained heavy rotation by DJ's such as Benji B, Gilles Peterson and Garth Trinidad. His production credits include remixes for The Cinematic Orchestra, Amp Fiddler and Corrine Bailey Rae, as well as album tracks for Jose James and UK Rapper TY.
He has also toured worldwide as a one man show, playing major festivals such as Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, The Big Chill, and Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival. In New York alone he has performed at such legendary venues as The Apollo, The Blue Note, Radio City Music Hall and The Lincoln Jazz Center, opening up for artists such as Erykah Badu, the Roots, Nas, Talib Kweli and J* Davey.
His musical style is equally influenced by the legends of 60's / 70's soul and the kings of the Modern Beat Generation. By playing all the instruments on his productions, while also relying heavily on resampling and chopping up his live takes, he has found a sound that bridges those two worlds.
