Daedelus
Daedelus
Like his mythological namesake, Daedelus is an inventor, a creator of sonic labyrinths. He recombines sounds from an eclectic palette into an innovative genre all his own.

Otherwise known as Alfred Darlington, the Los Angeles producer has over two-dozen releases on a variety of labels and collaborations which bridge many worlds, including electronic, jazz, and hip-hop. His music runs the gamut of emotion, from exuberant to melancholy, danceable to introspective.
Mono/Poly
Mono/Poly
In defying the laws of tradition, Los Angeles based music producer Mono/Poly has managed to outstrip the logics of multi-genre producing. Known for his distinct madness of face melting bass, paired with his dreamy astral soundscapes of glitch-based hip-hop, Mono/Poly has proved himself to be a natural phenomenon.

Mono/Poly appears on releases from Warp records and Planet Mu, featured alongside fellow artists Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Daedelus, and Nosaj Thing. His gravitational attraction to revolutionary sounds has gained vast recognition among listeners and artists as one of the hottest up-and-coming producers in the world. He started 2015 with a featured track on the new Grand Theft Auto 5, the release of Ne-Yo's 'Religious', and 'Skip Skip' by Tha Dogg Pound & Snoop Dogg.

2017 has been a busy year for Mono/Poly with a recently released remix on Noisia’s newest album “Outer Edges: Remixes”, as well as working on Thundercat’s newest album “Drunk” and Kendrick Lamar’s latest “DAMN.” He continues to perform his live sets across the globe having covered places such as Greece, Switzerland, France and Lithuania, in addition to his touring in the US.
Free The Robots
Free The Robots
Chris Alfaro always has a new story to tell with his ever-evolving solo project Free the Robots. The next chapter, titled 'The Balance', is exactly that. The sound resonates somewhere between chaos and solitude, where Alfaro has literally found balance. As a musician, beat maker, DJ, and owner of the iconic restaurant / bar, The Crosby, he has always had the ability to jump in and out of other worlds inspiring a unique signature sound that hints at jazz, psych, electronic, and hip hop, while remaining un-genre-fiable. His open-ended imagination and tendency to break free from any boundaries keeps a steady flow of ideas running through his head, constantly moving him forward; away from robotic monotony, ultimately freeing the robots.

Rooted in Santa Ana, CA, Free the Robots has spent over a decade taking his craft to audiences around the globe. Known as one of the pioneering artists to come out of LA's beat movement, he continues on building his line up of original recordings in directions still unknown. The energy and technical skill behind his live performances have landed him among the greats, sharing stages with the likes of Dj Shadow, Prefuse 73, Flying Lotus, to Afrika Bambaataa.

With the recent release of 'The Balance', Alfaro continues to demonstrate a consistent flow of freedom and diversity with his sound. From beginning to end, listening to 'The Balance' will take you on a cerebral journey through your inner world. While you're there, let go of your surroundings and let your imagination run free.
